Jessica is now in Brazil. Her homecoming won the Australia's Favourite Event award.

"So while all this has been going on back in Australia and since my last update, I've been back to Paris (see pic below) promoting the book launch there, down in the south of France for Mipcom in Cannes, then on to Brazil, where I am now sitting in my room with a view looking out to Christ the Redeemer in Rio De Janeiro!"

Abby's blog has been stuck in Amsterdam for nearly a month. No idea where she is.

Laura continues to post, but right now she's more of a touron. Still not sure that she will allowed to sail west.
