Didn't look like a Police car until you spotted the 4 aerials on the roof, and the blue lights started flashing....

agog
I have just read a batch of your blogs all at once. Crikey o riley. I am completely exhausted just imagining it all. Someone should definitely make a film of your trip.... xx

Holy smoke you are RIGHT, what a country.
I am so delighted - as, I'm sure, are your family - that you're somewhere so safe and normal... after all, what's a cyclone, landslips, raging floods and a 6.8 earthquake for anyone who caught the very last flight out of Ecuador? I LIKE the sound of those electric bikes but will put no money at ALL on Pete getting one. Until he's 95 at least. Very big hugs to you both and an EXTRA SPECIALLY HUGE one for Jamie Lowe! xxx

Pie! Tell us about the pie!
Glad you are both safe from cyclones and earthquakes, and did not attempt a canoe voyage down the raging torrent! Loved the pies in NZ, amazing range of yum options. Good pie shop in Rotorua, what sort of pie was it Pete?

only my 3rd attempt to leave a comment...
Have you arrived, or are you in Australia having been beaten back by the waves over Auckland airport? perhaps still on a plane 5 days later? Maybe still in immigration with a mud-flecked tent peg? wherever you are I hope ti's dry, and that Notso made it through with all his important bits. xx

So good to hear from you again
Hi Jan and Pete What a great surprise hearing from you again. And New Zealand - so lovely. When we traveled there 25 years ago with our 6 year old daughter Anna for half a year with a tent in an old Mazda, we said to each other that if we ever had to emigrate, New Zealand would be the place to go. So relaxed and welcoming people and such a beautiful country. Only good memories from that trip. Especially the Tongariro Crossing stands back as one of the most stunning experiences of my whole life. So: we wish you all the best and are seeing foreword to learn more about your experiences. Ellen and Jens

Mange Tout et Bonnet de Douche
Hope the floods have receded and that you are soon paddling. I've a cousin in Hawera who I am sure would wring you out if the weather stays challenging. Take care and enjoy ! L&A x

Wow - amazing job well done!!
So glad to hear you made it home - what a close shave. You do like to have a thrill when away don't you. Completing on our Devon purchase on Tues. Teleconference with Tom's employers this am to discuss the near death experience at training (been off 2/12 with PTSD). Busy times for all. Love to you both N&T xx

Someone was looking out for you
Goodness talk about serendipity - if you hadn't lost your key you wouldn't have spoken to the landlord and you would indeed have been in Baeza for the next few months. What an incredible ending to a wonderful trip. Coming back with a sack of Ecuadorian lentils and pasta, and an unexpected love of the French, has to be a bonus. I just hope you turned all the lights off as you left... Good to have you home! x
