Our sympathy and condolences to John's family, friends and his fiancée.
It is really sad to hear the news that a fellow travelblogger (John Cullen) passed away in the Khao Sok caving disaster... please spare a thought for his fiance Helena and his family back home... very sad news
So sad to hear this - I hope that Helena is back with her family as soon as possible.
Really sad news. All my sympathy to Helena and both their families.
Thats really sad to hear, my heart goes out to Helena and johns familie
This is horribly sad news to hear. All my best to Helena and both families.
Such a tragic event to happen to all those who lost there life in those caves. My thoughts are with all and our fellow travelblogger John. I wish Helena safe return home to her family. And my sympathy to Johns family.
Deepest sympathy to John's family over such a waste of a good life, his spirit lives on in the rest of us as we think about him on our travels around the globe. Rest in peace mate.
Wow what a story, what bravery to try and get help at the risk of your own life. "Heroism is taking action in a dangerous situation, Bravery is taking action in a dangerous situation knowing full well the danger involved." John was one brave hero who tried to save the one he loved.
I was lucky to meet John & Helena and spend time with them during their travels. John was a great guy, a good laugh and had a caring nature and integrity. My thoughts are with Helena, who has shown immense bravery and dignity at this sad time, and their families and friends. John absolutely died a hero, because he wanted to save Helena and other people.
If anyone met John and Helena whilst they were traveling in Thailand and has any photographs of them please could you contact me via my blog page. Their camera was lost and so there are no photographs of their time traveling. We have manged to provide some and it has enabled his family to see how happy he was during his time traveling, but they only cover 2 weeks.
My name is Helena Carroll the sole surviour of the tragic accident in Koh Sok National Park.
I have just been reading this forum and amazed at all your comments.
I cant get over the amount of support all travelbloggers have given Johns family and myself.
Please take care on your travels
All the best
Helena Carroll and Val Cullen (Johns mother- The Ma)
Helena, I am so sorry for your loss. Having spent some time in Khao Sok myself and doing a similar trip to yours, you story touched me here in Australia (along with many others), and while I couldn't possibly imagine what you are going through, you were in my thoughts... I hope that you are ok.... take care of yourself. He was so brave.
