Hiya guys--just a short note to say our long awaited holiday(waited 10 years) is about to begin.Jen and I are off on a 5 week adventure on our touring motorcycle from Adelaide in South Australia via Melbourne/Sydney/Brisbane then home again.
It is now 3 weeks since I finished my chemo and am gradually regaining my strenght so am looking fward to getting "away from it all".
For those who mail me please refrain from any mail sending after 11th march.
We will have you all in our thoughts while travelling and hopefully I can return here a little more settled in my mind and with more energy!
Our most sincere love and hugs to all of you--my family was never intended to be so large!
May you all stay as healthy as possible!
cheers kanga and Jen

    Have a wonderful and restful trip. I too took a 5 week vacation after my chemo last July. Went up in the mountains of New Mexico and just relaxed and enjoyed nature and recovered. My best to you both. Enjoy and you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    Kanga -

    I know you'll be excited (having waited so long for your trip) and you'll be smiling ear to ear - just try to keep the bugs out of your teeth, mate!
