Im too tight to call Mark even if it's free, LOL! seriously though, see you guys on Monday, should be amusing.


I have meetings in town on Monday - I might be able to catch up with you all briefly. I think that I still have Mark's number in my phone.

Best regards

It is bloody cold over here...........I cannot belive this is Spring! And there are Poms everywhere!!!!!! And everyone here talks with a bloody funny accent!

Arrived safely although had a medical emergency on the plane and nearly had to land at Istanbul. But I got here and have checked out Kings Cross and Leicester Square. Can't wait to get the cameras out tomorrow but for now am foot sore and tired.

Will aim to be at the Tower Hill at 9am tomorrow. It is only 2pm (11-05pm my time) and I am ready for bed.....blahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! But have to fight the tube again to get back to my hotel....if I can remember where it is!

Got in about 45 minutes ago - long journey back... Just one for now - will sort out my portfolio with images from the day and post them up here tomorrow probably.

Thanks for a great day guys, really enjoyed myself.

Will start downloading photos soon.
05/20/2008 08:43:58 AM · #167

Enjoy Europe!

Hey guys....I just checked out the photos. I am in an Internet Cafe catching up on the goss.

As for the Koalas for the ones that weren't there....I thought they might all enjoy a bit of 'Aussie Bush'....hehehehehe!!

And yes...my hair is red...lmao!

Oh and Damion is reading over my shoulder (as usual) and has said to let you all know that he spells his name with an 'O'.....he has to be difficult!!!!

I have downloaded my images to my laptop....but the laptop is struggling so I may have to withhold uploading any until I return home. But I am enjoying seeing everyones images come through.

I head off early tomorrow morning for Europe....so I will try to log in when I can.

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday and wanted to give you all a BIG thankyou for such an awesome time and company. You are all truly the best.

We went out today without the cameras to explore a little and somehow (don't ask how, cause I still don't know), we found ourselves at Trafalgar Square...lost and bamboozled. But we eventually found our way back to Leicester Square and found a whole new area. Talk about getting lost in London....hehehehe....but what do ya expect from an Aussie.....!!! At least I could explain the blushing by the reflection off my hair....hehehehe!!

Would like to agree with the others, had an amazing day, kinda surreal to meet Judi & DamiOn. I guess the icing on the cake was for Judi to come all the way to London and actually get to see the Queen!! Trust me Judi, she doesnt spend the day driving in and out of Buck House, we was incredibly lucky!

On another note, that Policeman has emailed me and has also joined DPChallenge!! his user name is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Jarjar so make sure you drop him a line and say hi.

I can honestly say that I've not had such a day in a long time. It all went past so ridiculously quickly.

I am about to head to Europe. We are sitting in our hotel room looking at the thumbnails on my mobile phone. The images look great. Can't wait to get on a pc to see the larger versions. I got quite a giggle from some of them. Lots of good memories . The processing is excellent.

I have watched the videos that Damion did on the day and you can clearly hear the firing of the shutters all around. I will upload some to this thread when I get back home. Mark might not be too keen when he sees the one of the Ladies Toilet episode...hehehe !
'Anyway will check in again soon.
