There is now just one month to go! This time next month I will have (hopefully) ticked off country number seven where, if all goes to plan, I should have time for an hour or so of rest. I’m planning either a bit of sightseeing or to get an airport lounge pass for some peace and quiet and to recharge phone batteries etc. I’ll probably go with the latter!
Preparations for the trip are currently going well. Most of the flights and trains are now booked and around a dozen new apps have been added to my phone so that I can store and quickly buy tickets on the go.
I’ve even bought a new pair of trainers! I’m going to have to run the first kilometre of the route and cover the final 4km (2.5 miles) by foot in a fairly brisk 25 minutes. A marathon it certainly isn’t but it’s meant I’ve had to venture away from the computer and actually get a bit of exercise to prepare for it. Probably no bad thing really!
I’m both very excited and a bit nervous at the moment. I’ve put a lot of effort into the planning but if there’s a delay on the day, there’s only so much I can do about it. The success of this trip is going to be slightly down to luck!
