  1. Hey lovely family – I’ve sent you a note by instant messenger – a friend of mine works for the Charles Darwin Foundation – Swen Lorenz – he’s in the island for a few days and I’ve asked him to show you round x

  2. Hey everyone!!!
    It looks like you’re having the most incredible time! I miss you all like mad and sometimes think I’m a bit crazy for not being on that boat! Today, after seeing these pictures, is one of those days!!!

    Lots of love Rachael! Xxx

  3. What a fantastic set of photographs, thank you for sharing your fantastic experience.
    And the best is yet to come.
    Best wishes, Jon.

  4. Hey Caspar and family – i just spent 24 hours in bed with vomiting sickness and thought i had recovered – but having seen that last set of photos makes me want to throw up again – with jealousy of course – Brooksie

  5. Hi,
    Have really enjoyed reading all your updates over the past few weeks. Great to see the photos – Freya loved the one of Willow with her sunglasses in her head! It’s good to know that Bluebell and Columbus are working so hard. I am sure you are learning a lot more than you could ever learn in school!
    Enjoy the next 3000 miles.
    Take care
    Love from Mrs.Isaac and Freya x

  6. Congratulations Nichola for a fantastic family!

  7. Hey guys,

    Looks like you’re having an incredible time, very envious. Hope all is well, I’ll be honest having read a couple of the blogs my inner explorer is whispering in my ear.

    Hope to hear all about it
    Frazer
