Hope you had a great time in SL
Its fun to read ur blog. Very descriptive. I usually do not subscribe to a blog but yours looked interesting. I wanted to hear what actually a non Sri Lankans experience in Sri Lanka was. Its quite entertaining. Its nice that you have traveled to so many countries. I wish I could join a volunteer association and travel around the world helping locals. Hope you could visit Sri Lanka again. NOTE:- I think the reason the village kids were mischievous bcoz they were too exited to see white people teaching them english not becuase of any disrespect. Thats what the village kids do to get your attentionl they want you to notice them. When they are mischievous it means that they like you. If not they would just sit around quietly and do nothing.

Hello from Katy
Hello Kirstie My name is Katy and I am 24 years old and live in the UK. It sounds like you're having a fantastic time in New Zealand! It must be great fun travelling somewhere new everyday. I am hoping to go travelling in New Zealand by myself in September for 3 months and I wanted to know how you're finding it as a lone female traveller? This will be the first time I've ever travelled abroad completely by myself so it would be great to have your input! I am planning on staying in hostels mostly, so hopefully I'll meet some fellow travellers along the way that I can tag along with from time to time. I am really looking forward to it - your photos are fab, I can't believe how beautiful the scenary is! It looks like you had great fun skydiving, it looks so exhilarating. I'd love to have a go, but I don't think I'd be brave enough. I bet you had such amazing views...a birds eye view of the country! Looking forward to hearing about more of your excellent adventures! Take care of yourself, Katy :o)

seeing granfer in perth
Hi girls.. thank you for the photo text to my mobile. i didnt think about it until aunty jo said that you had done it , i did think it was advanced for my dad as i had only just showed him a basic text before he left. Sounds like you had a nice but hectic day. why were you girls not wearing hats... lol xx i think tony and louise are going to meet up with you and granfer on saturday too. he is uncle bobs brother and they just got married last week. my dad took us down London street too in the centre and around kings park in 1986. dont do what bob did if you go on a wine cruise... he still cant remeber that day.... (drunk doesnt even cover it) have you fed any kangaroos yet? we have a lovely picture of emma aged 2 1/2 feeding rice crispies to one in a wildlife park. well keep up the good work as all your organisation seems to be paying off and i think you have done so well and so much.. take care thinking of you love from aunty julie and all xx

new year
Hi to all, who is driving the camper car? it sounds fab for travelling around the east coast. there are lots of places to pull into if i remember from my dad travelling along there by bus. some of the scenery will be stunning. so you will be heading to the great barrier reef then? the australian "blackpool". lol yes we had a good new year. uncle bob is still home and em had her school friends here on new years eve and we all went out into the street with saucepans at midnight to see the neighbours. there were fireworks too but not as many as you saw. pictures look good. all your hard work planning before you left has paid off as you seem to be on the ball.... continue having a great time take care love to you both.. x nat and emma went back today so house quiet now.. xx night nightxxx

Thanks for getting in contact. It has been an amazing trip so far and we've found it to be even better when you get to know the locals! I have emailed Jane a few times on her school email but it was after school had broken up so she may not have gotten them yet! Looking forward to travelling up the east coast with the locals on Monday. Hope the new year is good for you and the new term. Kirstie

Happy Christmas!
Hi Kirstie, have really enjoyed reading your blogs, very descriptive and informative - although some sound a bit jungle challenges in 'I'm a Celebrity'! Assume you are safely arrived in Sydney now, which is a fun place. Christmas Day is probably almost over there, we're just having breakfast - thinking of you, do look after yourself. Lots of love, Tino and Veronica xx

Merry Christmas
Dear Kirstie and Kim, Mandy told us you had a blog so I thought I'd take the oportunity to say hi and wish you a very merry christmas. We've just broken up from school and I really wish I was in Thailand which would be a lot warmer. Jane's just popped in and says that over Christmas she will get a time slot to say hi as well. Enjoy the trip - I'm jealous! Happy new year Pauline

I'm enjoying it at the moment, although I have recently experienced some bed bugs, not nice! Luckily were moving to a different place, hopefully with no bugs. Hope your all ok. Kirstie
