Done Deed

Thursday, July 20th, 2006

I am trying to do one thing a day towards the preparation of my trip. So today I bought a one way ticket to Argentina for 30 November 2006. It turned a boring work day into a ‘I can’t believe I am doing this’ heart pounding day.

About a month ago I received an email from Neil in Dublin wishing me luck on my trip. He and his friend Mike are planning to bike around the world in 2008. As I was working in Dublin I met up with them last night once I had finished work. It was lovely to chat […]
