Summer has finally arrived to Ireland today! The sun is beating down from a cloudless sky and "Penny Lane" is going around and around in my head. It's hard to be in bad form about anything on a day like today!
I'm in a great mood anyway because my brother has decided he's coming to Spain with me in September. We're gonna hire a car and drive from the north to the south of the country. I was pretty happy going alone and just doing my thing, but it should be a great laugh now.
Plus, it seems like the planets are coming into alignment re my RTW trip. Everything should be good to go by January! I'm getting lots of good tips from Anne about some of the countries in SE Asia, and I'm starting to compile a little book of addresses and things not to miss, etc. I've also been doing this on India for quite a while as well. Just reading them is enough to keep the flame burning for the next few months.
Also, there are plenty of people to meet along the way. Will definitely be hooking up with Dave in Vietnam and Hien in KL for a while. If Rich is still tormenting the Chinese when I get there, I'll hopefully catch up with him for a bit too. Once I get to Oz there are a few friends down there, and I will drag James and Peter out for a few beers if possible. Myself and Anne are either gonna meet in Peru or Fort Lauderdale, AND IF I EVER REACH CANADA Tway is gonna be stuck with me for a while. Lol!! cos let's face it, we agree on everything from washing powder to strategies for world domination. I'm so excited just thinking about it, and it's not as far away as it all seems at all.
What is it about when the sun comes out! The world seems full of possibilities again.
