Where I stayed
So it's mid-January, I have no car and an insurance cheque that will buy me:
A: A chop shop car that will get me to work and back.
B: A flight, digs and lifelong dream trip to New Zealand for 3 weeks with the added bonus of commuting to work on me bike for the next 11 months, come rain, wind, snow, rain, frost, rain, 2 days of sunshine, rain, floods, rain, wind, mud, mud,rain, mud, mud, rain, -9 degrees, rain.
So here I am - 12 hours before I head 12000 miles to the other side of the world. Payback time :-)
Every day, every mile in pouring rain, every river of mud as I showered, every stuggle for breath in the icy dark has been worth it to be here, now. Every moment of a year driven by a single goal that's now close enough to touch. Man, I feel good.
THIS is what life is about. I look forward to sharing it with you.
