Your Hike in Vanuatu

Michael and JoAnne Gray

Guemes Island

Hi Gabi and Lutz, One of your recent post reminded us of your adventurous hike in Vanuatu where you hiked into the backside of the volcanic crater and lava field. We remember you got lost for a short time, but were able to find your way back to SuAn, where we waited very worried because it was late. This was early on in our friendship and we were only becoming very aware of your incredible spirit of adventure! You guys are incredible in all that you do!!


Amazing voyage!

Hallo Gabi, hallo Lutz, habe gerade einen kleinen Plausch mit Eurer Mama geführt. Ursprünglich wollte ich über Wehnachten und Neujahr in Kolumbien sein, aber es kommt ja bekanntlich immer alles anders als man denkt. So hat es mich noch einmal zu meinem Vater verschlagen. Eurer Quarantänelager gefällt mir auch ganz gut. Selber habe ich mir viel vorgenommen dieses Jahr, es wird garantiert nicht langweilig. Herzliche Grüße auf die andere Seite dieser Welt. Bleibt gesund und frohgelaunt. Mit allerbesten Grüßen aus der Siedlung, Detlef
