That triumphant feeling!!

Kelling, Norfolk, UK

With Trisha at the Cosmo FFF awards

A quick update from Tukland.

On Tuesday night we won Cosmopolitan’s ‘Fun, Fearless, Female’ Award, something Mind nominated us for as we sped across the Gobi Desert. We never thought for a second we would win and be walking down a pink runway clutching a large silver statue. Thanks to Mind for nominating us, to Trisha Goddard for presenting us with the award, and to the team at Cosmo for putting on such a star spangled event. And also to all those handsome barmen who gave us a few too many Mojitos. For more about the event and the award take a look at this month’s Cosmopolitan magazine.

The other big excitement is that we have got ourselves a publishing deal with the fantastic Friday Project (www.thefridayproject.co.uk) who specialise in publishing blogs. Set up last year, they have already produced 28 books including the bestselling Blood Sweat and Tea. Tuk to the Road will be available in your nearest bookshop next June.

Finally, December 12 is fast approaching so roll up, roll up for your RGS tickets. We’re delighted to have the event sponsored by www.thelmaandlouise.com, a new internet venture aimed at female independent travelers. Tickets are selling fast so get in there quick. If you would like a ticket then please make a cheque for £10 out to Tuk to the Road and send it to: Tommy’s Cottage, Hall Yard, Kelling, Norfolk NR25 7EW. Please tell all your friends about it and bring them along too.

That's all for now. Hope to see you on 12 Dec xx

Just read bullyboys comment and I agree that the trophy would look good as a figure head on me. I would be very proud to wear it.
I love my tuk tuk girls.

Heid, you are such a perv, but a funny one. Trisha is such a cool lady, although I'm not sure the feeling is recoprocatedas last tuesday I was a little tipsy and followed her around all evening- poor woman. Hope you're well.

Well done mummy and auntie Ants. we agree that the award is very heavy, Shrimp tried to lift it and gave himself a hernia. Next time we get to walk down the pink carpet, okay? we've got the ferret bling for it.
