Hi Ken,I just found your web site while doing last minute research for a month-long trip to Croatia that begins tomorrow. Very nice web site. I'll be checking your progress as an around-the-world trip is something I have always wanted to do. I wish I was going to be home when you visit NY city. I don't live far from there and would love to say hi in person but, unfortunately, I'll be in Croatia at that time.I hope you have a wonderful year!Ciaio,Ginia

Thanks for leaving your message and have a great time in Croatia. I have yet to plan the final section of my trip after Moscow but would like to take in some of the parts of Europe that have changed so dramatically in the last decade or so. Let me know if you have any particular advice from your visit. Peter Moore passed through this area as part of the journey documented in "The Wrong Way Home", and its an enjoyable read. Also a shame you will not be around the NY area when I am there. Always great to have someone local to point out the good stuff outside the normal tourist haunts.

Ruddy Nora, What an enviable year you've got ahead of you! I'm going to be in Oz from mid Nov to Mid Dec, in Byron Bay. Don't know how you can get hold of me (have to set up a hotmail..). Well HAVE to hookl-up if your in the area (NSW/Queensland border). Here's hoping...... In the meantime, all the best dude.

Good to hear from you mate. I should be in the the Sydney area from the start of Dec. I've yet to plan my Oz adventures except doing Chrimbo & New Year in Sydney. I'll see if I can head north before then to hook up with you.

Hi KenJust seen your entry on "Friends Reunited", which took me here. Have fun on the trip. Are you going to be seeing any of the old MSEng crowd while you're at it? And do you know what happened to Kapak?!

Glad you found me....I'm off to Andy's wedding on the 6th Sept and should also catch up with Seth Sowerby and Alan Murray there. I hope to then catch up with Seth, Al and Derek Gladding when I am in San Francisco.I have no idea what has happened to Rob. Anyone else have any ideas???

Cheers for having a nose around the site. With Glastonbury and then having my wisdom teeth out I have been kept quite occupied. I hope all is well back at Holford.

Hi Ken,If you had put your mobile number on your website, I could call you to let you know I dropped my phone, so I couldn't call you to arrange to meet up today. Heading off to the Church now, hopefully I'll see you there ...Oh yeah - Enjoy your circum-navigation of the world's ale houses. I look forward to the edited highlights !- Steve.
Admin Reply:
Sorry I didn't catch up with you. Andy P did track me down to the Backpackers afterwards. Didn't realise about your phone and was trying to get hold of you on it. See you next time I am in the Village.

Have a Good 1 Big Maan.I'll definitely be looking in on the site to catch up on your progress and using this 2 fuel the dream of my own 'sabattical' next yr - 3 weeks in Western States on MCycle (what else - it's a disease without a cure I guess)-result of reading Zen & the Art.... again recently.Have passed the weblink to Tessa (back with us 4 the summer vac.) - hope U don't mind - might give them some insight into longer distance travel - they only managed as far as southern Spain in 3weeks last year - stuff got knicked (bummer)
Admin Reply:
No worries about passing the link on. I hope everyone does it if they know someone who might be interested. You might like a book called "Good Vibrations"....

Look forward to catching up with you in San Francisco. Will probably come and join you if you are in New Orleans for a day or two... Could be a laugh! Let me know nearer the time.
Admin Reply:
Think I will only be in New Orleans for one night so may be tricky to catch you there. See you in San Francisco....

I'd offer to meet up with you, but the chances are the country would be closed for refurbishment when you got there !!!!!!!!!(Have you checked the opening times of Solihull for the 19th???)
