Today went as planned Â Staring early with work to finish off everything and remind people that this is one of the rare vacation slots I take where I will actually be *unavailable*. Â If your server goes tits up while I am in the arse of Scandinavia, good luck with it. Â At 3pm I signed off and started to pack. Â In fairness I had everything I planned to take already in a room, so it was just a matter of chucking 50% of it and packing the rest. Â In the end, I have one pannier for clothing and personal items. One pannier for tools and tech (with space), and the topbox with “what you will need quick access to”. Â I have spare space though. Â I could have left the topbox at home but you never know what will happen and I may regret it, so it comes along.
A friend of my wife couldn’t understand the ability to pack everything for 2 1/2 weeks into the panniers, so I gave her an example of what it would be like to travel with her (hair dryer and straighteners coutsey of Lynne):
So I packed up, showered, got ready, said goodbye to everyone, enabled the tracker and head on the long treck… to Belfast Harbour. Â Yes, day 1 consisted of about 15 miles riding. Â Then after strapping the bike up on the ferry, I have now found myself in the ferry Bar with a pint of stella and some spare time to get things sorted.
Tomorrow, Liverpool->Preston->Harwich and another Ferry to Denmark. Â Onward!!!!!!!
