Actually for all my stressing out, we HAVE achieved a lot. Our route has been perfected, the right amount of kilometres and the right amount of days, I won't tell you how many days - some things have to remain a secret. Our flights have been pretty much perfected. We've sorted out how to get Visas for countries that require them, but it's too early to actually apply for them. I've renewed my Passport. We think we've found someone to house sit, and look after the Cat and mow the lawns while we are away. We've even been interviewed by the local Newspaper. And we've got friends that might ride with Niel across Australia and Canada.
We havn't managed to get any Sponsorship though. the lotteries Commission turned us down for Grants funding, because they said we arn't :" benefitting the community", I can't see how - more motivational you could get, but they didn't think so. I just think someone could really benefit from the great advertising we could give them,
There is one thing we really do love about Winter - sitting in front of a roaring fire watching the Tour de France on TV.
