1 month to go

Posted by on 4 August 2012

Well, there are 15 days left and then starts my 16 week leave. I will have 1 ½ week to prepare, pack and most probably to panic. Then we are off to France.

Sarah’s parents are having a party as they are married for 50 years by then. And once my hangover is withdrawn to a suitable driving-level I will be on my way.

Meaning that the 2nd or 3th of September I will be heading through Belgium.


Things left to do on the bike:

1)      Fit new tires

2)      Change clutch fluid

3)      Change rear break disk

4)      Sync the throttle-bodies.

5)      Change Engine oil and oil filter.

6)      Reinforce the pannier frame

Most of that will be done on Friday the 24th of August with my father.


My Russian lessons are going in Vostok-rocket  tempo and, well….,  I learned more Russian in the last 10 days then I did in the rest of my 33 years.

But so far the lessons are great fun. My pronunciation is still way off so I hope I will not hurt to many ears.


More and more people are subscribing to the newsletter and I am getting my first international visitors on the website. Which is cool.

More to come………soon

    Hoi Steven, ik zag dat mijn mail maar gedeeltelijk is overgekomen. Ik schreef dat ik me een beetje dubbel voel over jouw avontuur. Enerzijds ben ik blij voor je dat het nu bijna eindelijk gaat beginnen en anderzijds vind ik het ook wel een angstig avontuur. Ik voel de spanning met je mee als ik je website lees. En ook voel ik me erg opgetogen dat je dit nu gaat doen. Het lijkt me zo’n belangrijke levenservaring
    de rest van het verhaal heb je al ontvangen
    nogmaals Bisous
