 Special Thanks

Of course a special thanks goes to our families for their support and understanding. For putting up with those long telephone conversations and those sleepless nights in front of the computer. For supplying endless cups of tea and coffee as we prepared for this trip.
Not forgetting, Alex for setting up and maintaining the website. You can email him at

Finally a special thanks to Aidan and Mandy for pointing out all those horrible spelling mistakes.
