I am wibbling at the thought of getting a GPS to help me get to my desitnations. I do like the thought of easy transition, but I do so love to stare at maps. It is like Mills and Boon to a 45 year old spinster. Places come, about a thrid alive, and you can see things happening. They never happen this way, but the whole thing is a little excercise in the head that keeps you thinking hard! You don't get that with GPS. I will stick to the map and learn to talk, I think!
I am greeted by a number of different thoughts when I tell people about my trip. It is either "go for it....", "what the hell", or "you selfish bxxtard". I don't deny that what I am doing is very selfish, but for once in a while we need a little "me" time. I have worked very hard over the past eight years to get my business into a good state. I feel, right or wrong, i should cut loose for a month.
To look at a few far flung bits of Europe out of the saddle of Betty isn't too evil an aspiration in my mind. We will see. The road opens in two weeks!
