  1. Hi guys…tawny and ruby! Just listened (finally) to your last 2 podcast…sounds like you are having really cool fun. Not long till we see you in the flesh..can’t wait. Hope the exam goes well Shell. We love you xx

  2. How much does Baden like saying the word ‘Duoro’?
    I feel like we could play a drinking game where we drink every time he says it and we;d be battered 🙂

  3. I’m writing my book on the camino now; guys you have no idea what your friendship on this trip meant to me. Now I’m putting it to words and I notice………… it’s one of the best things ever happened this bikingtour to Santiago!

    • Oh Johann, you are the best!! You really made our camino special and we often think of you. We both say ‘grrreat eh’ about things all the time now, which we picked up from you.

      I bet you’re enjoying reliving your bike trip from those numerous journals you were scribbling in. What an adventure!
