Announcing our phase 2 Alpha Romeo groups....

Finally! A few minutes to let you know where our ace Alphas are for their next projects! I think the fieldbase team are in agreement when I say we've never been as tired in our lives. We waved goodbye to the Alphas at 7am yesterday then had two hours to get everything prepared for the Deltas so we could do 'changeover' all over again. We've never run two groups concurrently in the same expedition before (double the number of venturers) so it really is a mammoth effort from all our volunteer managers to pull this off. But the 18 hour days are worth it because of the wicked buzz of having so many amazing venturers back with us in fieldbase, sharing their stories, their energy, and their excitement.

Alpha Romeo 1 - Corcovado trek, Costa Rica 
Starting in the stunning montane La Amistad National Park, the largest national park in Costa Rica and a UNESCO World Heritage site, the trek gets the chance to walk through beautiful mountain scenery and towering cloud forest. After passing by waterfalls and hot springs the group will cross the Coto Brus valley to the Fila Costena – a chain of mountains that run parallel to the sea. Once they are out of the mountains the group will finish the trek by crossing the famous Corcovado National Park that straddles the Osa Peninsula, walking through the best preserved tropical rainforest in Central America. The group will have a chance to see monkeys and Tapirs before the walk along the beaches of the Pacific Ocean for three days at the end.

Alpha Romeo 2 - Guanacaste Trek, Costa Rica
The setting for this trek covers a huge variety of different ecosystems from cloud forest above 3000 metres down to one of the last remaining stands of primary dry tropical forest left in the Americas. The group will start close to the Arenal volcano and see its lava run down the sides at night before circumnavigating Volcan Tenorio via the Caribbean slopes visiting Turquoise waterfalls and moist rainforest. After passing by Volcan Miravalles the group will head to Rincon de la Vieja national park to climb one of the volcanoes and to witness steaming mud pots, geysers, and hot sulphur springs. After several days of walking through the forest they'll arrive at the foot of Cerro Cacao in Guanacaste National park where they'll steady themselves for a climb up the volcano. The trek will finish at Playa Junquillal to relax by the beautiful calm waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Alpha Romeo 3 - Braulio Carillo National Park, Costa Rica
This will be the first time that Raleigh has worked in Braulio Carillo National park - a stunning area of primary rainforest situated in the heart of the Caribbean slope of Costa Rica. It abounds with animals, birds, insects and plants. The reserve acts as a biological corridor between many neighbouring protected areas. The plans for this reserve including building trails in the forest that will be used by tourists and school groups to learn more about this impressive area and the wildlife it contains.

Alpha Romeo 4 - La Cangreja environmental project, Costa Rica
La Cangreja is Costa Rica’s newest National Park which owes its name to the striking 1,305 metre peak Cerro Cangreja. The park has a mixture of Tropical Humid forest and Pre-Montane forest with a number of species of plant found nowhere else in the world which makes the area important for research purposes and for conservation. The park is also blessed with amazing waterfalls only to be found through exploring the forest. At present the government is developing the facilities in the park so this group will continue the trail building work started in phase 1, enabling better access.

 Alpha Romeo 4

Alpha Romeo 5 - San Marquena, (Achuapa), Nicaragua
Close to the town of Achuapa, in one of the poorest most remote areas of Nicaragua, Raleigh is working on a gravity-feed water project to bring clean and safe drinking water to families in the community of San Marquena. The group will continue to work with the locals to dam small streams, build tanks to collect the water from where it can run through pipes to all the local houses.

The Miraflor reserve is 206sqkm of beautiful mountainous terrain with various different ecosystems such as tropical savannah, dry tropical forest and mountain cloud forest. On this project the participants will continue to build a community centre in the community of La Colmena which will be used for community meetings, cooperative meetings, adult education, pre-school education and recreational activities.

  1. Alpha Romeo 1. Lieve Anne, wat zie je er goed uit, en wat lijkt het een grote vrolijke bende daar bij jullie. Heb je ook mee gedaan aan de optredens en body painting voor het feest? Hier alles ok. Heel leuk om je donderdag even gesproken te hebben. Wat een enthousiaste verhalen en bijzondere ervaringen. Ga je je leven niet meer vergeten. Het is nu laat en ging toch nog even kijken op het blog en ja daar waren de nieuwe groepen. Inmiddels ben je al weer een paar dagen verder en zal je best wel moe zijn..
    Net terug van de film met Papa en Tineke. Paul doet morgen de Vasaloppet. We zijn naar the King's speech geweest. Fantastisch goeie film, ook al heb alles er al over gelezen en/of gezien. Vandaag verder een heerlijk leesdagje thuis bij de haard. Noortje is natuurlijk weer de hort op naar Hilversum en Huib had Flint over de vloer.
    Nou dit was het weer even voor nu. Houdt je taai, we zijn super trots op je!! xxxm

  2. To Lucy Hill Delta 1
    Happy birthday Trouble,
    I'm so pround of how well your doing you sound like your having a whale of a time! I can't believe how well your doing. Working with all of them kids must have been amazing and all that good food sounds like heaven out there haha. I'm missing you like crazy but everything is good this end so you just crack on having the time of your life and just know were all here knowing you can do it.
    hike thing like i always say "Don worry about it" your going to walk it easy. Your like a super hiker, your going to do amazing and walk it like it was an easy walk to beckenham nando's :D! So glad your doing well with the frogs and stuff if your doing that good out there i suppose i can stop hiding the frog book when you get back. Were all thinking of you and no matter how big the mountain is your going up just think you get an easy down hill part on the way back. Your like the best hiker I know (which of course your the only one) :).
    Hope your doing super though and that your birthday was absolutely amazing sounded like you had a great time, you'll get your present when you come back even though i know it will be late. Were all thinking of you and if you ever feel down just look at your wrist and know where all here routing for you!

  3. For Hannah Tonneman- Alpha 5, Phase 2

    Darling Hannah,
    How lovely to see your happy smiling face in the group photo ! We are following the Raleigh blog with great interest (and have told everyone we know about it, so hopefully you'll get lots of messages !) Is it completely surreal to be in Nicaragua, waking up to rural village life ? Probably more surreal to be getting this message from your old mum in the middle of nowhere- yikes, she's found me ! =D All's well on our side of the world, still very cold, but not a lot of snow. Your hat arrived two days after you left, Cato is very pleased with it ! Enjoy the next three weeks, darling- we love you and are thinking of you. Mum xxxxxx

  4. Herma van der Wal6 March 2011 at 01:37

    To Harm van der Wal.Alpha 2, Phase 2
    Darling Harm,
    I will write this reaction in my best English speak, because I think that contact with your group will be only possible by radio. I don't think that the staff has allready an excellent pronouncing of the dutch words.It was so nice to have contact with you on MSN and skype, sadly however without your voice.
    We hope to have a little contact on your return from this trek. I looked up the places of this trek in the books we have of Costa Rica. It looks amazing. Enjoy every minute of it! Save all the images that you see on your retina.
    Stay save and have a very good trek. We love you and are thinking of you and your adventures a lot.
    Lots of kisses, Mama

  5. For Jessica Bridge-Dunk Delta 6/ maybe different one now.....
    Hi Bunny,
    It was so lovely to see you "live".It must have been a strange and entertaining few minutes for the other folks in Cafe Nero as Dad and I shouted,laughed and cried our way through the conversation.
    I hope that this next bit is going to be really interesting and that it is not too dangerous!
    Am looking forward to reading the previous groups blog to give me a bit of an idea of what is in store for you...
    Today we hope to get our bikes out and go for a ride to the farm cafe.It will be 10 miles there and back with a hill on the approach to Pollington so at least you know we are facing great physical challenges too.
    I hope that you are not travel sick next time you are on a bus and that you have asked for some antiseptic wipes or whatever is necessary to keep your ear heling well. Ask first but the spray in your first aid kit may be ok.
    Love you so much. Your Mummykins x

  6. To Caroline Murray now Alpha Romeo 4

    Hi Caro

  7. Jessy BC Delta 2 Turtle Bay!
    Hi Beegirl, I know I said I wouldn't bombard you with messages anymore (2 a week ok?) but I have to tell you how chuffed I am that you sound so happy, it's wonderful. I'm off to the country to see Paul today so I'll be walking in woods too, but it will be Surrey Hills not Nicaraguan volcanoes... Terry sends his love. Just tried ringing grandma but she must be out having sunday lunch somewhere, will call her when I'm home if it's not too late. Love you wonderbee! Your v. proud mum xxxxxxx

  10. Nelly Smeets ouwehand6 March 2011 at 07:04

    For Fabienne ouwehand, (Alpha Romeo 3)

    Fabje, wat heerlijk weer je op de foto te zien. Je ziet er goed en ontspannen uit. Wat ga je naar een prachtig gebied! We hebben gegoogled om te zien waar je zit en kregen zeer mooie foto's te zien. Echt fantastisch! Hier gaat alles goed. Gisteravond zijn Feike en Xandra geweest en gistermiddag nog met papa naar oma geweest. O ja, Fab mijn reis met de meiden is weer eens geannuleerd. Niet te geloven toch? Moeten nu iets anders verzinnen hoe we daar komen en met welke maatschappij. Meisje, ik hoop dat deze weken net zo fantastisch zijn als de vorige. Ik heb in ieder geval gezien dat Katharine ook in deze groep zit en dat helpt misschien dat "familiegevoel" van de Alpha's 1een beetje te behouden. Lief, ik hoop snel iets van jullie werk te kunnen zien op het blog. Ik hou van je en ben ontzettend trots op je!

  11. Fiona illingworth6 March 2011 at 09:06

    For Meg Illingworth Alpha Romeo 5
    Hi Meg
    Its great to see your new group on the blog and to find out what you are up to you to next. It sounds like an amazing project,helping to supply water to the village and transforming their lives,something that we take for granted here in the UK every time we turn the tap on !!
    We've loved looking at the photos you've posted on Facebook the views look incredible and we didn't realise how good you are with a shovel !!
    Its been really cold and damp here, so trust me you are not missing a thing. Dad played 36 at Hollinwell yesterday and got soaked so you can imagine what mood he was in when he came home !!!! a little ray of sunshine. Lu and I went to see Leicester Tigers play Saracens yesterday tense game that Tigers lost 14-15 .
    Looking forward to the next installments on the blog !!
    Love you loads
    Mum Dad and Lucy xxx

  12. For Alette Jansen, Alpha Romeo 1

    Lieve Alette,
    Dank voor je sms-je voor onze gouden bruiloft!
    Wij hadden een prachtig feest met familie en de beste vrienden. Mooie speeches, heerlijk eten en live jazz. Meer vertellen wij later.
    Wat een supertocht lijkt ons de Corcovado trek;
    zo te zien met een heel enthousiaste groep.
    Wij volgen je op de blog!
    Veel liefs, xxx Trudy en Dick.

  13. To Caroline Murray Alpha 4,

    Hope your starting to feel a lot better now, was a really nice phone call and even better unexpected message on facebook, happy you could find some way of contacting me, cannot wait for the 22nd and to hear about what you have been doing. Just you focus on getting better and enjoying the second phase, seen the pictures that have been uploaded your looking amazing, so don't worry about the weight loss it doesn't show ha. Your rubbish laptop wouldn't let me zoom in on one of the pictures, so a bit annoyed with that. Im also not liking this dangerous snake talk, be careful over there your only small ha. Had this weekend off again not sure if i said to you when you phoned, has been really good, managed to get quite a few weekends off so been with the guys all the time, taking my mind off things and time is flying so your return will be shortly. Went Plymouth last night with daymo, mel sophie cleave, mike and a few others, it was a good night, iv stolen your friends, but they also send there love. Im feeling rough still and it's 4o'clock, not good i need you here to help the suffering. Iv decided im not drinking this month now, so saving will be flying, got tomorrow off so changing the money into euro's, so I wont be tempted to head out. Also Im thinking of what il russel up for you when your back, you could be in for a treat, Il make you try quail it's really good you'll love it, no more rice for you haha. We can go away for a weekend at some point, been working there for nearly 6 months, so it will be really cheap in one of the hotels. sorry if some of this doesn't make sense to you, i'm feeling tender and cannot concentrate, read the last message i sent on a sunday, it was tragic haha. But do not worry il be sure to write something tomorrow or tuesday and keep you updated on things. missing you lots, love you Sam xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  14. Message for Ellie Spicer Alpha Romeo 4

    Darling Ellie

    So lovely to get your email and to see the pics of you safely back at Field Base. It seems that you have had an amazing experience. The photos on the blog are wonderful and you look so well, albeit a bit lighter - keep eating the porridge and beans. We are still hard at it decorating however progress has slowed some what. Every one sends their love. We are looking forward to the next blog of you in your new group.
    Much Love

    Mum and Dad xxxxxx

  15. For Rebecca Eno, 11C Delta 3

    Well what a lovely surprise to get a message from you! Firstly mahoosive congratuwelldonesies on Dure 'em (quelle college?), sure I will be joining you as I don't think I've done any work all week so A*s = not happening. Genuinely, my facebook addiction is damaging my health and I still can't kick the habit. Also can't actually update you any further as I feel this is a bit too public a forum...but I CAN tell you that I did in fact have a dream about a certain head of calendar contracting terminal cancer, of course I was the only one in the school who knew the secret. Oh you must despair in me sometimes, I see all these lovely heartfelt messages about family pets and how proud everyone is and what a wonderful thing this is you're doing and all I'm talking about is my rather over-active subconcious. One last thing - is Upper 6 always this awful? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  16. Adam Chalkley - Alpha 5
    Hi Adam it was lovely to see a picture of you with your new group. Dad has looked up roughly where you are - place itself a bit small for google earth!! we have also looked up the weather looks as if it will be hot enough even for you!! Here its still chilly but we did see the sun today (what a treat!) Do take care I'm sure the experience will be truly amazing with memories that you will cherish for ever. Mark will be contacting you soon with another sports update!! Can't wait to hear all your news loads of love Mum & Dad

I never knew she was joining your group! that must be nice! Hope your having fun! Love you so much Ellie xxxxx

  19. For Alette Jansen, Alpha 1

    Ha die lieve kanjer!,
    Wat een heerlijke opgewekte strijdvaardige foto van het begin van de Corcovado trek van jullie Alpha 1 groep. We hopen dat je een beetje bijgekomen bent van al je werk in Nigaragua waar het water nu vrijelijk kan stromen.
    Mam en ik hebben een heerlijk feest gehad bij Opi en Omi voor hun 50 jarig huwelijk. Mam heeft nog gespeeched en het geweldig gedaan. Vandaag was het pachtig weer, ietwat koud maar strak blauw. We hebben heerlijk met Beike in het bos gewandeld. Gil en ik komen net van Ajax terug en dus zal ik je toch ook maar een voetbaluitslag geven: 4-0 ook al hou je niet van voetbal haha, wij zijn er erg blij mee! Gil heeft zich een beetje op het zonnetje verkeken, dus het was flink koukleumen voor hem in het stadion. Lieve schat, we denken aan je en zien je al in onze fantasie lopen door een van de mooiste natuurparken van de wereld. Hou vol en dan 's avonds, hoor ik van mam, heb je een heerlijk (luxe!)matje waarop het goed uitrusten is. We blijven je grote avontuur op de blog volgen!
    Dikke kus van ons en Gilles en een poot van Beike,

    Hou van je,


  20. Hola Ticos of AR 2!

    and in particular Sophie -

    Only 270 KM to walk ??? Easy life! When I was in CR we had to walk twice that far just to get to an off licence.

    Whatever you do don't stop at the many casinos lining the route or compete in the "Eat an entire cow in one sitting' competitions. The taxi drivers are not to be trusted, don't mention Che and if someone shouts "Matabuey!" get up a tree - fast.

    Apart from that Enjoy your walk in the woods - like I said before, these are the very best of times........

    Your affectionate Uncle,

  21. For Camilla O'C Alpha Romeo 1

    Hello Cam. It was good to speak to you the other day. Glad everything is sorted. Enjoyed your piece on your first escapade. Hope you enjoy the others as much. Went to see your Grandmother today and went with her to buy a laptop. Before long she'll be on facebook. She seemed well. She is having computer classes and paid extra to have them come to her to set everything up and so hopefully she will be sending you messages before too long! Chelsea play Blackpool away tomorrow evening. Arsenal drew at home to Sunderland and ManU lost at Liverpool. I rode Herne Hill yesterday. Exhausting and very fast. Everyone seems younger than ever. Estelle was there having ridden in her first pro race in Belgium! No wonder I struggle to keep pace. Love you. Work hard and enjoy xxxx

  22. To Duaa, Alpha Romeo 1

    Hey Du!

    So you've set off onto yet another adventure and I'm sure it will be just as amazing as the last if not more! I read about where you'll be going and it sounds beautiful, enjoy every minute, take lots of pics and make sure you top up that tan!!

    There's a pic on the blog of you and Don Boliver with a cake, looks so cute. I forgot to ask you, was it an emotional goodbye leaving the jungle? Speaking of cakes I made my infamous carrot cake yesterday...dont worry I saved u a slice! I was hoping it would be mybreakfast for the next week but there's actually none left!! Btw ur Disco looked really fun...I hope you didnt do ur robotic dance moves?!

    Nothing new here, still cold :( But F leaves for Boston on the 16th for a few days so guess who's moving back home? Wish you were here it would have been giggles galore :(

    Miss you lots, I went westies very quickly this morning and saw loads of cute stuff...oh where are you when I need you most!!

    I look forwrad to hearing from you...xxxxxxx

    ShuShu xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  23. for Robbie Coates Alpha 4
    Lovely to get your email and to hear that phase 1 was such a brilliant experience, hope the next is as good. You probably didn't get your letter before you left fieldbase as your arrival and departure was a bit sooner than I was anticipating and I dont suppose airmail to C R. is that speedy. anyway it'll be there for your next return, hopefully with another. I bought a (new) car at the weekend, with great help from Uncle Julian, and take delivery next weekend! I finally return to work this week,and now feel properly ready for it. Brilliant result in cricket against South Africa and Man U have lost 3-1 today. Kitty fine. Hope you haven't lost anything yet! Enjoy it all. Love mum xxx

  24. For Jessica Bridge-Dunk (Delta 3 I think now ?)

    Hi little one

    Was so nice chatting - and seeing you - on FaceTime yesterday. You should have seen some of our fellow customers in Nero as Mum and I were shouting and looking into a mobile phone ! We were saying yesterday Mum did not have a phone in her house just over 30 years ago and here we are, communicating and seeing each other across the world and for free ! That's technology for you !

    Had a chilled day - well, not entirely chilled - we went for a 12 mile bike ride to the cafe which was good. Weather was nice, if a bit cool. But crisp and sunny. Saw some swans where a flood has developed by the road and lots of pigs and piglings (oh no its piglets isnt it !) on our way home.

    Then watched Boardwalk Empire and Mum watched Wild at Heart. But think she prefers it when you watch it with her - think something serious happened at Leopard's Den with Duplessy tonight but couldnt tell you what !

    Hope the next phase is really good fun. Love you lots and lots Dad xxx

    For: Phil 'Grogeous' Wood - Alpha Romeo 1

    Hello there my gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous fiance!
    How are you doing baby? Hope the trek's going amazing well and you're loving every second of it :-) Ohhhh have you seen any monkey's yet - don't forget to bring one home with you please ;-)

    Ahhhh wicked seeing some more piccies of you on the website, hahahaha you look great with hooters baby ;-) Ohhhh finally managed to download your piccies when I got home last night - definitely stocking up the bank baby ;-)

    Had a wicked weekend in Wales, didn't stop laughing the whole time - it was just Zoe, Jane, Matt and me in the end, we're already planning our next session - London bound karaoke session for Kate's 40th (Jane's Kate). Jane and me are going to go and see Kit and Kiera later this month, just need to sort a date out, so that'll be lovely to spend some time with them both too. Ahhhh bumped into Chooper in the pub - he's back for a few weeks before heading off again so was wicked to meet him.

    Am now going into social semi-retirement, really need to get my head dans le books, so going to be pretty boring for the forseeable future :-)

    Ohhhhhh also have been sent some details of an amazing wedding venue in France, my mate went to a wedding there and said it was amazing, going to give them a call to see if it has an amazing price to it too ;-) Will keep you posted baby!

    Take care of your gorgeous gorgeous self baby, keep those boots on, chin up and you know the rest ;-) Missing you like crazy, it's more and more every day, ohhh and loving you more and more every day too - 132 sleeps to go, all my love, forever yours, Laura xxxx

    For Hannah Leach in Alpha Romeo 2

    Oi OI han han, hope you are still having an aMAEzing time out in Costa Rica. Got back on friday and it's taken me 3 days to understand how this blog thing works and when I did finally figure it out realised I was on the Borneo expedition- I realised after writing a lovely comment to you(classic classic mae mae). So weird not waking up next to cockrels and turkeys at 5am and carol asking me if I want juice. Your group looks awesome although pretty sure I didn't speak to half of them meaning that half of them aren't worth talking to.
    Had the most perfect double cheeseburger in san jose airport but my stomach has been rejecting normal food for the past 3 days so still haven't got to enjoy the delights of being at home--San Marquena's final attack on me.
    Hope the skit went alright, I've been checking the blog way too often-still convinced I'm a part of it all. Saw a rather dashing photo of you covered in luminous paint--I feel the yellow just completes the hannah look.
    Also, reading through some of the spanish vocab you gave me, unfortunately I never got to use most of them-'Ay, que grande es!' but hopefully you can---barley was it?
    I'm sure you're missing my thunderbird eyes and constant ' Hey, hey hannah-where you going? Hey hannah wait up' as much as I'm missing the ray-bans and shovelling antics.
    Did someone say bath?

    ANywho, will write again soon. Mae Chester-Jones xxx

    For Caroline Murray in Alpha Romeo Four

    As much as it will pain everyone around you when they see you have yet another stack of comments, I couldn't resist writing to you.
    Having been back for three days I am slowly adjusting to life without turkeys, cockrels and carol asking me if I want juice.
    Watched Goldmember again and heard every sentence in your voice.
    The long flight from san jose was not the same without your little ginger head next to me reading Sky Mall. Hope you are enjoying jungle camp and have stopped being a complete cas-a-vac.
    Jokes group as well- alpha 5 elite members.
    Missing you way too much!! xxx Mae Chester-Jones

  30. Mae Chester-Jones7 March 2011 at 06:42

    For Michael Buie

    Hope you are having a good time on trek although the alhpa five in me resents that you have moved on to a new group (the same goes for Mo, Alette and Andres). My stomach is completely rejecting british food so still haven't had that first piece of gammon, apparantly San Marquena is having one final joke on me. My mum is worried about the extreme amount of complexes I have returned with--just so you know I have perfect knees.

Missing you my husband and hope you're enjoying my mosquito net/still coming out with some hilarious-alette-quotes. xxx Mae

    Do hope that you are comfortably in your new abode. Not much enthusiasm for the snakes this end. Watch out for them! Everyone here thrilled to hear news of you, and edited highlights have been passed on. John, Sarah and Tony, Tricia and Granny and Grandad all send their love and have looked up your photos on the Blog. We have nearly finished painting and hope that you will approve the new look. Number one is happy!
    Just now waiting for the next instalement of you in the jungle. Do hope that you get to see some interesting wildlife. Keep eating and keep safe!
    All our love Mum and Dadxxxxxx

    He schatje wat leuk al die foto's die ik steeds te zien krijg ook nog van je vorige trip, ziet er heel specta uit helemaal die spin....niet in je slaapzak hoop ik. Met het werken dat je nu doet zal je nog wel meer spieren ontwikkelen.Hier alles toppie, zaterdag 5 jr.Zink gevierd was een goeie dag!verder nu lekker zonnetje en het weekend weer een paar daagjes skien met Stork en Egeler en de boys naar Omi.
    Schatje hou je taai! kussssssssssssss

  34. Mags Chilaev (former Delta 5, now serving the turtle species somewhere in Camaronal, latitude: unknown...)

    Maggita, your brief email met my 3 week-long expectations about as well as Mao's cultural revolution met his, after the failure of the great leap forward (I got the highest 1st for my essay!!)...not to diverge from my original message: in non-historical terms, this means that it was fairly disappointing... why oh why have you not acquired a Costa Rican sim card, we have no idea how your life is unfolding, checking for raleigh updates is the most tormenting thing in the world!
    Donaldina (still, faithfully, though just a TINY bit apprehensive, perturbed and trepidatious...) xxx

  35. Message for Ian ter Haar, Alpha Romeo 3

    Grote zoon,

    Wat was het fijn je stem te horen tijdens je overstap naar je 2de project. Of je een prachtig feest hebt gehad hoef ik niet te vragen, je staat groots op de blog foto. Zoon, ik ben ape trots op je dat je op deze manier je tussenjaar invult. Ga je niet lastig vallen met wat hier gebeurt, je hebt het druk genoeg. Alles wel. Broeder Derek doet z'n best, maar de motivatie die jij opgebracht hebt om 5 en 6 VWO in 1 jaar te doen, is nog even verder weg. Hij heeft het goed en geniet van z'n puberteit. Inkie stuurt haar omhelzing. Veel en mooie momenten in je 2de avontuur, ik volg je dagelijks.

    Omhelsd, Pap

    For Rose Ashbourn was Delta 4
    Just thought I would remind you it is pancake day tomorrow! Not sure if you will get to have any or have anything you can toss them in, but hope you get to have some at some point! Looking forward to seeing the blog and pictures of the new group you are in.

    I am in Southport tonight. It has been a beautiful sunny day. Was lovely yesterday when Dad and I did a short bike ride before going down for a late lunch with Sarah and the boys for her birthday at the pub. I will try to put a picture in my next letter!

    HOpe you are still having fun. XXX Mum

  42. For Jessica-Bridge-Dunk.Was Delta 6, now Alpha 2 or 3...
    Hi Bunny,
    Have had Dad working from home so this is the first chance I have had to write a message.
    hope you are settling in to your latest project and that you are well and happy!
    Have made two Fitness loaves today.We have nearly eaten the first one with lots of lovely lentil soup.
    I was hoping to see some pics of your group and what you had been up to today but can imagine that the people who do it have had a lot going on getting you all away to your various destinations.
    Rebecka did her talk on Steiner education today for the third year students and it sounded like it went well which is good. They even gave her some flowers.
    I am going to take my hot water bottle to bed with me as it may be -6 here during the night; probably colder in our house....
    Good job you are not here as the library is being completely renovated and today I thought they were coming through the wall, the drilling was so noisy.
    Tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday so I will be making pancakes.Really miss you and Rebecka watching with your knife and fork at the ready eating them faster than I could make them! Am sure Daddy will manage a few though.
    Well it is late and I am at work in the morning so I better get my hot water bottle and go to bed.
    Lots of love and even more kisses. Keep that wound clean. Your Mummy x

  46. Hannah Leach Alpha Romeo 2
    Roo - Expect you are well underway from one side of Costa Rica to the other on foot - sounds like hard but awesome work. Everyone loved the blog update last week and it has gone viral amongst family and friends. Can't imagine how good shoers and electricity felt after three weeks without them - they will never be taken for granted again!
    Back in the UAE as of last night with Mum for a few weeks. Thomas is back from Amsterdam apparently without being arrested which is a plus.
    Enjoy the views - Pura Vida chicita.

    Hi Darling

    Very excited to hear about the next stage of your adventure. Can't believe what a long way you are walking. You'll be super-fit by the time you return.

    Dad and I just back from freezing weekend in London. Shopped in fancy boutiques in St James's, played tourist and partied - you'd have been proud!
    Did some celeb spotting in Emirates lounge - lots of writers and broadcasters on their way to Dubai for literary festival - acting like they were on a school trip!

    Back to work for Dad and golf for me - 3 pars today - YES!

    Thomas just back from w/e in Amsterdam.

    Looking forward to seeing more photos of you and your new gang.
    Hugs and kisses

  48. Edward Smart Alpha 4
    Great to have your email to know you are OK, although we thought you looked fine on the blog pictures. Hope the letter arrived. In case the next one doesn't reach you in time have a memeorable 19th birthday on March 15th.HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Thinking of you lots. love Mummy xx

  49. For Roberto Ulloa (PM Alpha Romeo 2): Cariño... I hope this reaches you in time. Have been rather busy this past week with events that we're helping to organise. We launched a movie trailer today which was a great success but so exhausted at the moment.
    I hope your feet are doing well. You must be super fit by now. Two treks back-to-back?? Incredible!
    So I called Hostal SUE, Bogota and made a booking. I didn't have to make any advance payment but I have to contact them 15 days before I arrive.
    No me cuentas cuando vas a volver a fieldbase. Cuando regresaras yo estare en Singapur. voy estar alli desde Marzo 21 hasta Marzo 23. No se si podemos hablar por Skype?? You know what? I didn't go for mi clase Espanol last week. I got lazy. The teacher is not very effective because he's going too fast and only one or two students are talking. I guess I'm just too slow :( but I reckon I'll be able to pick up when I'm in South America.
    Anyway, this is becoming too long a message. Missing you (as I know you are too ;)) and counting the days... xxx M

    For Phil 'Scrumptious' Wood - Alpha Romeo 1

    Hey baby

    How are you doing gorgeous? I hope you and the crew are all keeping really well and having an amazing time. How are your little dancing feet doing? Hope they're all good with all the trekking and no one's suffering with blisters.

    It's Shrove Tuesday today baby, and that can only mean one thing - PANCAKES!!! I guessed you wouldn't be able to make them in the jungle so I made one for you, I also ate it for you too ;-) I went for a straight forward, no messing sugar and lemon bad boy, had the bin the first one as it turns out my flipping skills aren't up to much and it pretty much got demolished! That will have to be your job next year baby ;-)

    Thinking of you AAALLLLLLL the time and always trying to picture where you are, can always see your gorgeous smiling face :-)

    I love you so so much baby, missing you like crazy, can't wait to be in yours arms again, take care gorgeous.

    Forever yours xxxxxx


    Holaaaaaaa Alette,

    Yesterday I tried to send you a message through this system but must have done something wrong as I don´t see it anywhere. ¿Como estás? Great picture. Amazing experience Alette so enjoy to the most. Hope to hear all about it when you come to Ibiza in the summer. José and Yaiza send you lots of love and me too. Un abrazo fuerte, Borah xxxxx

  55. Lara Frankel - Delta 5 (old)

    Hi Lala - I hope you are settling in well to your new project. I read a little about the previous team in El Rodeo - it´s sounds like an amazing project to be a part of. I have the same Spanish teacher from week 1 and she is really good, so I am happy. My secret project is also going well, in as much as I have nearly completed the review and have drafted my report. I am going to head to Isla Ometepe next weekend, then back to San Jose and home! Back to the real!! Thinking of you. Lots of love. Jx

  56. For Tom Fear Alpha Romeo 4
    HI Tom
    It was great to get your e.mail letting us know that you'd arrived and were enjoying and I hope that is still the case.
    Sid's leg is getting better....Amy Greenbank's boyfriend who's a vet says it's a pulled tendon. He said Sid needs to rest...that's not easy as there is always a pesky bird or chuck to chase and Sid isn't prone to sitting around and doing nothing.
    Kev and dad have been working on the yurt deck all's coming on well now, but kev did look exhausted when he left tonight. Dad is a hard taskmaster!
    Gran has been in charge of keeping the workers fed and watered but by the time she's walked the length of the field with two cups of tea there's precious little left to drink! So thirsty workers.
    Had a great meal tonight with Mary and Kev....although expect your food has been really good too!
    Oh the way did I mention we'd rented out your room?
    Just kidding but it is a good idea!
    We're looking forward to hearing about your jungle experience.
    Anna has been looking at the blog and commented on your happy face in the group photo!!! SMILE....if only for us!
    Lots love....mum and dad and gran xxx

    I do hope this gets to you somehow for Friday (have sent cards but who knows when you'll get them). Have a wonderful Birthday how ever you spend it doing things that you will probably never do on your Birhday again. Mark's making your cake today so it will be waiting for you (duly covered in icing!!) Missing you loads and will find Friday very strange, will drink a toast to you in the evening (any excuse!). Have a great time and can't wait to see and hear how the project is going. All my love Mum

    Hola flaco!! Esperamos que esta vez no se laven en la lavadora los papelitos de los mensajes.
    Gracias a Dios que ya está bien del ojo y que ya está con toda la pata para darlo todo en la construcción de esa escuelita que tanto necesita la gente de Alto Coen. Que maravillosa experiencia. Primero se conoció a sí mismo y ahora que está lleno de alegría y ganas de vivir, ya puede darlo todo por ayudar a otros, a los que más necesitan, los pueblos indígenas son los verdaderos cuidadanos y dueños en cada país. Tratelos bien y haga su mejor esfuerzo por ellos.

    Fue muy alentador y gratificante poder verlo y sobre todo abrazarlo y sentirlo, saber que estaba tan feliz nos alegró el corazón.

    Te amamos mucho hijo, que Dios te bendiga y te cuide cada día en esta aventura. No olvides en las noches, en las mañanas, en cada momento, agradecer a Dios sus bendiciones, el estar en esta expedición es una de ellas.

    Besos y abrazos!!!!!

  60. To Cat Ewins - Alpha Romero 2
    Hi Baby Girl, mummy here (now who's embarrassed!)
    It has been quite interesting speculating on how you are coping on your trek but I'm sure you are doing well as you always do.
    Not much to report from home, I managed to start your car the other day and at first thought the battery was flat but it was fine. As usual you left it practically empty so I can't really start it up too often now can I (Ha!)
    Peter and I are stil getting to the gym 3 times a week and hopefully you will see the results of our efforts when you come home. Woober has now decided that she isn't gonna let Jasper clubba her around anymore and actually fought back a couple of times which was quite funny to see. The good news is that the eye hospital have now discharged me from the care as the tests showed nothing major wrong which is a relief at least. Please can you post blogs a bit more frequently if possible as it would be nice to hear more about what it happening with your group. There isn;t much else to report for now so I'll sign off. It's funny, although a month has gone by, it seems a lot longer since you were here. Love you
    Mum and Peter

    For Alice Wadsworth Phase 2 Alpha Romeo 1

    Dear Alice,
    It was great to see the picture of you and your team on the website - actually there in Costa Rica ! Hope the trek has got into its stride and that you are enjoying yourself.
    We are missing you terribly back in London but for the first few days we had a lovely reminder from your blackberry's alarm at 645 every morning. Bless. Amazingly, sue was the one who worked out how to switch it off. I was about to eat it.
    Spring is struggling to get through here with a few blue skies after the greyest winter on record - and today we are off to burwash for a couple of weeks or so. All looking great there especially your curtains which sue put up yesterday. Been listening to new elbow , Noah and forthcoming Patrick wolf albums. All very good in different ways. Hope you have everything you need - look after yourself because we love you and don't forget to hang up that sleeping bag !!
    Drop us a line when you can.
    Love mum and dad xxxx

    Hi Wellard ! Glad to see you successfully completed the Guancaste Trek on Phase 1. We never doubted it ! Have a great time (slightly less strenuous?) with Alpha Romeo 3 in the B.C. National Park. Again, keep taking the 'photos. You are doing superbly well and we are so very proud of you. We can't wait to see and hear from you again. Our birthdays came and went- another year gone - and we are now starting to plan our own epic adventures. Will tell you all when we see you. Continue to have a great time. It is immensely challenging but very rewarding and can be nothing but good for you and your future aspirations. Take care. We look forward to hearing for you soon. Lots of love from Mum and Dad. xxxxxxx

    Happy Birthday. Hope you have/had a lovely day. It will be strange not seeing you on your birthday. Checking blogs daily to see what you are doing in Nicaragua and hope to hear shortly.

    Hello Darling,
    Just back from work but Dad called to tell me your brilliant results so that was fantastic news and I am so proud of you and pleased for you. Thank goodness that chapter is over! All now just excitements to look forward to. I hope the excitements on the trek are good ones, not scary ones! and that you're surviving. I can't believe how far you have to go: OMG how fit you'll be. I could never do it. Counting the days until we speak to you again and looking out for more photos on the blog. Dad is quite keen to get you all doing a padi course in the summer in Aus.... will you have already done one? Miss you loads. lytmd Mumxxx

    Hello!! Como esta la princesa de Costa Rica?! Hm? Espero que genial, tengo el presentimiento de que la estas pasando mejor en esta etapa que en la primera. Yo te he enviado mensajes y te he llamado pero esta muerto. Ya llevamos una semana sin hablar y como 1 mes y algo de no vernos, y claro, dormir un poco mal a vuelto..
    Esta semana entramos a clases, he ido solo a tres, y tengo buenos profes se supone. Ya termine el último trabajo del que te hablé. Hasta hoy voy a ver a K para que me de tus notas :) ya quiero leerlas para sentirte más cerca, me haces mucha falta tonti..
    He estado haciendo bastante ejercicio desde hace como 2 semanas. Volví a jugar futbol, 3 partidos después de tanto tiempo de no darle, el primero aceptable, el segundo lo jugué ridiculamente mal, pero ayer estuve mejor jojo. Caliento bien y me hecho dem cofal jajaja.
    Tengo pereza de ir a la u y toparme a todo el mundo. SOLO TE QUIERO VER A TI! VUELVE YA POR FAVOOR! Cuidate mucho. Te amo duni

    You're just too good to be true.

    You'd be like heaven to touch.

    At long last love has arrived.
    And I thank God I'm alive.
    You're just too good to be true.
    Can't take my eyes off you.

    I love you baby, and if it's quite all right,
    I need you baby to warm a lonely night.
    I love you baby.
    Trust in me when I say:
    Oh pretty baby, don't bring me down I pray.
    Oh pretty baby, now that I found you, stay.
    And let me love you, oh baby let me love you,...

    Phil 'Scrumdidlyumptious' Wood - Alpha Romeo 1


    Ohhhhh gorgeous, am not liking this, am not liking this at all :-( Had spent last night when I got in from college looking at wedding venues, getting very very VERY excited, then got woken up this morning with a text from Zoe saying about the tsnumai alert!! I hadn't even realised anything had happened and turned the news on.

    I spoke to a very lovely lady at Raleigh (Sophie) who was very reassuring and said about all the procedures that are in place and asked which project you are on and said you're fine and are high up - I asked very nicely if they could keep you high up please! I hope everyone's OK baby, am keeping my eyes firmed set on the bbc news and am trying not to freak out.

    Hope you're having an incredible time and are seeing amazing amazing sights and having a wicked giggle too, ohhhhh what I wouldn't give to hear your voice now!

    Am going to keep looking at wedding venues tonight - Rupe's about to pop with excitement too - thought I'd go through it with Rupe and narrow it down then send you a smaller list to have a look at when you've finished your projects, ohhhhh they look ace baby! Ohhh also have been reading up and you only have to live there for 6 weeks before hand to actually get married there, aparently it's really common for peeps have a registry wedding in the UK then have a blessing and do your vows in France and use that as your main event, reception etc... I'll fill you in when you're back at base camp all safe and snug.

    I love you so so much baby, missing you insanely! Stay safe baby.

    All my love, forever yours

    Your future Mrs Wood xxxxxxxx

    For Fabienne ouwehand (Alpha Romeo 3)

    Fabbbb, wat balen. Sta ik midden in de ah, krijg ik dan eindelijk jou aan de telefoon en val je weg! Ben maar meteen naar huis gegaan in de hoop dat je nog een keer zou bellen. Gelukkig had papa je aan de telefoon gehad en kon me vertellen dat alles goed met je gaat. Wij hadden niet verwacht dat je al weer na een week op het basiskamp zou zijn. Fijn om weer iets van je te horen. Papa heeft je mail nagekeken (197 mails) en Vinea gebeld. In het weekend van 17 juni heb je een training in Friesland. Ook heeft hij je aangemeld op Facebook Fab we hopen snel weer wat foto's van dit project op het blog te zien. We volgen jullie iedere dag.
    Lieverd, een hele dikke knuffel! Xxxxxxxxxxx

  78. TIM NIEHE alpha romeo 3
    Liefste Timmie,

    zo fijn je even te hebben gesproken!
    Je bent nu aangekomen in de jungle.
    Las op de blog, dat er toch een groep voor de zekerheid is geevacueerd...
    Bij Gijs ook alles onder controle, hadden voor de zekerheid de brug en gebied van de stranden afgezet, maar viel reuze mee gelukkig!
    Papa kreeg het opeens even heel benauwd toen het nieuws kwam dat de tsunami en naar Costa Rica ging en naar Californie......
    Begrijpelijk, maar ik had jullie net allebei gesproken...'hoog en droog'
    Geniet van je toch alweer 3e locatie!
    big hug, love you, K,I,A,A,B,B

  85. Para Duni Gonzalez(Alpha Romeo 4)
    Hola dulzura! Por fin hoy puede leer tus cartas!! Ei te amo te amo te amo, claro que me caso contigo cuando quieras! Solo eso quiero! Pasar mi vida entera contigo! Gracias, estaban exageradamente tiernas, te amo 43 veces más ahora, muuuuac!La foto esta genial, te ves lindisima (claro, como siempre :) Te extraño demasiado ah.
    Estuvo raro vernos después de tanto tiempo verdad? jajaj. Estabas extraña, seguro yo también.. pero te veías super guapa eso sí :O)
    Ya faltan pocos días para que vuelvas, espero que todo sea como me escribiste.
    Te mandé un mensaje cuando iba de regreso a San José pero no contestaste, entonces te voy a contar de nuevo(talvez no te llego): un niño de 6 años, Andrei, se sentó a la par mía en el bus y lo primero que hizo fue pedirle permiso a la mamá para ofrecerme un chicle, yo le dí uno también, nos hicimos amigos de inmediato, lo segundo que me dijo fue que me parecía a alguien de una peli, me explicó quién era, era el bandido de Enrredados! jajaja me dió dem risa, y pensé que tú, yali, diego, eka y jonas tenían que haber estado presentes. Luego no paramos de hablar hasta que llegamos a San José.
    Ei me alegré dem cuando te vi, aunque tenía miedo mezclado con inseguridad, pero fue un momento que nunca olvidaré. Lo reproduzco en mi cabeza mil veces al día. Te amo mi vida, solo tu me haces sentir todo lo que necesito.
    Quisiera poder compensarte los malos ratos cuando vuelvas.Tengo que llevarte a comer rico, quiero darte mil besos y no soltarte, quiero llevarte a la playa, quiero dormir con el amor de mi vida en la playa todo rico.
    Besos principessa! Te pup muac muac!

I am learning some grade 3 pieces at the moment and it is sooooooo fun! Me and Matthew have started a dodgeball club and it is soooo tiring but me and Sasha thrashed them all (even the teachers) and both recieved star of the day.(half each!) I hope you have and are having a great time! I hope that your group is as good as last time! Looking forward to hear from you and see you when you get back! I love you loadsxxxxxxxxxxx

    Bet you are still on cloud 9 after hearing about your English result. I am so pleased for you. Julia was too, when I told her.
    Louisa is in Dublin staying with Clare jOy this weekend. No doubt, she has sampled the Guiness and the night life!

    Don't know if you're receiving our messages, maybe we're doing it wrong! Fingers crossed this one will get through.
    Missing you like crazy. Assume you're in the jungle now, hope you're having a fabulous time and keeping well. Gran's laptop is still in it's box, hopefully it will make an appearance soon.
    W.H. drew with Tot. and are out of the zone, but only just! Mai-Ling went to Liverpool and stayed with Ally for 2 nights which seemed to go well.
    That's all for now, hope you receive this message. Keep safe.
    Sending you big hugs and so much love,
    Mum, Dad, Ally and Gran
