Got back in one piece Lorenzo. Bad weather delayed our flight from Phu Quoc to Ho Chi Minh and the flight back to the UK didn't wait for the 14 of us who were hoping to catch it
Airline bundled us into a taxi at 3 in the morning to a local gulag for a bit of sleep and we had another crack the following night. Ended up going via Paris.
Total time 51hrs back home at 4pm last night. Enjoy your jaunt!

Great news GD! Enjoy your hols too Rome is lovely, my top tip, don't drive a hired minibus round the city for 4 hrs getting hopelessly lost.
Poacher, both seem like good choices. If you are looking for relaxed riding then go for the defy; if you want something a bit more aggressive and rapid then go for Planet X - horses for courses but only marginal edging either way for each I think.
Currently on hols here too on a tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. Loved Hanoi with "crossing the road" seemingly the local sport and hen a cruise round Ha Long bay - even had a swim then a flight across to Siem Reap to visit the Angkor temples (amazing) and now in lovely beach hotel on an island off the coast. Too hot to run in any place we've been but this spot has a 30m pool so I've been bashing out the lengths to try to off set the 2000calorie breakfasts. Off to Sweden in less than a fortnight for OtillO!
