Point of no return
18.01.2017 6 °C
Last few weeks, talked about it. Visited some websites of places and hotels to get ideas.
But today is really the start of setting things in motion (not the car yet but at least fix first few items of the trip).
1. Set the date:
Which now 18 Jan.
2. book first hotel in first stop:
No idea what to expect but is around the 800Km mark and I have been told to be a very nice historical city.
One key reason to do this trip is to see real snow. After all those years in hot climates you start thinking opposites so snow has been visiting me in my dreams during the last few years. Shows again that the other functions of my brain - such as memory - have definitely escaped me. I should remember how the days in Poland and Romania were when I lived during other episodes of my life. Winters with -22C and lots of snow to make the traffic and work more than a challenge.
Other good reason is to visit those port cities again where I worked and lived. See people and places, how they have moved in time.
It is time to move. Having been in my house in Belgium for 8 months and retired is too much of the same every day. Time to do some trips in Europe and enjoy driving as opposed to all that flying around in my working days.
This is as far as the plan and objectives go. Time will be flexible from next week. The pace may be fast or slow, add a few days where it is fun.
So for those who will read this - most of what is to follow till back home is also largely a guess to me today. Let us see - come back and visit from the 18th and find out.
