The holy-shit-we’re-almost-home edition.

Sorry everybody. Not only am I fucking exhausted after spending 12 hours in shit airports and even shitter airplanes, but I am also kind of drunk after skulling four cans of Carlsberg to celebrate the last night of what has been a truly amazing trip.
So rather than attempt to sum up the last 868 days in any meaningful kind of way, I’m going the easy way out and working the ‘a-picture-speaks-a-thousand-words’ option.
Once again, a big loved up thank you to all our friends along the way- from road-tripping Argentinean buddies to San Ignacio fiesta compadres; from coco-loco sipping Scrabble players to late night shit-talkers in Popayan; from our rum-drinking piratey shipmates and lao-lao drinking, kayaking Swiss friends to the surprise New Years San Fran team…to Peter & Leontien who are such fab mid-trip meet-up friends and interested rum-factory-tour-members.
You guys (and many others) made our trip extra special and we hope to see you again somewhere. Happy travels wherever you are and you are always welcome in Melbourne!!!
