As always there are so many people, without whom, some of the most fantastic moments of my life would never have occurred. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank them (and you too Mum!)
Firstly, my partner Alie, who not only built this website and encouraged me to blog, but is so understanding in letting me just get out there on my own and explore. My manager at work at that point in time who said yes to my annual leave request. Dave and Christine, my next door neighbours, who very kindly look after the cats and the house whilst I am away.
The many bus drivers, taxis drivers and train attendants of the world I have encountered who have in some way assisted me in getting to the right place. The many hotel owners who have given me a room for the night. The restaurant owners who have supplied me with all varieties of food and drink.
And those people who have just been in the right place at the right time to make for a very magic moment. If you read the blogs you will discover who the latter are.
