Hi everyone, yes Max I am writing on a blog!!!! Well, the travelling has been a real experience, second part of the flights have gone well, just the last one tomorrow. The local residents of  Kathmandu are absolutely mad, their driving skills are unbelievable. We avoided accidents potential accidents but we did make it to the Hotel Thamel, place is interesting. Happy days!

    To say that I am impressed dad would be an understatement. You are clearly excelling in this field. Glad to hear everything is going smooth so far, nutty people? Must be the altitude. You got a lot of support back here, loads of people asking about you and sending well wishes. Keep us updated! I’m sure more than one blog is achievable. Big love as ever.

    I have to admit I never thought I would have seen a blog from Alan Milliner MBE, well done father. I’m glad you arrived safely and that you have already started the adventure of a lifetime. I have witnessed driving like that, a bit like being in the car with mother driving….I will probably get a slap for that one when she sees this. Enjoy the flight and look forward to the next update, love James and Victoria x by the way the Shiraz is bloody lovely x

    Hi Al, Glad to hear walking up a big hill got off to a good start. Bit concerned as haven’t seen TB for a while, can you pop back to (monkey mountain) and give him a shout, think he might have stowed away. Don’t forget it’s Mow vember back in the UK and I expect to see a suitable ridiculous variation on your chacks. All the best from the Probus Massive x.
