I hope you will find it interesting. There are dolphins glowing in the dark, a country that no longer exists, train journeys through Africa, a yacht across the Atlantic, Caribbean Islands, ancient civilisations, and many, many interesting people.
Sitting on Maya before we left I heard 'Bohemian Rhapsody' for the first time. I thought the line 'Any way the wind blows' was an apt title.
All the people are real and all the events actually happened. In some cases I don't have the real names or the exact dates, but I have kept as close as memory allows. Feel free to share with anyone you think might find it interesting.
Charu - Hi Neil, what a great idea to blog your letters!!! terrific reading about your adventures hoping to browse through more of your posts, Charu
- Dad, I have finally finished reading. So sorry it took so long, but my own travels got in the way. It has been an absolute pleasure to read and I feel like I have learnt so much I never knew about my father!! If I got into half the situations you did whilst I was away, I think you would have stolen and burnt my passport so I could never leave the country again! Thank you for passing your desire to travel on to me, it has shaped who I am today and how wonderful a father you are. Lots of love, Tessa
