This is my chance to say a very big collective thanks to you all for your kind messages over the past few days. I’m sorry I haven’t blogged for a while, and I’m sorry I haven’t yet had time to reply to you individually – I’ve been exhausted in truth. It’s been quite busy what with my arrival and then some good cricket to watch. It’s now 11pm in Brisbane and the alarm is set for 4am – I’m off to the barrier reef and Daintree National Park for some rest.
There will be plenty more to come from my blog, including highlights of the trip and some of the lessons I learnt along the way. When I get home to England in the New Year I’ll be looking for a publisher too. But for now here are just a few photos from the past week (more to let you all know that I’m still alive than anything else). I’ll have more time for a good blog in the next week or so.

Please remember that I am still trying to raise funds for The Lord’s Taverners and the British Neurological Research Trust. The running total is about £60,000 which means there is still £40,000 to go. So if you have enjoyed my blog then PLEASE donate and help me reach my goal. Thank you! Oli
