Vincent,

We'll just think of your trip as being 'temporarily' stopped - a rest and some income, and I'll bet you hit the road again.



All the best, and we're very pleased to have been a part of your journey.

Definitely see you in Paris one day!

Grant and Susan

don't forget to send us something for the ezine!

We never did meet up on the road but your name is so familiar from the website we feel like we know you. Sorry to hear that you are out of both motivation and money. Know exactly what you are talking about but after a while at home am sure they will both return and you will be back on the road again. . . one way or another.
Good luck, Cheryl and David.

Hi Vincent, like Cheryl and Dave I never met you on the road (though you left a note on my bike at the Saturday night market in Goa) but have followed your progress with interest.

I have no doubt your motivation will come back (mine has, having been back in London for only 3 months) and you'll be on the road again soon.

Look me up if you're in London,

Pete

Yes mate, that was my Twin.

Currently saving for Americas trip hoping to head off Apr/May 2006 (which seems a hell of a long way away!)

Maybe catch you there...
