Will you be stopping in the Bay Area at all? Two of your posters are hanging in our daughter's room and it'd be cool to get a photo of her with you guys.

Dropping by San Diego

...evening all,

just a quick note to say hi. We're still in Vegas and waiting to get a new tire onto Lisa 650 tomorrow over at the dealership. We had a blast Friday evening at BMW Motorcycles of Las Vegas and the crowd that turned up and braved the heat were great.



We'll be heading tomorrow to head south west and down to see Gary and Mike at San Diego BMW Motorcycles, where we'll be sharing all 10-years of our journey. OK, sure not all ten years, but the highlights and dramatic bits anyway

Since departing the US almost 5 years ago we traveled through:

Japan
far East Russia
Siberia
Mongolia
Central Russia
Kazakhstan
Kyrgyzstan
Tajikistan
Afghanistan
Turkmenistan
Iran
Pakistan
India
Nepal
Thailand
Cambodia
Laos
Malaysia
Indonesia
East Timor
Australia
New Zealand


...we arrived back in the USA to head up to Alaska about 5 weeks ago.

We'd love to see some old and new friends, so if you up for a good night out come down and see us in San Diego here's the details:
Where: San Diego BMW Motorcycles
5673 Kearny Villa Road,
San Diego, CA, 92123

GPS: N32°50.250' W117°08.083'

Date: Wednesday 6th July 2013

Time: 7:00pm

ticket: Free Entry

Phone: 858-560-2453

Snacks and refreshments will be served

https://www.facebook.com/events/559330167450407/

Cheers for now
As always...Ride far and Ride Safe
Simon T

Simon and Lisa, it was so great seeing you guys out here in Vegas! Even though I missed the actual presentation, you guys more than made up for that with good food and wine. It was a pleasure to host you in my home, and look forward to running into you both again in the very near future.

Cheers, Steve

Thank you

I just wanted to say thank you to you both for sharing your very intimate and amazing journey around the globe with us. Your presentation was so inspirational to me that I'm now going to plan an adventure as well...

I met you at the Ventura BMW dealership the other night but sadly had to leave early. I would love to contribute to your awesome journey if you please guide me to where I can send it

Thank you both again,

Nancy ( the girl with the blonde braids)

Hi Nancy,

We (wife, daughter and I) were at Ventura also.

There is a support tab at the top of Lisa's and Simon's website http://2ridetheworld.com/. That's what I used. I'm sure they appreciate anything and everything.

Cheers,

Mark
