He / she seems like they could talk the pants off you ? Anyways - see ya for a cuppa at Ma's - with your delivery of Deep Heat Muscle Rub. Cheers me dear - Jeff x

Mascot name
How about (alliteratively), Otto the Otter, or Otis. On a mythogical note, Odysseus - took him 10 years to complete his journey - hopefully you'll be home a bit sooner than that!

Cheers Jez, hopefully I can check the route out for you then. I'm relying on the amazing scenery to get me through this! Thanks for hostel recommendation, I must get my arse in gear and book it up.

Good Luck!
Hey, I'm a mate of Cecca's and a big cycling tour fan. She tipped me off about your trip, which sounds really cool. I'm thinking about a Lands End – John O’Groats trip myself next year so will be really interested to hear how you get on. Your route looks really interesting – Wicklow’s south of Dublin should be good fun and you’re guaranteed some awesome scenery. Anyway, will be checking your blog. Best of luck! Jez PS. Carbisdale hostel is fantastic - one of the best UK hostels going :o)

Safety report
Hi Hanna, I hear we've missed some adventures by leaving the truck but having a fantastic time here in SA instead and very happy to be here instead! Just to let you know I met up with Dan last weekend and he's well and still on the bike, so don't worry too much!! We cooked up a braii for him so hopefully he was sustained for another day of riding! Might hold you to a cup of tea sometime when I'm back in Dorset!

Home is in sight
Hey guys, thanks for comments, great to hear from everyone. Look forward to catching up with all your travel stories when I get home Khemmie, how's the culture shock going now you're back?! Loving SA it's a great country although a strange one too as I'm sure you noticed. For all those wondering, I'm flying home on the 5th May so will try to catch up with all of you sometime soon after that. Hope everyone is well, fxx
3rd April 2007

Hey hun
Great pics!!! Brings back a lot of memories for me of south africa. It's a beautiful place isn't it? I want to go back there. What date are you back in the uk? I just got back a few days ago. Lotsa love and hugs, khem xxx

Long time many miles
Hay how's it all working out now that you're travelling n your own timetable? I think you did well lasting 4 months, especially when your comments before you left were along the lines of "Not sure how I'll do as I have to have a cup of tea in the morning......" :-p You have any idea how long ou are staying out there for? And do you think yo'll try another continent before coming home again.....I am guessing you will get a job (hate it of course) save up some more money and head back out to another corner of the world. And I don't blame you - leave the rat race behind - at least you had the guts to do it...I'd love to but just cant bring myself to give up the fun fun fun of working in an office :D Take care girly. C xXx

If you are passing Edmondsham, once you are back in UK, do pop in! Best wishes, Hanna

A very nice discription and excellent pictures
14th March 2007

Hey Nick! How was Kenya? (sorry know that was ages ago now!) You said exactly how I felt about group travel, having a great time now I`m independent! Would love to see whales again but sadly not the right time of year, as for sharks, not so sure about them but I know Gerry will be up for it so will get recommendations from you. Went on safari today and still buzzing from it, will try and put up pics later. Hopefully see you when I get back fxx
7th March 2007

Hey Frankie, been following the journals with interest! Sounds like too many people together after a while - I did exactly the same in Mad. and left for 4 days, headed off into the uknown. Perhaps the best 4 days of the 3 month trip, totally independent and free to do whatever whenever, without having to agree it with the rest of the party! When you get down towards Capetown, look up Hermanus and Gansbaai - H for whale watching and G for White Shark Diving - will email you all the info you need if you want it! Safe travels, Nick
