      Hi Rob – Abergavenny’s pretty much exactly on my route to Newport, and it would be lovely to drop in for tea or last-minute repairs if you’re around. In fact, let me email you…

    Emily it’s so wonderful reading what you’re up to! I must go to Munich so I can give the river surfing a go; it looked so much fun. When you get a chance you really must give surfing a go; I’m sure you’ll be a natural.
    Hope all going better than well.
    Much love xxMegan

    Do you think fame will change you?
    Is this journey fake, like the moon landings?
    Can you not afford a car?
    Do you miss Noel Edmonds?
    Do you still want back that £20 you lent me?

    Do you reckon your feet are crustier than mine?

    Dear Mrs. Chappell,

    I am a journalist from germany, writing for one of the biggest german daily newspapers, the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” ( I would like to write a story about the cycle couriers in london, and, doing some research for that, I just found your book and ordered it allready. It would be awesome if you would have time for an interview after I have read the book. Do you think that is possible?

    All the best,

    Sebastian Eder
