Hi Ralph,
I guess Belinda has made a full recovery by now?
Here's hoping.

So, I know you probably still have the ambition for a bit of an intercontinental travel, it's in you, sure it is.
But what now?
you simply can't just leave the Disc and not think about some decent travel?
Will you be planning again?

All the best,

Thanks for the good wishes.

We had rescheduled, with Peter, to do the same Morocco trip in October but Belinda is still not fully recovered and it would be wromg to try a trip like that without being 100%.

So we have postponed Morocco indefinately. At some point my brother and his wife will go again and we will plan to go then. It could be a few years away but we will make it. After all the initial plan was for us to do the trip together in 2009 and Morocco will still be there in a few years.

However you are right about the need for a trip. I don't know what I would do without a countdown clock ticking away the seconds to another journey. So we have decided to go in the opposite direction.

Next June we spend 3 weeks driving through Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway into the Arctic Cricle to see the Midnight Sun at the northernmost point on the summer solstice.

Once again we will be travelling with Peter and our friends Nick and Karen. It will be a very different experience and we are looking forward to it.

So its out with the suncream and shortsleeve shirts and in with the thermals

Only 287 days, 21 hours, 58 mins, 52 seconds to go.........but whose counting

Thanks for the offer but next year is too early for my brother and his wife to return to Morocco.
We have realised that the point of the trip was for us to do it together and so we will wait unitl that's possible. Morocco will always be there.

On top of that the deposit has now been paid for the Arctic Circle trip.

Only 294 days to the solstaice when we will be 'on top of the woooorrrld'

Okay not quite the top but you know what I mean.

Morocoo will probably be in 2015

Hi Ralph,

This is slightly off topic but I was reading your overland-rovers pages and was wondering how your replacement Landy Ltd engine was going? How many miles do you have on it now?
