Bloem, Friend and Family
The final three weeks are here and now the last things we need to sort out before we can get started on time, 1 September!
One thing about this journey, that is totally different from anything I’ve done before, is that my mind is CONSTANTLY thinking about Around 7 Continents. Wondering what routes to take, gear to take with, sponsors, media, visas and maybe one of the most talked items at the moment…. OUR BICYCLES!!
Haha what can I say…. We are going on a cycling adventure around all 7 continents and we are still trying to get our bicycles in Sydney!! Until this point we could not have done anything more about the situation. If everything is going according to plan, the bicycles will be on a ship today.
How will the bicycle cycle? How will it feel to cycle with all the bags? How does it feel to cycle with 45kg on the bicycle? This is just some of the many thoughts im thinking about on an hourly basis!
Had our first goodbye braai in Bloemfontein. Was nice to have most of all the old school friends together next to the nice Bon Fire. There is not many things that can beat a Bon Fire at the river house in Bloem!
Now its a few days of chilling in Stilbaai before we make our final stop in Cape Town! Very exiting times!! Just need to get rid of this flu or whatever it is that is starting to develop!
The next few days will be the days that we will finally go through the gear, electronics, clothing, etc…. Making sure we have all the basics we need. Then a few days in Cape Town to buy the final equipment before we fly next Wednesday!! Can’t believe its here!!!! Time to take on new challenges adventures!!!!!
