I have bought a $5.00 bike helmet from 7-Eleven, knowing that Melbourne leads in the prevention of head injuries because of our helmet laws. I will be the ONLY person cycling in Amsterdam and along canal paths with 'MELBOURNE' emblazoned across my blue helmeted head - but I will be safe! And I have chanced on a gel-filled bike seat cover at Aldi to protect my 'other end'! The clothes as they are will do, so I am set!
And now departure day has arrived. Ian delivers me to the airport for my lunchtime flight.
Can I score an upgrade this time? Wherever you are in a plane, that next section forward always looks so much better...
