    Hi all
    Just got back from 2 months touring France Spain and Morocco. We caught an earlier ferry than expected. We were coming back Thursday but had a phone call from Daniel saying he would be home today from his tour of duty so we managed to jump on an earlier ship. We made it home about 3 hours before him so Jan was happy and had a tearfull reunion.

    What can I say about the trip, what a fantastic adventure we had, especially in Morocco.
    A lot of Morocco was exactly what we expected as we've visited 3 arab countries before so we were not too shocked. What did shock us however was the amazing sights and scenery it was a hundred times better than we ever imagined. Ray & Debbie of Desert Detours were charming hosts to Jan & I as we arrived early. His laid back manner was perfect for the trip especially when dealing with a bunch of Funsters and came in particularly handy when I lost it at the border on the way out. Ray will also be remembered by the ladies for his shopping skills which were quite incredible to watch.

    What made the trip memorable however was the company we travelled with, not a day went by that we did'nt fall about laughing at something or somebodies antics. This will always be one of our favourite trips no matter where our travels take us. We'd like to say a massive Thank You to all our travelling companions it was a priviledge to travel with you.
    Also to Ray and Debbie for all their efforts.
    Rory & Jan
