|Dear Olive, Peter and Lyn,
many thanks for a great time (again).
Lyn, what a pity that I didn't see you
this time. Hope your knee gets better soon!
Attached a picture of me, maybe that helps
you remembering me. Roald (my partner) and
I live in Brisbane now, and we are both
sure that it won't take us another 2,5 years
to visit again :-)
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy
Ute and Roald
I tried to write in your
guestbook at the webpage, but I couldn't get it to work, so I'm
sending you an e-mail instead.
I visited your farm
twice, first alone and later with my mother. We enjoyed staying at
your farm. If I could I would send you the Danish rain, we don't need
it much! and have plenty of it... unfortunately no snow yet.
Though you would like
to go without having to feed the horses with hay, I must admit I had
much fun doing it. Your horses were the best, I'm almost over my fear
of running horses... thanks to "Bear"... give him a hug,
will you? And say "hi" to Nicky and Trevor! I still can't
forget Nicky's story about that time when she dehydrated.
My mom had the time of
her life riding the horse and the motorbike and would like to say
thanks to that tall, dark and handsome guy, which name she can't
Well, I could keep
writing forever... about the horses, friendly people, George, good
stories, great food and the cute kangaroos.... but it is christmas
soon and the gifts don't buy themselves!!
Merry Christmas from
Dear Olive, Peter, Lyn,
Alwyn Trevor and Kevin
Thanks for a great stay
(back in October). What I had expected to be some interesting
activities turned out to be a deeper experience for me because of the
connections you had with this land and way of life. Thanks to
all of you. Olive I think I've even learnt from you to be a bit
more chilled out about things.
Anyway the experience led
to me writing a poem, something I
haven't done since I was a teenager. Feel free to use if
you wish providing those mentioned in it don't mind.
I hope you have had rain
Best wishes and hope you
have a good Christmas
Olive, Peter and (unfortunately unknown) Lyn,
as promised you'll find enclosed some fotos of our
marriage at Palm Cove from 22nd May 2006 after our staying
at your wonderful farm and also some fotos of Myella.
Our marriage was beautiful, even the whole staying in Australia
was fantastic. So many times we spoke about and show pictures of
the really nice time at Myella! Especially my moments with
the little kangaroo (I'm missing her so much and hope she's fine)
but also all the lovely animals, the people and the very nice
We're sure that we'll coming back to Australia and we're also sure that
we'll see us again! I hope "Pow Wow" will be prepared for me
and perhaps the 'little kangaroo' has got her own puppies ;o)
Since we are back in Germany it is very difficult to integrate in
'normal' life. Australia is such a wonderful country and the Australians
are really mates. We never felt such close in a foreign country....well
we donīt feel like foreigners in Australia. We say thank you very much
for the nice time.
We'll keep this feeling for a long long time ...
Greetings from the city Aachen in Germany
Sandra & Marco
Though I would send you a
quick e mail.
Thanks for the lovely
time I had staying with you for 2 nights 3 days. I absolutely loved my
stay there and have told everyone how wonderful "Speckles"
is and what a film star. Everyone was so good to me during my stay
with you and I really appreciated it.
Give my love to,
Trevor, Kevin and your mum and Dad ( George also and Speckles). It was
such a rewarding time I loved it.
Anyway bye for now,
Love Linda in Oz
wanted to write to let you know how totally amazing my stay with you was
for me. I had an excellent
time and really enjoyed everyday that I stayed with you.
You all deserve a mention because whilst I was there everyone
welcomed me, taught me things & generally made my stay really
taught me how to dig holes in web mud, whilst LYN taught me to dig holes
in dry red dirt. PETER
taught me how to mend a water pipe that was leaking, whilst NICKY taught
me how to milk a cow & that it doesnít matter what Iím doing as
long as I enjoy myself. SHANE
taught me how to ride a motorbike, which is no easy talk cos I cantí
even ride a regular bike.
helped me learn to ride a horses, each of you with a bit extra to tell
me buy KYLE taught me to canter and although I still wouldnít profess
to be great a riding at least now Iím not scared of horses or riding
& I know what I have to do to start, stop, walk, trot canter etc
NICKY taught me how to eat properly again.
After about 10 weeks of eating rubbish or the same thing every
night your food was amazing and so varied.
It was great.
also have to mention cattle mustering, DAVE originally taught me &
LYN and NICKY reinforced it so I know what I should be doing even if I
canít quite get my horse to do it!
also learned so much about farming in general & learnt to lasso,
crack a whip, drive the ute and feed a baby kangaroo!
in all it was great & I just wanted to say thank you so much
in case you forget red hair, English, got dirty really quickly!)
We are home "stiff
and sore but happy". Attached are photos we promised Dave
and one for Trevor from Hayden and Lachlan. When we get all our photos
developed we will send up a hard copy of both for Dave and Trevor. If
you are interested we have some great shots of you doing your horse
demo we can send you. The boys are already telling people about
how lucky we are to have friends with an awesome property that we go
to visit. Because they don't see the money changing hands they must
think that we just roll up, have a great time, and then go home.
Once again, thank you for
another wonderful time.
Your friends always,
The Keynes Family.
|I hope that
you are still the original family that still own the Homestead that I
came to stay for a week back in 1995-1996. I really hope that you
will remember me, but understand if you don't. My name when I came
to stay with you was Toni Bowling and I was from England. I can't
remember when exactly that I came to stay but I wrote in your visitors
book, so hopefully it will jog your memory. I became good friends
with your daughter Lyn.
I remember milking your cow who at the time, had a calf called Norman.
Hopefully this will jog your memory because I was the girl who had the
horse allergy and had to be taken to your local hospital and have a shot
in my backside because my eye's had ballooned and swollen up so much I
looked a bit like a freak!!! I then wore sunglasses for the rest
of my stay because of this.
If you do not remember me then apologies but I found your email address
in the Queensland lonely planet book and wanted to say hi and see what
Lyn is up to now!!
Just a short note to say thanks for a great couple of days. We
really enjoyed our time and the girls have come home absolutely
exhausted. Have attached a good sunset photo I took.
How did you go at the tourism awards? Just thought I would
also mention what a great assett Trevor is to your staff. He is
wonderful at teaching new riders and was excellent with my girls as
well. Is very sensible and always puts safety first.
Thanks again. Love
Sue, Georgia and Sarah.
is everyone there????? Is Kevin still with you? How is Dave settling
started riding lessons back home at the stables near
where I learnt to ride when I was younger. For my first lesson,
because I said I hadnít had a proper riding lesson since I left
their stables 6 years ago, they put me on a 28 year old horse named
so it was more than a little humiliating, especially when the
instructor told me to hold the saddle with one hand when cantering.
Itís certainly very different to Myella
riding Ė we just spend an hour going round and round an arena being
shouted at by a posh upper- class instructor, whoís mean and makes
us trot and canter without our stirrups. Lessons here are very
expensive as well Ė theyíre about 50 dollars for a 1 hour group
lesson, or around 90 dollars to go riding for an hour in Londonís
biggest park in central London, Hyde Park Ė nearly the same price as
a whole day and night at Myella! Iíve
temporarily moved away from
to South West England for my current job, and Iíve found the horse
riding there is much better Ė there is just endless countryside and
moor land to ride through.
hoping to come back out to Australia at the end of January Ė the
exhibition Iím working for at the moment is being put on display in
in January, and they asked me if I want to be involved and work there.
So if I havenít found myself a proper job by then, Iíll be working
in Sydney till April, and will probably come and visit you all in May,
when Iím sure youíll find it equally as impossible to get rid of
me as the last time I was there!!
Australia / uk
Thanks guys for an amazing
few days, dont remember the last time I laughed so much. A great
experience I wont forget. No permenant damage from the "Gaffa
Tape" on my mouth! Hope to be back before the year is out, get the
ice packs ready.
Love to all jo x
Henk van der Meij Gorssel,
After weeks of waiting we finally got back our baggage, including
camera's and pictures, so I can send you some pictures I hope you like.
They are not the average holiday pictures, because they are about cattle
about to leave the farm and pictures that I have named: Staff at work.
After six wonderful weeks of holiday in Australia we returned to Europe
the weekend that the English thougt there might be some terrorism
arrangend by baby food so already at Darwin we had to check in all our
baggage, including telephones, camera's and everything else you normally
take with you in the plane.
The only things we were
allowed to take on board were our passports and creditcard and when we
landed in London we found out that the next flight to Amsterdam was
cancelled and we had to go the last part by train without our baggage.
It took two weeks until we got this back, but now I am happy we have
everything yet, because I have also heard some other stories.
So now we can look at the pictures we made and remember a very nice
holiday from which my son says the best part was the week at Myella.
I think you have seen it too that he was very happy doing things at the
farm with me, riding motorbike, helping with the horses and getting in
the cows at the end of that week.
After Myella we went to
the Queensland coast, the reef and after that we spent three weeks in
the Northern Territories where we had three weeks of sunshine and a lot
of things to see between Alice Springs, Uluru and Darwin.
But as I wrote before, we still remember Myella as the best part of our
holiday. My son has already decide to go back to Australia some time
(without his daddy i think) so you might see him again some time.
Thanks again for this to all of you and we hope to hear from you some
Bram and Henk van der Meij
As promised the link to
our website which I have updated with a blog about our trip up
to visit you
Again a big thank you to you and all the team at Myella we really did
enjoy ourselves and highly recommend the experience to all of our
friends. I have just spoken with Adrian who has only been back
in the office just over 3 hours and he was saying I wish I was just
getting back from a ride - we may have turned my City Slicker into
someone who enjoys the country which is quite a result.
Thanks to you all
there Peter, Olive and Lynne,
seems like an age since we were enjoying our stay with you, but all
things must come to an end and we are both now back in
. I have not forgotten that I was going to send you
some photos of people doing the rope tricks with a more pleasing back
drop. So here they are, I hope they come through ok. if not let me
know and I will try resending them.
Click on the image to see how easy it is
The girls (Janine - my niece, Joelle - her friend and Christa) asked me
send her best regards and wanted to say thank you for everything. They
really loved their stay at Myella and wished they could have stayed
longer. My niece even said she's coming back next year so she can go
back to Myella for a longer time!
For me the stay was as good as last time, really enjoyed myself, had a
good time with the horses and everything. And as I said, I'll be back -
hopefully sooner than later.
Thanks again for everything and looking forward to returning soon,
I just visited your website. You changed it a little bit, didn't you.
It's very nice with the floating pictures!
Myella was one of the most beautiful adventures in Australia. Now I'm
back in Switzerland :-).
Maybe on an other time back in paradise....
Loads of greetings from Rita (I slept outside in a swag, do you
|Dear Lyn ,
Olive and Peter
Hope you are all keeping well. Just a short note to see if you
beds available over the September school holidays for we 3 girls

about a week to catch up with Max and Vi and Peter and Ann and
come out to you guys for a visit.
Love Sue, Georgia and Sarah

(Etienne) & Marit Tilburg the
Lyn, Olive and Peter.
We are already back home in the Netherlands for three weeks, after a
month staying Down Under and still we want to go back! We enjoyed the
three days stay at your Farm. For Steve (Etienne) was it very special to
stay with you again and for me was it very special to ride horse (say
hello to Lancelot from me!) and to drive the motor around your land. But
milking the cow was something I really thought I didn't do that during
my life! It was spectacular and something we will never forget. We'll be
back again one day, we promiss!
Etienne already baked the Anzac-cookies twice, but they are very flat
and thin and he really don't know how that is possible, can you give him
a hint of the clue?
We now send you a few pictures of us during your stay including the
picture we made of you and us.
Steve (Etienne) & Marit Tilburg
Put your feet up and stay
away from the kitchen...
Hello to everyone,
It has been very busy down here as usual. This semester has been
more hands on (but not with living, breathing animals yet :[ the
trouble with becoming a vet is that we have to see the inside of
them as well). We spend about 12 hours each week in the lab.
One of our main activities at the moment is disecting a ridgeback we
nicknamed "Teady". Teady has been preserved and we keep him
until the end of semester. So far we have done the forelimb
muscles, nerves, arteries, & veins and in the process Teady
has had his left leg amputated.
Today was our first day of digestion pracs, and we looked at tounges
and teeth. We had tounges from a cow, calf, horse, dog, cat,
pig, and sheep. It has to be the most bazzar prac I have ever
This Friday we have our first Gatton prac (yeh...living animals!). We
spend all day out there and this Friday is on sheep. In the
following weeks we cover pigs, dairy & beef, horses, cats
& dogs, and poultry.
All the other lab time is spend doing biochemistry... not as hands
I spent last
weekent with two friends at Springville for the
Springmountain Endurance Ride (we helped TPR). We camped out
overnight (I had two sleeping bags and my snow jacket!) and the
ride started at 5.30am Sunday. We arrived Saturday so we could do
the pre-ride checks and then helped again Sunday as the
riders. It was a good ride to go to as we had about 200 riders, many
new to the sport. We go to treat any horses vetted out (I vetted
out 3 on
high heart rate) and do a full metabolic work-up.
Catch up with you later
DON'T FORGET THE BARALABA
CHARITY CAMPDRAFT ON THE
8th,9th AND 10th OF SEPTEMBER.
Adventures of Croc
Thanks for the great experience at myella, really enjoyed myself and
learned so much.
Crocs adventures can be found here.
A few weeks ago I
visited Myella as part of a tour with Explore.
We stayed over night
and went out on horse back the next morning Ė during this trip we
met up with you whilst you were doing the cattle run for the
competition in town.
You asked for one of us
to take some photoís of the cattle with the Myella sign.
I did get some shots,
but not being used to the horse they arenít my best!
The link below will
take you to a website where Iíve got photoís from the trip.
All the photoís at
the top of this album are of Myella Ė please feel free to use any of
these, there are some nice oneís of the site too.
(The way the website
works is it gives you a small low resolution version of the photoís
by default, if you click onto the photoís, then select the size to
be ď3072x2048Ē youíll get the full photo).
I hope you like them,
thanks for an excellent couple of days.
Thanks for a Great Couple of Days
I forgot to include a link to these ŗ
took them the night we got there, just before sunset.
hope to visit again sometime, although I suspect it might be a
friend is going on an around the world trip for a year and ending up
, so Iíve passed him your leaflet Ė hopefully heíll be able to
stop by and enjoy some of the experience.
more from Sabrina,
Oh, I forgot to tell you that I fell of my horse 3 times when I was in
1. Because the right side of my Saddle loosened itself.
2. Two other jumped with there horses over a small crack in the ground,
fist stoped and yelled to me to stop, so I pulled my horse back, but we
still jumped, the guy yelled to hold on, but it was too late :-) I got
on and 20 sec. later the other guy fell off :-))
3. I tried to sit behind the saddle and the horse bucked (that was the
time I hurt myself, because I fell on my butt) 3 or 4 days later we went
rodeo where I rode a bullock, I fell of 3 or 4 meters after we got out
the gate. And I fell on the same spot where I fell of the horse.
But it was still so much fun and I'm just glad that the other from my
station convinced me not to ride a real Bull and Buckjump.
So, that was it.
We came to Myella for an alternative to 'Schoolies' celebrations - not
exactly backpackers but we *did* have to catch a plane from Brisbane to
rockhampton so it was still an adventure. Our week in Myella was so much
better than schoolies, because we got to meet some amazing people from
all over the world, we got to relax, have fun, and have homemade meals
cooked for us! It was a thoroughly enjoyable week and we can't wait to
get back to the farm in the next year or two for another week! It made
both of us realise how lucky we are to be Australian!!! I'm so proud of
myself for learning to ride a horse but i am sure when we come back i
will have forgotten everything and have to start again :D. But everybody
is so patient that it is ok!
I miss the chickens and the cows - we make all our friends here in Brisbane
laugh when we tell them the story of the day we went to bring the cows
in at the end of the day with Jayne, and we started yelling "MOOOOO"
at the cows until we realised Jayne was in-fact yelling
We miss the outback skies and stars, the awesome home cooked food, the
laidback lifestyle, and all the fun times!
Hope all is going well!
Kate and Kathryn (the school girls from 'Brissie')
I visited Myella a few month ago, I was the crazy German girl that went
with the motor bike through the barbed wire fence.
My time in Australia is nearly over, I leave this Thursday (27.7), and
before I leave I just want to thank you for the nice time I had at your
I liked the horse riding and everything so much that I decided to work as
Jilleroo at a Cattle Station.
I was working for 2 month north of Mt Isa and I hade a really great time
there, too. And this time I stayed away from the fences.
Please say hi to everybody and thanks for the time.
I had the great pleasure of
staying with you in 2002 at the recommendation of my parents who stayed
with you a few weeks before. (You told me that my dad insisted on
stopping for a pint at the pub in Doolulu on the way back to Rocky which
I hope is a tradition that you have kept on!) We were all very taken
with the way of life you showed us - very different from our own farm in
Ireland. Although I am stuck in England now I think of you often and
plan to visit again when I return to Australia.
One recent time you came to
mind was in Ireland when the crazy lady who ran the stables we were
riding from was shouting at a friend of mine who learnt to ride when
working at a Opal mine in Australia and I for riding 'Western Style'!
I had the greatest time
getting up at stupid o'clock to round up the horses on a motorbike.
Nobody here believes me, especially if they have seen me trying to be
active before midday never mind 05.30!
I'm really glad you are
still going and have maintained the great atmosphere you had when I was
there as I look forward to revisiting.
Just really enjoyed looking
at your website, it bought back many happy memories from when I stayed
with you in 1997! The reason I looked you up is when I stayed with you
the most fantastic print was on the wall of the room I stayed in
detailing the first? Convict Fleet. I wonder if that is still up on the
wall? If it is would you be kind enough to tell me where it came from
or if there is a printers name on it? I'd love to get a copy! The
reason this crops up now after all these years is that I now have an
Australian girlfriend and I'd love to give it to her as a present!
I hope you are all well,
I'm delighted to see that you are still up and running - I had the best 3
days of my trip with you all those years ago!!! Hope you donít think I'm
too mad for remembering this! Regards
Hello to All from Austin,
Hope yall are all doing well
and the farm is just as breath taking as ever.
Hope to hear from yall as
this makes Myella seem closer than it really is, Down Under. I would
love to hear from anyone as it is my only connection to the place I
consider nearest to my heart, other than the great State of Texas. The
biggest and best in the US.
The weather here is warm or
yall might consider down right hot, 27c = 85 degrees F. It has been as
hot as 95 degrees and this is most common for this time of year. Even
though it is warmer here, we do not have the dry air which makes it just
right for yall in Australia. I prefer the dry, warm to hot air.
Have you heard from Scott,
Cloe or Sophie? I am sure they are having a great time in New Zealand.
This is what is so special - I met people from other countries,
including yourselves. I will be back to Myella - if not next year then
the following - for a much longer stay and hope to see the Northern
Territory as well as WA and SA.
Looking for a job to help
pay for my next trip to Australia and of course those monthly bills that
come each month.
Yall should be receiving a
post card from Texas soon.
Hope to hear from yall -
keep in touch.

Sal and Paul.
Just wanted to thank you guys for a fantastic time at Myella, its been 3
weeks now and I really miss it. I had the most fun I've had all year,
cant remember when I laughed so much. I really am hoping to get back for a
couple of days before I go back home in Nov. Thanks for the ice packs
Olive and thankfully the gaffa tape didnt leave to much dammage!! Thanks
again Jo Mccoll
Beth, Garry & the Boys
Hey you guys! Just wanted to say thank you so much
for your wonderful hospitality (AGAIN!) over the weekend. As always, it
was lovely to catch up with you all ... it really doesn't seem that long
ago that we were up there last time.
We had a good trip home. Said hello to a lovely policeman (with pretty
flashing lights) on the way to Banana from Baralaba. He asked me to slow
down, and let me off with a warning. (And I thought 120 was the limit
No real rain at home. Only 2mm in our guage.
Love to you all.
Beth, Garry and boys
remember us? We stayed on your farm in November 2004 and first met in
Rockhampton when Olive picked both of us up in the car. Then we stayed
on your farm for a couple of days. We spent one night sleeping in swags
under the stars, but in spite of what you guys might have thought,
nothing happened and we were just great friends then.
Amazingly we have managed to keep in touch since then and met again when
Andrea decided to come to the UK for studies. In April 2006, we met
again after nearly 18 months and... eventually discovered that we were
meant to be much more than just friends. Both of us are extremely glad
that we came to stay on your farm, otherwise we would never have met.
I (Andrea) did horse riding only once and then decided to stay on the
ground, but now I have been swept off my feet by this person I met on
your farm. I can't tell you how glad I am that I decided to stay at your
place that time in November 2004.
Billy & Andrea
Dear Peter,Olive and Lyn
Just a quick note to thank
you once again for your kind hospitality and friendliness towards us
city folk, you people have gift that can`t be emulated and a true love
for what you do.
In my job of day to day
hustle and bustle in the city it was an absolute pleasure to spend the
time with genuine people like yourselves and for me to actually forget
what day of the week it was while we where up their is something quite
But all good things must
come to an end, back to sixty e-mails, phones ringing, etc.
Look forward to getting back

|Hi Lyn, Olive,
Peter & Ken
Remember us? So sorry we
have not been in touch up intil now. We have been very slack -
But I am wondering all
this time about Barnaby? How is he?
You will pleased to know we have reccommemded your farmstay to lots of
people we have met and will continue to do so when we get back home.
We are currently in Auckland having just spent nearly 3 weeks wandering
around the two islands. We fly to Chile on Friday for a few days
and then onto Peru for a couple of weeks.
We hope you are all

"This lady came to us sick it was the middle of summer and she
had not drank enough water on here travels.
Please if you are
travelling in the Australian summer drink at least 3L of water
especially when on the
Whitsunday Islands trips I recommend you take some water of your own
just in case." LYN
Hullo to you all,
I couldn't resist going
back to the site and looking at photo's, reliving the wonderful stay
I had with you. I loved it so much. I know
one day I will be back; I still have things to conquer, the horses
the bike and didn't even get to try the whip but I did learn to keep
drinking the water and I'm so good now and I thank you
again for looking after me so well. I tell everyone they must
go and experience your place and they will have an amazing time.
I look at the pictures
on the web page and there is such a yearning to be back in that
lovely place. I can picture you all doing your bit. :-)
I hope you are all well
and had a good summer.
P.S I was
rooming with a girl in Hervey Bay and kept thinking I had seen her
somewhere. We coudln't work it out so gave up and I
thought I must have just been confused with someone else. Then
a couple of days later she spontaneously started talking about this
place she'd been to and as she described it, I smiled and said you
were at Myella.........your the girl that was hosing the horse with
the cut leg.....etc etc.......we both laughed yes we'd both been to
Myella and we'd loved it. It was great sharing about it again.
|Ed & Vicki
Olive, Lyn, Ken, Kevin, Nicki and Gina,
Knowing how hard you all work we doubt that you are rested but hope
nonetheless that you are all still well.
We are leaving Australia tomorrow morning and will be Ho Chi Minh for
dinner. Before we leave we both wanted you to know that our stay at your
beautiful farm is still the most amazing memory we have from 6 months
travelling and we doubt it will be beaten. We tell everyone we meet about
Myella and hope that you have had some visitors who've told you about us-
the obsessed Pom's who love the riding and the Whip!!!!
If any of you ever fancy a trip London, then our house is yours and we
promise to look after you and show you around the 'big smoke'. If you ever
need a marketing representative in the UK, please feel free to ask us and
we'd gladly help you however we can.
Best wishes and we hope to be able to see you all again,
Love Ed and Vicki

just a short message to say that we really enjoyed our
stay with you, i felt some sense of achievement with
the cattle and the branding, it's not often one gets to
do such a thing, i'm a country girl at heart, or would
love to live the life you do.
i would also like to thank your mum for her great
cooking, being a good cook myself i really appreciate
the good home country stuff, it's great.
i also loved the challenge of bill, henis my perfect
beast, good to ride, a wee bit of a challenge and a good
looker to boot.
we had a good trip back, the way that your dad
suggusted was very scenic and we got home in good
time, so today was my work day, tomorrow golf.
i must admit i didn't get around to my exercising as i
had too much on my plate, but tomorrow is the start. did
you hear back about your walker?
ron had a great stay, he enjoyed the riding on
gadet, gave him a wee bit of a challenge and gave him
some confidence, of which i am greatful, means we can do
it more often.
i will try and get up there more often as i love the
horses, especially the spunky ones,i love a safe
challenge........if there's such a thing, a tad of
danger suits me.
i really enjoyed your company so lets keep in touch
my next ride is the high country on the 23rd
april, can't wait, out for one weeks solid riding, not
much good for my golf but who cares.
take care until we meet again, by the way we will take
the full week in august, thanks.

I have just got back to
london (i was with the X-roads tour early in Feb) I just wanted to say
i had an amazing time, it was definitely the highlight of my holiday
and i did some pretty amazing stuff like a helicopter ride around
ayers rock and your place topped that!
I especially liked sleeping in the hammock, you should definitely
recommend it to your guests,
i loved horse riding it was great, Jane was a very good guide (I was
pretty scared of the horse riding at first but jayne showed me how
easy it can be)
Thanks for the great time
I'm sure i'll come back the next time i'm in aus.
