So lovely to wake up and know we donīt have to pack up the tent! I lazed around in bed while Mikey (best husband in the world) cooked us fried egg sandwiches and made coffee in the rain. By 11, it had stopped raining and we pedalled 3 miles into town to wander round with 100s of other tourists. Suspect we donīt look very cool, all matchy matchy in our Northface jackets, waterproof trousers and bike bags - of well! Slowly wandered up to the castle as our legs were very tired. We thought about trying to go to a mozart concert tonight, but havenīt managed to find the lady who runs our campsite so canīt do any washing and Mikey only has shorts left - We didnt think smart casual meant that casual. Weīre going to save it and go in Vienna in a couple of days instead. Spent the rest of the day lazing at the campsite until we came back into town 3 hours ago and have spent all that time uploading this blog!! Hope you enjoy the pictures and videos, we are off for a well earned meal and beer! Miss you all, friends and family, speak soon xxxxxxxx

Hi to you both.
Have today worked out how this all works and have sat and read all your comments from start to finish. What an amazing time you both seem to be having, loads of fantastic memories that will live with you both for ever. I have to say I am totally exhausted hearing about all your cycling miles - you are amazing.
Am excited now to follow your progress. Take care xxxxx

Amazing progress guys loving the photos. Especially love the picture of Mikey in his wet cycling shorts holding a beer.

Usual suspects for Sunday lunch me & CJB & Amanda Mae, all three Stortons and sister Mandy so we will raise a glass to you. We are off to France tomorrow for a little holiday in Honfleur - really looking forward to it, and will look forward to catching up with your blogging when we get back.

Charlotte E on

Hi Guys,
You both look so well in the photos which is great to see.
Have had a very productive weekend building a shed roof with Ruth and Jaimie in the rain and more DIY at home on Sun. Ruthie is looking great but Jaimie's DIY skills haven't improved - it is a wonder he has any fingers left after hammering them so often ;-) They cooked us a delicious meal on Sat eve and I was about to give up work when I found out I had four numbers on the Euro Millions Lottery......l calmed down again when I realised my winnings were a massive £17.
Giles chuffed to be asked to be Tom's best man with Adam.....years of ammunition for that speech :-)
Much Love Cxxxx

Great to see you both and read more about your travels. Amazing! Am so proud of you both. Had an early finish at work today, took TOIL so watching Will&Grace, catching up on your blog & other emails/bills etc... It is chilly here. You have done so much already. Had a good uni friend to stay over the weekend and we wandered to Gunwharf on Sunday for some shopping & coffee, I took a picture of Alice & will upload for you - thinking of you both lots. Matchy matchy!!! xxxxx

Hey guys, we are missing you loads - walking by your house feels wierd and it is really beginning to sink in that we won't see you for a year. Olaf is eating some nice toast today - first time and V exciting! Got to love the toast! Well we are off swimming today so will catch up soon, hugs and kisses from us both (and George who has now started horrible course but is enjoying it so far!) xxxx on

Skype is briliant and dads and I were thrilled to see and hear you both yesterday. Have just come back from Chi with a road atlas of Europe,so hope to follow you more accrately from now on. Also, more anti bios from dentiist which I'll give to Ellie - they all think you are doing brilliantly and took the balog address. Just wondered if you wanted us to order a road map of India if there is such a thing - they certainly had a New Zealand one in Waterstones. Goting back for a hair cut in minute, so will email you again soon. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
