Behind in our travel updates

Since the last blog, we visited Tanzania and Kenya and we now have just finished a two week guided tour of  South of India.  We are leaving to Australia tomorrow afternoon Dec 20 and will arrive Dec 21 in the evening.  We are hoping to catch up on our homework (blog and picture upload) as soon as we get to Australia.  We have been gone more than 4 months, however it feels like a year.  Travelling is hard work!! So we are hoping to beach it and relax for the next couple of months.   Everyone has been pretty healthy.   We (except for Darren) all got  some kind of flu with a fever and  a sore throat for a couple of days in Africa and had to  take  some antibiotics to get rid of it. Today it is Darren’s turn,  he has a fever and  flu like symptoms.  I hope that he will be better for the long flight tomorrow.  Anyhow,  if we don’t get a chance to do our homework before Christmas, we wish everyone of you a Merry Christmas.

We miss you all but certainly not the cold.  Today in Cochin India 35c and very high humidity.

    Check on puter. Xmas in Sydney is a lot of fun. Also check for ocean danger. Sting-rays will kill you within 1 hour. On one coast sharks will come very close to shore ans snakes are venimous.
    17 more sleeps before I hold you in my arms. Can’t wait.


  2. Merry Christmas to you all,

    I’m now on Holiday for the next two weeks back to work Jan 04, than working for a week and off to Central America for 3 months. Francis might be coming over for a weeek in Roatan. There is a lot of snow on the ground here. Justin just finished off is 3rd year apprentiship, Dominic fell off a 22′ wall from one of our jobsite and received only minor injuries not even a broken bone. I think he had a guardian angel with him that day. Andrea is still doing great at UofC. Sonia is doing great as well, we are getting ready for Christmas, so overall it’s all good. Looking forward to see all of your pictures from Dubai, Africa and India. I still think this a phenomenal trip and that you guys are enjoying the world like that….. is unbelievable. Thank you for sharing and again Merry Christmas to my lil Sis, my Bros. In Law Darren, to my beautiful niece Jessica and my favorite world’s backpacker Drew. Enjoy and take care of each others.
