Firstly, check out the pictures we have just posted on the US and Canada updates.

All good things must come to an end: 27 flights down, two to go as we head back to Blighty tomorrow. We hope you have enjoyed reading these updates as much as we have living them. Can't believe its been a year - guess all that's left for us to do is to torture all of you with our holiday snaps when we get home - be scared, be very very scared!

Incredible to think of the things we have done in a year - just to remind y'all, here are a few of the high/low lights:

Being chased by wild elephants in Nepal

Sitting on the Rongbuk glacier watching the sun down on N face of Everest.

Walking east down the valley between Cholatse and Lobuche in the Khumbu region of Nepal.

The toilets in the Snow Leopard Lodge in New Tingri, Tibet

The really cool dive trip to the Similans

Watching dolphins play in the bow wave on the Whale Watching trip in Kaikora, New Zealand.

Climbing the Minarets in the Southern Alps (Nick Only)

Falling in various bits on the Franz Josef Glacier in NZ (Mandy only)

The hangover after the climbing trip

The beaches of Abel Tasman

Swimming with seals in Abel Tasman

Walking the Tongariro Crossing.

Torrential rain in the Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Playing with the farm animals at Myella (!).

Diving with the giant cod on the Great Barrier Reef

The endless roads of the outback

The ancient sandstone of Ayers Rock, The Olgas and the McDonnell ranges

Camel riding (+ bonding - Mandy only)

The stunning views from Ubirr in Kakadu NP (+the stunning mozzies)

Diving with mantas in Hawaii

Bryce and Zion canyons in Utah

Seeing the Grizzlie in Banff NP

Watching the orcas in Johnstone Strait.


All in all, not a half bad way to spend a year. Now for 2003/4....

Cheers

Mandy and Nick

(PS buying us beer would be a good way to divert attention from the five hour long slide show we are compiling.....)
