    Thank you Roger, I had a great birthday indeed !!! Aren't we the same age ? We enjoy to do the same crazy things,we think alike,we both have the smile of a young boy on our face (so I was told)...We should't anybody allow to tgell us how old we arebecause that is up completely to us and our attitude :D





    Thank you Deb ! And yes, it was fabulous : We had a house with a great kitchen to ourselves, so between walks on the beech and drinking Prosecco and white wine all day long I got the chance to cook breakfast,lunch and dinner:freaky:freaky:dg:dg

    Would be great if we could meet one day and share some stories and cooking !

    Guaterider, Oaxaca is doable, I know Steve the CraneGuy wants to head there sometime and he's in Cuernavaca.
    We can celebrate for sure, be nice if our friend Officer Hammer can make it down from Missouri.:freaky

    I just want to let you know you're my new hero! :clap

    I just found this awesome thread and am still back on page 28, trying to catch up. I'm getting close to buying my first dual sport (2012 wee strom) and this thread has me seriously planning a back roads journey.

    Muchos gracias and have fun!

    I thought this needed to be Photoshopped

    Whoa, I'm a little behind the 8-ball! A couple of days away from your blog and you've already gotten a year older. That'll teach me.

    Feliz cumple (disculpa la tardanza), Julio.

    Bien hecho, Luisa!

    Snowy greetings from Montana... :raabia

    I've made three attempts to meet up with Julio and Luisa in the US and have yet to accomplish it! Heck it may take a trip to Oaxaca to meet up. :D:D

    You see, the longer you wait, the further you have to go ! If it's not Oaxaca it has to be Guatemala or Tierra de Fuego :D:D

    I didn't get a year older, I don't get older at all actually . It's just a false rumor caused by my body; if you ask my mind you can get the real version of the story :evil:evil:evil

    Muchas gracias y un abrazo soleado :D
