A journal entry from: Asia

I've just discovered the amazing footstops, and plan to set everything up so I can have details of my trip that begins by going to the airport on the night of the 19th of May!!

I will then fly to Bangkok via Singapore, where I will travel around South East Asia for the rest of the year.

I keep thinking of things I have to do, questions that I think need answers, things I still need to pack.  Then my mind slips to the amazing trip I am about to emark on...

It's great that you've got a good chick with you there too. Not much news from my end, but the search for our new pad in St Kilda has begun! Chat soon, Rach

Hello little cub, Don't know if this is going to work but here goes...just want you to know how excited I was to hear from you and to know you were ok - your friend sounds nice and I have a really good feeling about this trip. Guess what? Mum and Dad have some 'spare' money and want to buy me a new washing machine (yahhh). I'm going to see if this works - bye the way - I love you xxxxx Wombat

Hey mumma and rach! Yes, it worked really well, thanks for doing it!! I'm in Mandalay at the moment - so so hot. Me and gail just hired bicycles to get around town in, so it its going to be an adventure!! So far so good, the golden rock trek was a huge hike, so steep. Only 3 of us walked the whole way, the rest hired people to carry them in chair type things. I walked the whole way up! Then it started raining after we got to the top. It rained all night, and all the next day - so we had to walk down in the pouring and I mean pouring rain. Then we did some sightseeing in Bago, and yesterday we left at 6am to get a train to Mandalay. A 14 Hour train ride later, we arrived in Mandalay. We had Indian from a little food stall for dinner, and then went to bed. This morning we went on a nice boat cruise, very relaxing, but roastingly hot! Most of the group is fantastic though, and having a ball. Rpt to have Gail on the trip. Well, I hope I haven't waffled too much..... love you both xxxx

Mumma, you deserve a new washing machine for all you did fo them when you were in tassie. Very happy for you! Make sure you get a nice one - because my clothes and polar will need a HUGE wash when I get home...hehe. Having fun mum, being active, trying to not get burnt. Everything is so different here. The countryside we saw from the train was like asia 100 years ago, pretty amazing. There are stacks of Monks, which look fantastic, so we are all on the hunt to get the best Monk photo!! I'm missing your little voice heaps, but I'm safe, al the hotel are lovely, and I know I will speak to you soon. Please look aftr each other, and know I am loving you all of the time. Miss xxx will try and write again soon xxx

Hello little cub, so happy to hear that your experience in Burma is going so well...very proud of you and have been feeling very calm about not hearing from you which I have believed is due to the fact that you are having a good time and have a nice friend. Excellent work with the bikes, it is a bit scarey if you haven't been on them for a while but well done! About to start school holidays so expecting 30,000 through in next 2 weeks...Rach and I are both well as is all the fam. Love you so much Chels, please keep enjoying yourself and do not worry about us - this is the chance of a lifetime (and you will never be able to go again so make the most of it!! he he) Love and kisses. Da Mamma
