Before things get messy, just a quick overly-sentimental message from me down here at the Southern Tip. Many thanks to you guys for reading 6000 miles… this year – and especially those who have commented here or on Facebook.

Amazingly, it’s been another record breaking year for the blog and that’s solely down to people like you coming to read my drivel.

So thank you, have a great New Year and a successful and safe 2014. We’ll still be here to keep you company – you know the address.
