Hiya Seamus

Well wrap up warm till southern Iran!

If you are around India/Nepal in the first few months of the new year let me know cos i should still be there till about Feb/March time. Currently in Iran with a vague plan to be in india at Xmas, there maybe a travellers xmas beach party in Goa!

Have a good, safe trip which hopefully will not be to cold and wet at the start.

Hi Seamus.
Good luck and good roads to you on your trip.. When you arrive in NZ, look us up. We would love to hear your stories. Our plan is to do it the other way in a couple of years.

Regards

Nigel in NZ

Hi!
There is still someone coming after me? I wouldnt have believed it! I am in Esfahan at the moment, had some problems on the bike in Theran and after that an accident here in Esfahan, so iran is taking its time. But it seems you are quite fast, maybe you catch up, would be nice to meet. I am planning to take two more weeks for Iran, then about four Pakistan.
Keep in touch!
See you
jens
(Vincent is still in Iran, too, about 5 days ahead of me)
