Keep Trotting Hoggers
As always, great to received Master John's highly (sometimes too highly) detailed Travel Blog about the latest excursion up the Irrawaddy or wherever. Must admit, he always makes it seem most attractive with his delightful turn of phrase (? Bill Bryson's Apprentice) and as we read it here in the shivering, damp South West of England, even the doubtful delights of the bog-washer must add some light to the gloom. Enjoy the rest of your journey in the Tropics and look forward to the real delights of Perth and the wineries of the Margaret River. You lucky people !!! Much love to you both xx

Loved Borneo too
We didn't get as far a field as you did but we loved Borneo also. It is another world. We met a couple from Vancouver, Canada (usually I run the other way when I see Canadians and Americans, I can see them at home), but born and raised in Kk. We were so lucky to have them show us the ins and outs of KK, what to see,where to go that the tourists weren't, places tourists did not get to see and last but not least the different types of food we were bound to encounter along the way. It gave us a good bit of knowledge to carry on in the rest of Malaysia and look like we knew what we were doing. Dam good actors we are. Glad you felt the same way.

Where are you
Where are you??? I need my "travel fix" I am having a hard time breathing waithing for you. Haven't heard from you for a while (it seems). Home for 2 1/2 months and I am ready to go again. We are planning our next trip 2015 - two months in Bali. Okay I know you are ready to get home, see the babies and get back to normal. Remember Bali, 2015. Would love to see you there!!!. Enough of that - back to where are you? All your fans are waiting to read more. Life is so dull without your blogs. Big Hugs from Canada.

Not much here to match your adventures
Just beautiful pics and more entertaining tales. Borneo does sound magic even with the mozzies, heat and dust, dodgey politics, roads etc. Could you do any snorkelling in those fabulous waters? Can't imagine how you will cope coming home ... As to your quiz - to keep it on the polite side, on second glance it looks like a calcified scoop of butterscotch ice cream .

WOW! We are SO envious
Just love your blogs. Can almost feel we are there with you. Great pics and comments. Really miss that Asian madness and never knowing what each day will bring. To say we are restless would be an understatement especially with this weird cold weather we are having. Each time a new chapter of your blog arrives, I have to go back and reread the previous ones to remember where you got to! So good to realise that you are able to get the most out of this trip despite such a rotten start, Jane, and then more symptoms out there. Hopefully John, your back is surviving taking on camel/bullock activities for both your gear. Surprised you didn't go for massage therapy whilst Jane was doing her thing! I can see why your thoughts turned to the possibility of TukTuk licence especially the motorbike version! The Killing Fields Memorial is certainly one thing I had on my list, even though so sobering, but really interesting hearing about this. Wonder what the current World young feel about it all. Unreal, like WW1 and WW2, I guess. Enough - will see you all too soon in reality now! Take care and safe flight home x

Wow what a place, glad they've put up a memorial to all those poor people who were torured and died. A dreadful time in world history. Pics are great - I like the tuk tuks. Glad you two are enjoying your travels.

Not sure about John wanting to take Jane up the Twin Towers - sounds a bit painful
Great stories, although the bar bit sounds hairy (!!!). Stay safe and looking forward to seeing you both soon.

Soooooooo jealous!!!!
Love reading about your travels. Keep up the good work. I am green with envy. We are already planning our next journey for 2015. Keep the blogs coming.

Reply to blog on KL
Gosh! It is exhausting just reading about your adventures. Can feel the heat and the humidity for real. Silly question when you are on a quest which has been planned for years, but do you miss home?

What a fabulous time you both are having. Loving the Tai Chi tale, think I would have just stayed in 'Above us' too ;) They sound like a great couple. Shame you have to move on.... lots of love Sam x x x x

It all sounds amazing (hard work in places) and John I love your rhetoric. Keep posting and love to you both. Linda and Chris xxxx

Another great account!
Love hearing all you are up to. Bit of a cliff hanger last time wondering about poor Jane so very relieved to know you are able to face the challenges still! Now sincerely hope you are actually "doing absolutely nothing for next couple of weeks". The most exciting thing we have in Devon at the moment is something called "sun"

Uk eat your hearts out!
You bring the smells heat dust colours and noise right to us! AND make us laugh! Brilliant descriptions. Add cows and dogs to the traffic in HCMC and that's KTM. So glad all well and you finally got out there - and already it's been a month. Would you credit it: Same 0 degs temps snow or rain and really cold in

Awesome review Hoggies
Thanks for the time you spend keeping us updated. I'm in Pattaya with Darian at the mo, so know what a mozzie attack can do, spent my first few days itching, but good old Deet has saved the days, and nights. Hope Jane better soon, I've had shingles once, not anything I would like again. Melodie

We will put it on our bicycles, that's sure!!!

Hey hoggies, thanks for the updates, I truly love them. So glad Jane has lost all her beach pebbles. Sounds wonderful from your fabulous descriptions. Love Melodie

What a wonderful time you are both having. Hope the shingles (where ever they were placed!!) has calmed down Jane..... John - you should write your autobiography - you are a brilliant scribe. Much love to you both xxxxx
25th February 2013

So sorry to hear that you have been suffering from shingles. How really nasty and to hold up your exit from these frozen shores as well!! Hope all is well by now and you are fully into your travels once again. Looking forward to hearing all your news. Take care you both and tons of love xxxx
