Welcome to anyone checking back here, just using the site for

Our Site is
mainly for keeping you up to date on our Round the World Trip, so have a look at Maps, RTW
Trip for a map showing where we are off to, and we'll try and keep you informed of our activities in the
"Latest Stories" tab to your left.
Just noticed "Acknowledgement"page has dissappeared, will
correct and tidy up photos shortly as well as add more.
Here are also some links to older
photo albums that are already up on the web - Photo
So there we go! Enjoy!
