A quick update:
END OF WORLD TOUR!!!
OK, so I’m a bit behind on my blog (as usual), but I thought you’d all like to know my ‘Round The World’ Motorbike Ride is officially finally over…
Since my last post, I rode up though Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Italy, San Marino and France.
I have mixed feelings on this ending, as I suppose most travellers do. On the one hand, it’s great to see friends and family again, and great also to have completed such an amazing journey, but on the other I miss it! :). But I really do realise how lucky I was to have been able to do so.
So, I arrived back in (not so sunny) England on Monday 24th November after 2 years and 2 months away (not counting a couple of quick returns for 2 of my brother’s weddings).
It was cut a little short (sorry Spain!) by a lucky job offer I received at late notice starting this Friday 28th Nov 2014, but it’s in Malaysia, so at least I can escape the British winter!
I stopped by WaterAid UK London office on the way home and met Senior Fundraising Officer Emma Blake (pictured sitting on the bike) and the team.
So far my kind sponsors have donated £8,430 for this great cause, but I’m still hoping to meet my £10,000 target…. Many, many thanks to all those who’ve helped and supported me during my trip (too many to mention, but you all know who you are!), and if you haven’t sponsored me yet but would like to, it isn’t too late!
I still intend to catch up with the blog soon (for anyone who may be missing it..) and the book will be out by Xmas…. 2045 at this rate!
Thanks for reading, safe travels and have fun! 🙂
