We have been jetting our way around the world, recently returning to Scotland for a Wedding, of John, Marks Brother, and his blushing bride, Nicole. We had an awesome time with friends and family, hanging out in our thermal shirts, and visiting castles and searching for Nessie in the Lochs.

So good to see everyone again, visitied Craig, my brother and his family in England and did a whirlwind tour of London with my Mum, going to the theatre to see Lion King, scampering on and off double decker buses and the underground, Taking in the sights on th London Eye, and visiting Uncle Norm and Aunty Betty. All in 24 hours!

Now back at home and busy storing up for a trip back to Aceh, and the uninhabited islands and the surf. Having a wee catch up on the computer before we go, and promise to keep you updated with our adventures. Cheers,, Rachel

Off to Indonesia...again.

A quick wee note to say...YIPEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! We are stocked and ready for new adventures.

Heading back to Aceh, fridge full of chese, and cupboards full of beer. Will be great to go back, as now aware of the spots we want to hang in for a while.....our secret uninhabited island, with the clearest blue water, mating turtles and coral reefs...not to mention an OK surf break, but shhhhh, I cant give too much away, or there will be a resort there next year!

How lucky we are never ceases to amaze me.

In the past month we returned to Scotland where Marks brother, John, married my new sister in law, Nicole.

It was an awesome time, with the most special thing not the castles and the ice shkating, but just hanging out with family, and catching up with everyone.

We had to relearn how to put on socks and shoes, and also did a little bit of soul searching as to the realities of returning to Scotland for the kids high school, and whether we really could do it! Seeing how short some of the high school girls skirts are, Im quiet happy to continue to home school!!

Also we caught up with my brother Craig and my Mum, Wendy, and nephews Jake and Leroy. Mum took us on a whirl wind tour of London including The Lion King, Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, Double Decker Buses, The 24 hours!

Anyhow, we continue to inform you all of our adventures in Aceh, hoping to get up on the surf board...and my goal is to finish off a childrens book that has been churning in my mind for a while.......Wouldnt that be perfect, if I could write my way around the world!

Take care , until Aceh........
