Today I didn’t do anything dramatic – lots of little jobs in preparation. It’s amazing how many there are of them to do! I was going to cycle this afternoon, but I stayed at home to wait for my parcel as if I hadn’t been here to sign for it, the driver would have taken it away again – my new apparel supplied by Trek, thanks to Stefan Berggren, who used to work with my Dad on the international standards committee. It arrived in less tha a week! I’ll try and find time for a foto tomorrow. The afternoon seemed to be taken up with phone-calls and visiting. Also with my son André’s help I’m trying to set my phone up for internet phoning (VOIP). I didn’t even find time to blog until now. I also received several donations and emails wishing me luck. Many thanks again to all (see thank-you page).
This evening was spent saving all the planned stops with Ovi Maps in my new Nokia N97 mini, so that I can find the lodgings more easily when I get there.
I am really looking forward to the trip.
