R & R in Hertfordshire
Having a lazy day off at my cousin’s place in Bishop’s Stortford. Slept very late, dragging myself up at just after midday. Had a wander arund town an bought a few bits and bobs. Vegged about Paul’s flat and did a bit of stuff on the site. Chatted to my Kenyan based social media organiser who gave me my Twitter campaign instructions! Had a good webcam chat with Margi. Lovely big steak for dinner with a few bo9ttles of beer.
Booked an overnight ferry crossing for Wednesday, from Harwich to the Hook of Holland. I had to book a cabin but this was only a little more expensive than the camp-site in Harwich I was planning to spend the night in. I’ll be in Holland by 8.00 AM on Thursday morning.
As I’ve been pedalling through the UK, Africa has seemed further away than it ever has, as the enormity of the task ahead hits home. It also feels like the journey hasn’t actually started properly. Although I’ve been passing through parts of the country I’ve never been to before it still feels like I’m at home. Hopefully I’ll feel like I’m really on my way when I roll off the ferry on to those lovely flat Dutch roads.
