Outside The Walls

What a beauty.
I have posted this in TB's 'Follow that Road' thread in the Photography Forum. Did you follow that road? Quite evocative.

Did I follow that road?
Haha, I didn't, actually! I walked through the medina to get to the other side.

Are adherants tolerated in Islamic Iran, Derek. I came upon Zoroastrianism in Tajikistan and their god was an interesting fellow indeed.

Yes, they are, as are Armenian Christians. According to a follower we talked to however, they don't too many favours as a religious minority unfortunately...

Hi, I am a traveler also, but the idea of going to Belarus never occurred to me. I have been to Moscow and St. Pete but of course our guide took us to the nice places, some actually stunning. But I'd like to travel with you and your imaginative, daring and adventurous spirit. My husband is oh, so conservative. We are going to see gorillas for my 80th b'day and that is going out on the limb for him. You write well. Thanks.

Excellent Wrap Up
It's been a pleasure following your blog through the 2.5 years and countless countries. I envied how you navigated with ease on a strict budget. Good luck acclimatizing back into reality. I'm sure you will be planning future travels while earning some pesos in the meantime.

Journey of a Lifetime...
As we said before, an amazing journey. Stories for a lifetime! We passed many times over the last couple of years. Would have loved to grab a beer. Thanks for all the great stories. You must be exhausted, but I still sensed a little bit of curiosity when you described places you would like to see someday. Best of luck in your "new" life and we hope to read more eventually!

Again, it's been a great journey following you...
so relax for a while, and return when you are ready.

Welcome home!
Welcome back to Auckland! Give yourself time to digest it all, that was one hell of a trip you went on. Hopefully this good weather hangs around for a while for you, and best of luck in making the decision where to call home for the next couple of years.

Home at last
You have obviously had heaps of adventures...heaps of highlights, Derek. I have thoroughly enjoyed the ride...vicariously but still a blast. Enjoy the rest...enjoy the itchy feet...pining to be back on the road.

Are you OK?
Did you find out what was causing you pain on that last day? I'm figuring you recovered or else we wouldn't have had this post. I was expecting an entry detailing your trip to the emergency room, or some such. Being sick while traveling sucks, and I'm hoping that whatever ailed you is now a thing of the past.
22nd December 2017

Yes, I'm fine
Haha, thanks so much for your concern - yes, I am fine. I went to see a doctor as soon as I got home and by then I was much better already. He said it was some sort of infection but it cleared pretty quickly. As of now I have a clean bill of health!
