    Must be a sign. Some people like that book, some don't. Rohr would probably say it's neither all good nor all bad. I met him once. A friend of mine is a good friend of his. Really interesting guy.

    Your blog is complete enough for me.
    I believe it will make a wonderful book, as the opportunity arrives.

    I'm having a great time following your "journey" and "discoveries", in every sense of those terms; wherever they lead you.
    "Travel" can mean many things!
    Yes, travel means so many things - we all travel, whether we leave home or not.
    Thank you so much for your encouragement and support I do still think a book will be birthed from the blog and our adventures, I just have to let it arise in its own time instead of trying to make things happen. I'm feeling much more peaceful.

    I had a look at his book on Amazon, read some quotes, reviews, etc. I think I might enjoy it very much, if only as a confirmation that we're already living what he writes about. I think so anyway.

    Love it. Thank you for so vividly articulating your personal journeys; your thoughts are truly inspirational.

    Thanks BittyBug. I always so much appreciate hearing when someone has connected with what I've written. It's a labor of love that's for sure. I can't not do it, but having it resonate for others is the icing on the cake. Thank you.

    Next blog post is ready - about our travels in Patagonia, a truly fabulous and special part of the world. The shrieking shack (with apologies to JK Rowling), oh and a few mountains and glaciers.

    You bring the "Patagonian Experience" vividly to life, in every way.

    Thanks sk8pics. It's such an amazing place. I could't believe the colour of some of the lakes - such intense blues.

    Thanks Buzz, my pleasure. Glad you enjoyed it. We were blown away (sometimes literally lol) by our whole Patagonia adventure.

    Thanks skatesindreams. It was a really special experience - there's so much in that part of the world that's really magnificent. We are very lucky to have been able to go there - I hope you enjoyed tagging along

    There are two new posts on the blog

    This Nomadic Life - A new found enthusiasm for life
    direct link: http://alisonanddon.wordpress.com/20...or-travelling/

    And the final post in the series about Patagonia, that amazing part of the world that is the very southern part of South America - use the sig line link as usual.

    We are now in the far north of Chile about to head into the Andes in Bolivia. The adventure continues . . . . . . .

    Your "horizons" are forever expanding!
    That seems especially true for Don.

    How amazing your adventure/narrative'photos of "the end of the world" are!

    Thanks skatesindreams. We've both opened up so much due to this ongoing journey, in so many ways.
    Patagonia was truly fabulous. I'm glad you enjoyed the descriptions/pics of our time there. It is a really special place for sure.

    It seems like it's been a while, but I finally have two new blog posts done.

    The first is a new This Nomadic Life post and is about a series of mishaps that we couldn't have dreamed up if we'd tried.
    direct link: http://alisonanddon.wordpress.com/20...rry-christmas/

    And there's a new travel post about our journey from Mendoza, Argentina across the Andes to Santiago, Chile and up the coast through the Atacama Desert to Antofagasta. The link in my sig line will get you there.

    Happy New Year everyone! We are celebrating in Cusco, Peru which is, according to two guys from Lima who we met today, the best place in Peru for bringing in the new year

    Happy New Year, ali! And thanks again for all the remarkable pictures and for sharing your journey with us. I smiled at your "let it go" comments.

    Best of 2014 to you and Don, Alilou.

    Your post made me laugh. It is hard not to get downright miserable when certain things go wrong at times, especially if one is uncomfortable or threatened in some way.

    Thanks skatesindreams. Yes, it pretty much fascinates us too every now and then we wonder what on earth we're doing, but there's nothing else that really resonates for us so we just keep moving forward. Sometimes it's fascinating and exciting and awe inspiring, and sometimes we get weary, or things go "wrong" just like ordinary life - like yesterday when I got a lunchtime dose of food poisoning so spent NYE very closet to the potty So much for going out celebrating.

    Thanks so much, and Happy new year to you too sk8pics. Life, it seems, keeps challenging us with all our attachments so it's either let go or suffer

    Oh I'm so glad it made you laugh. That's what I was hoping for. It was such a ridiculous unexpected string of events, just one after the other, that laughing was the only option really, though I had trouble doing that when I thought there was something wrong with my laptop. Thank goodness we figured out fairly quickly what it was.
    Hope 2014 is spectacular for you and Mr Japanfan. See you in March!

    Once again there are new posts on the blog.

    The first gives a link to an interview we gave on another travel blog - about our nomadic life
    http://alisonanddon.wordpress.com/20...her-interview/

    The second is about our 4x4 overland journey through the incredibly beautiful high desert of Bolivia
    http://alisonanddon.wordpress.com/20...no-of-bolivia/
    (or use the link in my sig line)

    It was only a three day journey but definitely one of the highlights of our time in South America. Scenery to make your heart melt
