Hi Minxy nice to hear from you. Yes Europe is fantastic but extremely expensive for us South Africans. As you can see 144 for a beer. You and Johan are also doing out of this world trips. Keep going girl.

Schalk I started reading your thread about a week ago and I am blown away by your adventures.

If you head for Ireland and need a room and a meal for a few days my twin brother lives in Galway and would happily accommodate you mate.

Best Regards,
Andy

Schalk,
Great to meet you this morning in Hout Bay. Started looking through the book and it sure is inspirational. One thing which struck me on meeting you is just how alive you look. Great to see and it must be due to all the living you're doing. Great to chat to you and I look forward to the next book. Coffee on me next time..
Cheers.

Hi dustlover also great to have met you. I did not know that I am so well known that somebody would recognise me in a coffee shop. Yes I am very much alive and have got a lot of living still to do going around the world. Thanks for buying my book, it helps me to finance my trip.

Ja ek voel soms 'n bietjie soos Livingston wanneer ek deur Afrika reis en ek gaan deur 'n village waar die kinders van 17 jaar nog nooit 'n blanke gesien het nie.

Hi Chris it was also nice to meet you and the team at last. Hope the book will sell well. I still want to come and buy your Australian knife and a set of TCK 80 tyres before I ship my bike across to South America sometime  next year.
