I've already spent an hour at the gym doing a Body Attack class this morning but the bright sunshine outside is too good to miss so I nip home to get my walking boots. Then I scrounge a lift to Reading with Ian who is headed in that direction this morning. He drops me off at Thames Valley Park and I set off wrapped up in scarf, hat and gloves as it's also very chilly!

We had amazing burrito by the river before ...
... to text or email him. We had no wifi at our hostel, so we tried going around to random coffee shops and pubs to find Internet so I could get a hold of Stuart, our host. I finally got a hold of him around 730 pm. Knowing we had about a 15 minute train ride out of the city we promptly went to grab our bags from the hospital and left for the tube station.
