  1. hello tony. had a look at the website and think its great. you really have seen the signs also read a chapter of your book and think the book will be really interesting and a hit when you start selling it. keep in contact and let me know how you are getting on. great meeting you and keep having fun.

  2. Ironically because you cannot see the places you have travelled, it is the very people and moments (days or months) with them which has given you the richness of your accomplishments.
    What you have done is indeed amazing, but aren’t we all blind and deaf in some way or another!

  3. Hey Tony,

    This is Daniel Kim, the traveller you met at Geneva’s hostel. You were rooming with an aussie guy whose name I can’t remember and he introduced me to you.

    Well, it was really great chatting with you at the pub that night and I’m really glad that I wrote down your website. It’s really amazing. Everything you’ve done is incredibly inspirational. I hope to read your book soon! Can I still get a signed copy one day? or will I have to pay more? In the meantime, I’ll keep looking at the extracts and pictures!

    How was your bungee jump? I hope the rest of your travels are going well. And I also hope your surgery goes smoothly and that you’ll be travelling in no time!

    Maybe our paths will cross again someday. Until then, thanks for being you. You rock.

    Daniel Kim

  8. Hi Tony.

    I work for Hostelling International in Iceland, would it be OK if I linked to your blog in a news item on our website,, so our past and future visitors could read about your experience of Iceland?

    I hope you are enjoying your current travels,

    I’m from a spanish TV, specifically a program aimed at deaf people. Could contact us for a possible story? Thanks

  10. Hey Tony,

    How’s it going? I’m glad you finally got your Iceland exploits up there. Whilst going through my pics this evening, I found a couple of us eating at the fish restaurant in Reykjavik with the Swedish waitresses. Let me know if you would like them for your site.

    All the best,

    [the Scottish guy]

  14. Hola guapoooooo!!!! how´s it going?? I hope you got home safely and everything is allright. Here in Sevilla everything is still the same, Loretta is working in the bar, still drunk from yesterday, Marco is cooking crazy mexican pasta (which is pasta with everything you can find) and I am at reception trying not to fall asleep. I hope you still have the little pig and that it brings you more luck the rest of the year than for the first days. take care, andrea

  15. Toni!!!
    Que pasa amigo!!!
    Just wirtting to say hi. Me and Pierre Lluvie, the monkey, are going to miss U.
    Keep in touch

  16. Hola guapo!

    this is just to keep the word I gave you near the Cathedral in Barcelona: that I would leave a message on your website. Meeting you on Christmas Day in front of the biggest cathedral you have ever been in cannot have been just a coincidence. I was touched and honoured to have you by my side – it just made my Christmas day. I had never seen so much around me before. Being with you made me more aware of things – I guess the real blind are the ones who pass past the same tree day by day without being aware of it.

    Happy New Year, Tony!:D

I’ve trawled your site, read about all your adventures and stories, i’m truly envious, and astonished by your travels. I eagerly await your written account of Iceland. Anyway, i’ve subscribed to your blog and will keep track of your progress.

  25. Hi Tony! It’s Elizabeth, your friendly horseback riding tour guide. I often rant about you to other tourists who are panicked or generally insecure (or not!) and often think about your awesome adventures.
    I’m enjoying the travel pictures and book extracts on your website. Looking forward to seeing the Iceland images!
    All the best,

  26. Hi Tony, Luke – that poof from the Blue Lagoon in Iceland.

    Hope you had a good time, and it was lovely to cross paths with you that day. It’s cool to se that you just get on with it, like your approach.
    Did you get the towel back??!!

    Wherever you are now, all the best with the transplant.
    Keep in touch mate –


  27. Hi Tony,

    It’s been a long while since we last spoke. Hope you are fine and dandy and cultivating a good brum accent. Saw the your coverage in the local press recently about your latest adventures. Your good old mum said that I should drop you a line, so here it is.

    Still slogging away at Woodspring, running the Hospital Information Service. Was hoping to go to New Zealand to visit Fiona this year but that will have to wait so we can save up some more pennies. Managed a week on Exmoor camping and walking this summer and long weekends in Brighton.

    How’s the course going?

    Next time you are in the Weston super mud drop us line and we can try and meet up for a drink.

    Take Care

    I work in your home, Weston-super-Mare, and now work as a journalist in the area.
    I wondered if you would mind sending me a email to talk about doing an interview soon? I think people would love to hear of your adventures since you grew up in our humble town.
    Look forward to speaking to you Tony.

  34. Hi Tony,

    I really enjoyed browsing your website and am highly impressed with your story.

  37. Hey Tony,

    Great site! It only seemed like yesterday that we were on that Navmag ship in Chile. Was such a pleasure to meet you then and to still be in contact hearing about the rest of your travels.

    Keep up the inspiration tales!

  38. Great web site. Love the photos. Although I am Tony’s Mum, and therefore slightly biased, I do think Tony is an amazing person and am so very very proud of him. May he continue to see the world his way – what other way is there???
    Lovely to read all the comments from Tony’s friends.
