Seems like little has changed since I went to the Seychelles about 20 years ago apart from the prices - it was a little expensive then but not on the scale you’ve been talking. Glad you enjoyed the Octopus curry. Pity they don’t have good mountain bikes in La Digue - we stayed on the island which was fantastic. Shame the shops were shut as I remember some great galleries and jewellery workshops - I have a painting of the coco de mer forest on our bedroom wall. Enjoy the rest of your trip and happy birthday to Cathy.

Merry Christmas from Shoebury!
Sounds like you're all having a wonderful time. For similarly obvious reasons we haven't sent you a Christmas card either, so here's wishing you all a joyful and not too hot Christmas!! See you next year xx

Hi Tracey Don't know what the issue with photos was but recent blogs seem to be Ok. Please look again. Glad you are enjoying the blogs. We're now gearing up for Christmas, and I will post an appropriate blog today. Steve

WOW indeed!
These look fantastic - how big were they? (tens of feet long, or just a few inches?).

Boats!
We’ve seen quite a few of New Zealand’s little ports and marinas so far, and they’re all crowded with smallish boats. Apparently there are more boats per capita in NZ than anywhere else in the world!

Hi I have now managed to read your posts from arrival in NZ and 2 after but the pictures from this blog (safe arrival in NZ haven’t come through. Enjoy and keep the blogs coming!

Washing
I expect the clothes are non iron. I must be good to just chill out and sleep in. Antigua looks great along with the weather

Non-iron?!
Pen, Our clothes would undoubtedly look better for ironing, but what the heck! They get crushed in suitcases anyway.

Another Exodus
Glad you’ve enjoyed yet another Exodus trip - sounds like it could be one for the list. Shame about the painful couple - you never know what you’re going to get but you’re lucky to escape without a couple of pains.

Final night of the Exodus tour
Thankfully the Final Group Dinner went off well - helped greatly by the failure to turn up of the objectionable couple mentioned by Steve. And the food was pretty good too.
4th November 2018

Food
Not much comments about the food so far. How are you getting on with all the different local food? Day of the dead looks amazing and makes Halloween look like a walk in the park. On that day I had Megan's name added to a list of recently departed at a service in St Lawrence's church. We have our bonfire night celebration tonight and weather good thank goodness. Keep up the blog - I look every morning.

Day of the dead
This looks like a really fascinating day, I remember you saying it was going to be be part of your itinerary. There was an article in the Guardian yesterday saying we don't discuss death or even recognise it as a possibility for ourselves! I think the Mexicans do it better. Enjoy the rest of your travels x

Keep them coming
I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying the travelblogs- I will compile & print for Jean for when I go in next week too. The trip sounds amazing.

Pah!
So there we were, strolling round the island, and we came upon a local braiding a girl’s hair. I looked interested, and she asked if I’d like mine done. ‘Not sure it would suit me’, I replied doubtfully. ‘Sure it would’, she said. ‘I’ve done four old ladies already today!’. !!!! Needless to say, my hair remains unbraided. Pah!

Fab day out!
So glorious to just hang in the water watching fish of every size, shape and colour darting about! And such wonderfully warm water, too.
17th October 2018

It’s not all about music!
The music was, of course, great. But they have loads of used bookstores over there too! The iconic Moe’s Bookstore was just a few doors away from Amoeba Records in Berkeley, and I had a whale of a time. Loads of students in Berkeley, of course, so lots of textbooks in there - but I’d travelled with a list books I wanted, and what I didn’t find in Moe’s I found elsewhere on the trip. Thank goodness I’d travelled out light!

Good to have you back. The Iguazu Falls really stood out for me. Looking forward to seeing your beads, Cathy. I love cable cars, looking forward to going up Table Mountain in one, Mara xx
17th May 2011

Over so soon!
I can't believe this is your last flight - the time has just disappeared! It's probably because we have been in a mad whirl as Gary is on a shift pattern and they only seem to be able to stick to the same pattern for about two weeks - two fed ups of Romiley. Big news is we've also decided to make it legal and get married next year(I know, about time I tried it) - cue visits to Mothers, visit from sister and venue viewing so the time has just gone. Catch up when you get back
17th May 2011

Wow Rio sounds wonderful - one for my list I think. I can't believe you are back already - that seems to have gone so quickly. Sounds like you had an amazing time though
15th May 2011

Hi Steve and Cathy, have a good and safe journey back. Iguaza Falls look amazing. Sounds like you're in a novel we'd all like to be in! Looking forward to seeing you and hearing all about it, Mara xx
