    Amazing! Congratulations. The sad bit is that one of my favourite blogs won’t have many more regular updates.

    Well done guys :)

    It’s been very enjoyable following your journey. Now go find some beer and enjoy a nice fry-up tomorrow :)

    So great to see, you made it! Brilliant job, guys! Congrats!
    It’s been a great pleasure “walking“ with you thru the entire country. A bit sad though it’s over now.
    Enjoy your holidays and have a safe trip home.

    Thanks so much guys!! It’s been brilliant to know we have had so many people cheering us along all the way. And checking in to make sure we’re still alive too ;)

    It’s going to be sad not to be on the trail anymore, camping out and meeting crazy people, but it’ll be awesome to get onto phase two of the adventure – The Cook Islands! We’re casting ourselves away on a desert island! WooHooo! So, stay tuned for lots of Wilson jokes, and Cookie looking even more like Tom Hanks by the day. There will be fishing and coconut adventures a plenty ;)

    See you all soon back in Blighty, for the mother of all booze ups. You’re all invited!

    Well done Nicky and Cookie. Congratulations. Another trip complete and thanks for sharing it with us again. How does it compare to the CDT Cookie? The scenery looks way better and far more varied.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed following your journey from Virginia USA. You are both so inspiring and beautiful! The photos, descriptions, stories, sunrises, splashes, meats, bugs, and birds were all amazing! Congratulations to you both! Best of luck on all your future endeavors! -Cole

    Absolutely amazing news, well done you two.

    So so proud of you Nicky who’d have thought that you’d end up walking 3000 KM over proper big ass mountains and ting! A huge, positive step forward Sticky Lickson.

    Lot’s of love and respect.

    I’ve really enjoyed following your progress from the start and I’m a little sad it’s over! The photography has been amazing and the whole account entirely entertaining. Congrats again and enjoy your well-deserved rest.
