I like your stories of Akropong, Ghana. My friend Louis comes from Ghana, Eastern Region, he is an Akuapim - and damn, you are completely right - people of Ghana do have style and soul!! I liked to read this. Your nice stories make me lose some of my worries about travelling to Ghana some time in the future. Thank you for spreading such interesting stories about life in Akropong all over the world. Good luck to you globetrotter - if you ever come to Austria, drop me a line. Regards Maria

Dear Ryan, you have some very exciting adventures. Keep the stories coming

Hey mate, the journey is over for me too. Very weird to be back sitting in the same house a year after leaving after so much has happened. Fiji was awesome, really good way to finish the trip, hit the point of just looking around and realising how beautiful life is. Will certainly be there in a couple of weeks when you make it to Melbourne.

Hey man, Welcome home. I will be there soon, well done on a succesful travel. Look forward to those beers on the 14th, might be just you and me but it will be sweet. Also Vics are playing Tassie from 13th to 16th, we should go. We can enjoy the aussie sun the we missed. It is a toastie 2 degrees here, which acctually feels quite warm now. See you in two weeks man. Peace, until then. Ed

After 280 days in 7 countries, my trip is at its end. Im in downtown Bangkok, sitting in a hole in the wall internet cafe, and writing my last entry on here from outside Australia, at least for a while. When Im home ill upload a lot more stories and pictures, but for now this is it. Tonight I get on a plane and fly to Melbourne, and then onto a smaller plane and take the one hour flight back to Mildura, where this adventure began. Ill be in Mildura for a week or two, and I will see everyone in Melbourne who can get along to see me and Ed on February 14th.
This trip has been amazing, the experiences I have had will be treasured forever, the hardships I have faced have taught me many lessons, and I hope to have a beer one day with all you wonderful people I have met on this trip. Its amazing what you can acheive, what you can see, when you dream big and work hard for something.
Thanks to everyone for coming onto this website throughout my journey to see what I am upto. Thankyou to everyone who wrote on the guestbook and emailed me, you kept me going when things seemed pretty tough.
Keep checking the site in the weeks after I get home. Ill put up some pictures of my life in Australia. I made this site so my friends in Australia could see my life overseas, but I would also like to show my friends all over the world a little of my life in Australia.
I thank God for the wonderful world he created, I thank my parents for their incredible support of my crazy adventures, and I thank all the people who opened their hearts to me on this trip, whether it was to give me a place to sleep, to show me around your city, to travel with me for a day or a month, or just to share a meal with a traveller sitting by himself. I set out on this trip alone, but its hardly been lonely. Ive had the world for company.

Got some exiting news for anyone who was in Ghana (especially Ross, Andy and Ed). There are some guys from Ghana staying in m hotel who i have been hanging out with, watching football with. They were so excited to hear I had been to Ghana, and had been to all their home towns (kumasi, Takoradi, Tamale). Even more exciting, two of the guys play for PHOBIA!!!!, and the other guy, John, is the captain of Liberty. I was wearing my PHOBIA bracelet when i met them, so they were stoked. Last night we kicked the football around in the alley behind the hotel, i couldnt believe my luck! Tomorrow they fly out to Thailand for trials with some teams there! two of the guys, bernard amd john, are emergencies for the ghanaian team!

Hello Ryan. While hiding in Melbourne I have been enjoying reading your journal. Please tell no one of this.
2006-01-24 00:00:00 , Melbourne, Australia
Yo bro! Great to read your last entry, very funny - I laughed at it a lot, especially the camel called Michael Jackson.
Now just because I am now engaged doesn't mean that you have to go out and beat it by being offered wives in every country!
All is well in Melbourne. Its KC Butlers 21st on February the 4th and we've been invited but I guess you will still be in Mildura. The theme is "PE Teachers & Schoolgirls". Tessie called me from London last week to say congrats. It was great to have a long chat to her.
Tomorrow is Australia day and it is forecast to be 40 degrees in Melbourne. All of us boys are going lawn bowling in the morning and then having an arvo long BBQ as we listen to Triple J Hottest 100 - a very open field this year.
Anyway mate, looking forward to seeing you soon!

Gidday Nifty, Just checking out the internet at the Wauchope library while Mum and Katie hit the op shops. Great to read your latest entries. Sounds like all that soccer in the yard at home growing up has been an advantage. Travel safely. See you Jan 30 at Mildura Airport. God Bless Love Dad
