      Rub Mitzi’s ears for me, love and hugs to you both, say hi to all.

  8. Hi Diane and Andrew,

    It’s Neil and Janet. We met you at a gas stop just south of Carmel in CA this past Sunday. Neil was able to find your blog, as we were so impressed with your travels! We would love to keep in touch, as we enjoyed our short, but interesting conversation! We will follow you on your blog, but would love to hear back from you! Safe travels! We hope that you enjoyed San Francisco and were able to get to Alcatraz!

    • Hi both,
      how very nice to hear from you! I’m very pleased that you were able to find us.
      Thank you for your appreciation of our little blog site.
      Yes we did make it to ‘The Rock’, very worth while visit, spent half a day there, loved it!
      We managed to get into town for a day and enjoyed the sights.
      Yes keep in touch and maybe see you on the road.

      • So great to hear back from you! We hope that your continued travels are going well! If you ever make it down to San Diego, please let us know! Lots of nice things to see and do down here! Take care, and safe travels! We’ll continue to follow you on your blog!

        Neil and Janet

      • Hi guys, we made it to our winter stop over in Canada on Wednesday 28!! Great scenery, cold, bit wet & snow to come…. Will be able to update our diary here, good internet. Enjoy your warm winter. best regards, Andrew

  9. Hello A & D from Houston! We’re still talking about your visit to the BMW Motorcycle Club of Houston while you were staying with Ron Richards. Your visit, photos and chat with us was terrific. Some of us will watch your progress here with great interest, thinking maybe someday we’ll follow in some of your footsteps. Safe travels!

    • Hi Dick, one and all,
      It was a pleasure meet you all and I’m stoked that you enjoyed our chat, (talk). We are heading to Oklahoma on the 21st to follow 66. would be great to ride with those that can spare the time!!
      Best regards to all.
      Ride safe

  11. Hi Diane and Andrew,

    Fun to see the blog of your travels. We’d love to talk to you about visiting our place when you are in Northern California! Thanks for writing to us.

    Daisy and A Madrone Ranch in California

  12. Hi guys…Thankyou once again for the number-plates you have sent to us over the past four years. Both Melony and I miss the two of you. Hope to see you one day soon Keep sending the plates….they are up in our kitchen. LOVE Dale, Melony and the girls.

    • Hi both, nice to hear from you! Keeping our eyes open for your plates in South America, hope the different Australian state plates made a worthwhile addition. Will visit for sure when were next in Cape Town!
      Love and hugs from us both

      • Hi Both where are you. Have been thinking about you and hoping you are safe and having a great time Chris and Jon xxxx

      • Hi to you both too!
        We crossed the Darian Gap (bikes by water, us by air) and all were re-united last Tuesday. Took a mere ten hours with customs, started our day at half four and put the tent up at nine that night in a tiny, quiet village an hour & a half out of Panama. till July 11 or 12 we are looking after a backpackers in Arenosa, on lake Gutan. Mangos and Avocado trees all around, hanging with fruit… Heaven! Just this morning discovered Skype calling so will try you soon. xxxx

  13. Thank you.yes everything is as it is. The fig is believed as the symbol of Gondar twon it is very old tree.I will send you the picture if I can borrow camera from some one.

    It is to say non governmental organization that I want to work as a social worker.
    Do you think andrew! Africa is beautiful only for visiting for me it is difficult to compare it with Australia. I would love to work and live there, if got the chance and help from some one.

    The summer is coming here it is colder and nice weather everything is green.

    • That would be good if you have time to take a photograph, we would be able to put it in the picture gallery of Ethiopia.
      Once you have finished your studies you could apply to the Australian Government for a working visa. You may have to get your qualifications recognised here. I think an Australian resident could sponsor you, but they have to be family…
      It is a lot cooler here to which is easier for riding, when we get the chance!
      best regards, Andrew

  14. Thank you .Yes I’m in Gondar and I have one year more to finish my social work(MSW) study then I will try to work for NGO’s if I can get a are in australia that is nice.

    • Hi Belay, does Gondar still have the wonderful market in the centre of town? I remember the huge fig tree on the circle near the castle. I was so impressed by it I failed to take a picture of it!!
      Forgive my ignorance but the abbreviations I don’t understand. What work do you hope to be doing once you finish your studies?
      Australia is nice, we are in the north of the state and even though its heading for autumn its is still thirty five degrees in the day. We will really feel the cold when we move on, which we both want to do now. Australia is a lovely place but not as attractive as Africa in our eyes. We hope you had an enjoyable Easter.
      All the best, Andrew

    • Hello Belay, lovely to hear from you again.
      Wonderful that you are well, are you still at study in Gondor?
      We are still in western australia, working for the moment.
      I’m at work now and will write more over the weekend.
      best regards Andrew and Diane

  15. Hi Diane and Andrew!!

  21. Hi Andy & Diane, Thanks for this – We’ll find time in the coming days / weeks to have a better look at this, but for now send our Best Wishes. All’s well here. Jen is about to move house to another, better one, close by her present one in Credenhill. So we’ve been helping her and Kath with their various issues. Karen continues to paint and is doing really rather well at it, and maybe turning a corner a bit to give a small commercial flavour to a few pieces.
    Best Wishes, Chris & Karen.
