Hi Ken,I really like the chevrons down your cheeks! They look really groovy. Hope they don't wash off! By they way did you know you have some fluff stuck to your chin! Seriously though it looks much better than mine did when I tried it. You really look like a traveller now.The Thai beaches sound fantastic, I like the sound of the one that you reach by boat and then just have to chill out at a bar over-looking the water. My idea of heaven.Just been to Warwick Races for the day with Emily, William, Karen and Chris. Karen is minted now after backing 3 winners! In the future I will just follow Karen's advice and forget the Times pundit.Glad to read you are still having a great time. The photos are ace and it is great to read your updates.See ya

Kate, thanks for the comments and news from home. The trip has been both fun and educational; do your trip & enjoy it a lot.I meet people in most places I go (actually, I usually meet people on the transport between places). Some you hang with for a day or so, some longer, some you meet in several places or countries.Cheers for looking after the flat with Ad & I promise to cook up some Thai when I get back. Prepare your tongue for some very tasty chilli action.

Kenny lad ...........Stop getting so pissed up that you can't fire some chat into foreign members of the opposite sex.I'll be drinking Pimms at Glastonbury and thinking of you on the Tuesday.Thursday onwards its dirty Perry Cider all the way ! 😛
Admin Reply:
Deaks you jammy git. One of my few regrets about this trip is missing Glastonbury. Get you act together for buying tickets on the 1st April and have a great time. I'll be missing the Perry but Thailand's Chang beer is as destructive, if less pleasant.On the ladies front I have been chatting with those I meet however out here in Asia :(1) the local ladies who will chat to you will be looking for payment at the end(2) There are fewer single female travellers out here than couples and blokes....

And so, the intrepid adventurer fights his way through the undergrowth, disappearing into the wilds, off to live the life of a wise, travelling hermit, never to be seen again... well, maybe if you look for some place that serves a decent pint you might find him...Sounds like things are going pretty well. Have fun and be careful out there. We do want you back, you know...
Admin Reply:
Not that a decent pint narrows things down much in Laos as everywhere serves Beer Lao. Its a nice refreshing pint, however I'm sure its alchohol content varies from batch to batch.

Hey Ken,Well I dig the site - I was in the UK last night having a curry (what else!) with Andy W and your travels came up. It is looking good and I am amazed at all these old names who are popping up from the past - Raglan and Nick escaping is wonderful... Glad to see you are having fun. Say hello to the Trans-Sib when you get there it is bloody marvellous (see my site) and if you fancy a stop in the South of France when overlanding Moscow to UK, do drop in! All the best mate - Enjoy.....
Admin Reply:
Cheers for the site complement and I am pleased at the names that pop up on here. Its good to hear from people back home. Looking forward to the Trans-Siberian but the Russian visa looks like being a real pain.

Hi Ken!Merry Xmas and A happy New Year. Just thought we should catch up since we haven't communicated since Toronto. Looks like you're having the time of your life. Wish we could meet you in Thailand b/c we need to get the hell out of the cold (average temp for the last week -20), but we are kept warm with the thoughts of our new house. We'll keep checking the site for updates and more pictures, don't you look handsome with a beard. How did the tampons work out for ya?!? But DUDE, WHERES THE TAN???? Jim & Cari
Admin Reply:
Things are getting very warm now I am heading south again and the trip has been both fun and interesting. What new house, email me with some details.I finally tracked down all Cari's little presents she scattered through my luggage before anyone else did. As for the tan its getting stronger but (a) I'm Scottish & unlikely to get very dark and (b) its a T-shirt tan as you are expected to wear at least a sleeved T-shirt in SE Asia.

Hi Ken!We're in Sydney for New Year and if you're still about it would be great to meet up. We're staying at the Grace Hotel in York St. I don't know what the plan should be yet (going to see if I can get tips about where to see the fireworks from the hotel staff), but we'll be there or there abouts tomorrow - along with about half a million others!!Hope to see you,Richard & Malene
Malene & Richard Malene & Richard from Cairns wrote on 2003-12-28 at 10:44 am
Hi Ken,We arrived in Sydney all right on around 15th December. I (Malene) had the mishap of being taken ill there, nothing serious it turned out but I was scared shitless. I will tell you more about that. I still bare the scars to prove it! We are coming to Sydney again on 30th December and are currently in Cairns having covered 2800 km in a car from Sydney which we will tell you about. We are staying in the Grace Hotel in York Street in Sydney City centre. Let us know where we can get hold of of you so we can meet up. Neither of us knew it was your birthday on 18th but thank God for your guestbook!Malene & Richard

Ken, Hope U enjoyed Xmas down under. My mate in Melbourne has filled me in previously & it doesn't sound much like the goings on in Blighty @ this time of yr - Xmas dinner on the beach, etc.My folks succumbed to some fairly heavy hints in Waterstones before Xmas & bought me 2 books U recommended - 'Good Vibrations' and compendium of Bill Bryson 'travelogues'. Only just started, but looking good. Thanks for the tip.Currently finishing off M.M's 'Stupid White Men' which is good, so 'Dude...' is up after that.Have an eventful 2004!!.Cheers. Mark.
