    Hi Pete and Michelle,
    You made it! I bet you have been partying hard since you landed.
    Sidney is supposed to be amazing, full of nice bars and restaurants, you will have to fed yourselves up before you head off to Asia and make the most of the home comforts as you really will be roughing.
    Post some photos ! Love to you both. Sheila

    David wishes you all the best and hopes to have a few beers with his mate soon.

    • Nice to hear from Liverpool – Let Me See Your Hands !!

    Well folks, Bowral isn’t quite the same without you!
    What a top weekend we had with you both. Very chilled, with good Scottish banter, and a few glasses of Australian wine thrown in and not to mention the several dozen bottles of German beer thrown in for good measure. Oh and don’t forget the game of cards but we’ll not go there shall we Pete ;). Woolworths would like to know when the two of you are coming back, just so that they know when to stock up the shelves!
    I really hope to come through to Sydney, and see you again before you leave for the next exciting part of your adventure!
    Love you both and keep the entries on your blog coming. It will keep us entertained and amused for months to come!!
    Take care
    Siobhannny xx

  8. Sheila says:

    Hi Pete and Michelle, checking your photos out and you look like you are all having a great time. When are you off to K Lumpa? it looks amazing! David is excited again as Jim is doing a small solo tour so has already booked his Liverpool tickets and is thinking where else he can go – you know him one is never enough so it is a good job you are away or he would be on the phone to you. We have David’s sixth birthday party in a couple of weeks time – football party will all his school friends. John is visiting us this bank holiday weekend, the boys have been to Anfield today to watch Liverpool V West Brom (1-0) and Jim is now on the TV! Speak to you soon. Love Sheila

    Me: Mufti Adil Fatwa

  15. Adil, of course we remember you ! You were a great help to us that night, and we still talk about you. Indonesia has been so great for us – the people are just so friendly. Thanks Adil.

    Keep in touch and good luck with your studies. We are in Bali now, and plan to be in Malaysia again, but who knows, we may just miss Bungus so much we will have to return ! πŸ™‚

Let us ken how yi are! Take care, Lyndon

    PS – WTF about the Tsunami by the way! Right next to Pandang….have you heard from Lisa? I hope she’s ok! Let me know

    • New Gushy piece added mate, on my new NB305 10″ notebook that weighs about nothing πŸ™‚ We are in Melaka and loving it, no bargaining, cheap as chips, and no bloody tourists – its sweltering heat out there.

      Lisa is fine, we txt her. we got a scare though until she got back to us 😦

      What about Mount Merapi ? You know that pretty uninspiring volcanoe we saw near Yogi ?

      Michelle says hi, and she is missing the Nr 1 “Cairds” player πŸ™‚

  18. Frances and Andy Austin says:

    Hello you two, its great to see you and you both look very well. I’m not a mega travelling fan but the locations you’re going to are like a dream so I suppose that would make it worth it. Look after yourselves and a pint of good old english lager will be waiting for you when you return plus the lobster dinner I promised you. Be safe and lots of love x

    • Nice to hear from ya’s !! I’m gonna hold you that beer, but I don’t eat fish, so Michelle gets a whole one to herself – right ? take care and have a nice Xmas.

  21. Lyndon says:

    Can i just say: I thought your posts on our last days together were good mate. I am sitting listening to trance music in a Thai bar on Koh Chang and people were looking at me because i was laughing so much!! It made me think of that time in Toba where i read your draft of a blog and you watched me read the whole thing….then you said…huh, you only laughed once. Well this time i laughed heartly. Made me miss you two! Quite simply you made my time in Indonesia the best and it can never be repeated – sorry that’s gushy and i said i wouldn’t do that but i have had far too much Chang beer! Take care my good friends. hope to see ou again very soon. Lyndon x

  24. Frances and Andy Austin says:

    I’m just thinking of you two as I sit here at work in the frozen north. I’ve been ill for the last 10 days so I’m feeling sorry for myself and I’m really tired after a very hard year. Anyway enough of my moaning its very boring. Wishing you two all the very best for Christmas. Hope you get lots of drinking time and the new year brings you good health and everything you wish for yourselves in the year to come. Lots of love and hope to see you soon Frances and Andy xxxx

  25. Vicky says:

    Hello you two!
    Am v impressed with all the places you have been, and some of the photos are quite stunning. And chuckling away as you meet all these new pals, is just typical of you two that when you go out even in Dundee you come home having made pals with at least two different nationalities. Am sure when you come back you will have enough stories to last a lifetime πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the postcard, think this may be the farthest we have ever received one from!
    So Merry Xmas from Charlie and I, sorry you are missing the White Christmas here. Three weeks of snow has made the festive season so much fun (not!)
    Have a great time and see you when you get back.

  26. Lorrain Ness says:

    Hi Michelle
    Good to hear from you, Glad your both still enjoying yourselves, l really enjoy your blog, have been googling all the exciting places youve been too ( sure beats working for the Council lol)
    Really pissed of with this snow now ( l should have said ice ) decked it a few times, enjoyed Christmas, Santa was really good, hope you enjoyed the festive period, looking forward to the New Year (good excuse to get pissed), All the Best for 2011, keep in touch xxxxxx

    • Weather sounds hellish…. It’s bloody roasting here but no complaints on that front. I have also decked it a few times here in Bangkok but only due to too much of the amber nectar!! Life is good. Check out Pete’s pics of BAGAN sure you will be impressed Lor.
      All the best for 2011 sweetie. Great to hear from you as always. Mx

  27. Sheila says:

  30. Alex & Marysia says:

    Hi you two,
    where are you right now? We are back in Germany and it’s so f******g cold here. We have got the flu and we are trying to come back into the European life style… Not really successfully, but we have no other option.
    We hope you two are still on this optimistic travel like we met you. It was a very great experience for us to see guys like you who make their dream come true in this way. While we were travelling on to Thailand, we spoke a lot about you. We really hope that we will see you in Australia and drink some beers again!
    After Vietnam we had a very fantastic time in the South of Thailand. It was very expensive but a nice vacation. We were on Koh Phi Phi Island and it was incredible.
    No culture but pretty cool nature and most likely one of the best spots in the world to get the holiday island flair πŸ™‚
    Ok we have to go out now and grab a little bit of fresh and cold air in the park.

    We wish you two all the best and good luck! Take care!
    Alex & Marysia

  31. Miss C Mills says:

    Hello our favourite 4 Buddhas from Saigon!

    Enjoying the cold? Ha ha… ha ha, ha, ha……… The beach in Hoi an is beautiful, the pretty beach traders all have the most perfect black teeth and we might even get to go back and spend a day or two before we gracefully glide over the border to meet you all in Lovely Laos.. That is of course dependent on the sun ever coming out and the temperature limping up to double figures.. brrrrrrr! Bloody brrrrr.
    Alcohol withdrawal complete!! And its happy hour in old faithful 2!! Yo guys!

  32. Lyndon Bruce says:

    Hello M and P. Just caught up on your blog there…..i too came away from Vietnam thinking it was awful, i would never choose to go back there. Seems like you have been having a braw time tho!
