Vår i sverige
Vi har haft några dagar med sol och värme i Uppsala. Vi kan ana att våren är påväg. Er reseberättelse är alltid lika rolig att läsa varje gång - gröna av avund blir vi dessutom. Vi tar vår tur 60+. Här hemma går renoveringen framåt. Nästa vecka får vi nya badrummet och tvättstugan kaklade. Snickaren har gjort ett mycket bra jobb. Just nu ser platsen där badkaret ska stå ut som ett kar där vi stampar vin! I helgen åker jag till Skellefteå. Erik ska påbörja sin helgkurs för att få förarintyg. Är ni friska nu? Kram till er båda. Ni finns i våra tankar alltid.

Ooh still jealous (except for the belly thing)
I love your story's (make me think back to our great time in Philipinnes). We have never been to that part of Malaysia so I'm really curiuos what you think of it. Do you guys also plan to visit Borneo? Joop and me are getting more serious about our emigration plans every day. We just found out that in april the Philipinnes are also planning to except foreigners to open their own business. In November we are either going to Thailand or the Philly's to look for a guesthouse to take over (or just land to built our thing). Back in Holland spring is starting and we have had a sunny week but it is still very cold (around 8-10C). Joop is really excited about going kitesurfing but he still has to wait a few weeks before the first shops open for lessons here in Holland . Enjoy and looking forward to reading your next adventures. Love and XXX Joop and Audrey

Hi Guys! Hows Malaysia for you? Hope Rainbow lodge is ok for you? What you been up too? We had an amazing time on the trek with Mr Good- thanks for your tips! We amazed ourselves by the cooking course too-but not sure we could repeat it! We cant belive the suite you got- it looked amazing. Well we have 9 days left so not long to go, enjoy the rest and keep in touch! xx

Always love reading your blog and looking at the lovely pics. Can't believe you're leaving Thailand now when I'm going there. Leaving for Phuket, Kata, on Tuesday night. Me Chris, Östling, Christian, Linda, Millan, Empa, Hjärner and loads more peeps are going. Most of Lindas family. Anyway, such a shame you won't be there. You'll have to give us some good tips on what to do though. Have a lovely time in Malaysia and take care! Miss you both! x x x

Saa herlig at dere ogsaa er ute og reiser! Det er flotte saker, det maa jeg si! Vi var ogsaa paa Koh Tao og Koh Pangan, det var utrolig snorkling og late dager, herlig sted! Droppa Ko Samui, men det ble mer beach i Sor ost asia, saa vi overlevde da det:) Naa koser vi oss i Guatemala, det er veldig anderledes enn Sor ost Asia, men fantastiske tider er det her ogsaa! Vi er saa heldige! Har kjopt billet hjem, lander i Norge 17 april, etter 14 maaneder paa loffen!! Veldig fornoyde med det:) Vi vaska dass i Australia, naer Darwin, stedet heter Jabiru, resorten heter Aurora Kakadu Logde, slaa det opp paa internet og ring sjefen, han heter Peter. Det er en dritt jobb, men vi fikk jobbe mange timer, vaska dass i 7 timer paa dagen, saa hadde vi en vaskejobb for et vaskefirma paa stedet ogsaa, der fikk vi betalt svart, saa det var bra, ogsaa fikk vi jobbe ekstra paa kveldene i baren eller restauranten, saa det ble mye penger paa 3 maaneder! Tjente 18 dollar i timen paa vanlig dag, 25 paa lordag og 30 paa sondag, og bodde billig, saa det var bra, bedre betalt enn mange jobber i Australia!! Er midt inne i Kakadu National Park i Northern Territory, veldig fint sted, men vi hadde ikke bil, saa fikk ikke sett saa mye. Jabiru er et lite drittsted, 1500 innbyggere, men det var gode penger, saa anbefaler det:) Eller provde vi oss som fruktplukkere paa Tasmania, men fikk sparken etter 4 dager, for fruktsesongen har vaert vanskelig detta aaret;) Tasmania var et konge sted, bortsett fra fruktplukkinga;) Vi brant oss forresten med skatten i Australia, man maa vaere der i 6 mnder eller mer for aa faa tilbake penger, og vi var bare 4, saa vi la igjen en del tusen kroner i skattepenger der ja.. Saann er det jo:) Lykke til med jobbing og reising! Vi folger dere fra bloggen:) Kos! Gunhild og Kristoffer:)

Åh, så många fina bilder och så roligt det är att följa er resa via bloggen. Önskar att jag kunde göra en liknande tur. Jag har just kommit hem från Wales, Cardiff. Det snöade mycket i engelska mått mätt, måndag tom onsdag och skolbarnen fick 3 dagar lov pga snöhinder!! - kanske också föräldrarna. I helgen har vi inget planerat. Det känns bra. Maja, du har fått brev från CSN som bekräftar det du redan vet. I dag har vi ätit en fisk thai soppa, vi tror att den smakade som något ni kan köpa och äta i ett gathörn där ni är. Ha en fortsatt trevlig resa. Vi saknar er mycket. Kram från Kristina

You will never forget the time and place Where you were engaged and Maja celebrated her birthday. The photograps are wonderful, it all looks very exotic and just makes you want to be there. I don,t know about the food though, Ithink I would starve. Miss you. Grandma
