Just a quick post to say Happy Xmas and a Happy New Year from the tropical island paradise of Koh Chang in the Gulf of Thailand.
Things just don't get better than this and I feel I am the luckiest man alive to be a able to be here. There are 7 other overland motorcylists here (Cliff & Jenny Batley, Ralph & Caroline, Peter & Carol and Kate), so we'll be having a 'small' celebration before hitting the surf. It's just a shame that the accomodation on the island is so full that we're getting booted out of our beach huts on Xmas day. Hammock on the beach anybody? And maybe then we'll find time to investigate the rather loud rattle that's emanating from the right hand cylinder head....
Anyway, I'd like to say a massive thankyou to everybody who has taken the time read the WebLog and to follow our exploits. It is so heartening and encouraging to read everybody's comments and receive emails from around the world.
And trust me, in the next update you'll see just how unexpected events can turn things inside out. "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans".
All the best for 2003 and Happy Xmas!Posted by Sean Kelly at December 23, 2002 02:18 PM GMT
