A new blog post is up.
This one is some writing from Mr alilou about what prompted us to begin this long journey. And some photographs from me - beautiful Italian pottery, Venetian Carnivale masks, and my strange fascination with laundry.

We met pingu in Milan
So much fun. Thank you for showing us around! Picture coming soon of me and pingu at the top of the duomo in Milan.
And I am so happy - we will be in a hotel that has Eurosport on TV for both TEB and COR I will be able to watch it all
I've said this before: You have a real gift for bringing your "adventures" to life.
Have you thought about submitting any of your posts/articles and photos to travel magazines?
I'll bet that you could cover at least part of your expenses - and travel more.
Thanks skatesindreams. Yes we have thought of that, and also of writing a book about our adventures. I imagine both will come, but it's early days yet. We'll just let it evolve with time.
Thanks again for sharing your journey with Alilou.
"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned / Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."
I'm enjoying your posts... at least when I find time to catch up on them.
Have you ever read "Tales of a Female Nomad" by Rita Golden Gelman? Mr alilou's post kinda reminded me of that book. If you haven't read it, I definitely recommend it. (that applies to anyone reading this thread, actually)
A new blog post is up - this one about Positano and the Amalfi Coast - another one of Italy's most beautiful places

Belle I had a quick look at Rita Gelman's website - what an amazing woman. Will def read her book - I bet we get inspired all over again.
Loved the latest installment, as always!
And give my love to Australia. I've lived in Canada 27 yrs and at times feel quite Canadian (esp when it comes to FS ) but I'll never stop being an Aussie.
I hope you're blogging about your trip. Will you post in SS? I'll look out for it. I'd put this in SS but I know there are FSUers who read it but don't have SS access.
Apart from GBR and Uluru where are you going?
ETA In Ayers Rock the flies really are as bad as anything you've read. Don't let them sell you any special creams etc to keep the flies away. They don't work. Just fork over the money for a netting for your hat. You'll need a hat but I imagine you know that. The netting will help you stay sane (no matter how hot it feels) esp if you plan to do any hiking around Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Without the netting (or endless applications of insect repellent) you will literally have flies on you all the time
ETA : from Mr alilou - re flies - and up your nose. And in your eyes.

And the latest post has been added to the blog.
This time it's about Rome, and pingu's city, Milan
We are currently in the south of Spain - I've been watching COR on TV in my hotel room even though it's sunny outside Some things are just more important.
Your pics of Milan are great! I don't think I've ever took photos of the city (just a few maybe), but it's nice to see it from an external [maybe outside is more correct?] point of view.
O course the best moment of the day for me was the hanging panties!
And the ice cream Since you left it has been quite cold so that has probably been my last 2011 ice cream!!
