Hey folks,

For my 1000th post (at least the 3rd time i've done my 1000th post - who keeps stealing them? ) thought i should tell you that on Saturday i'm b*ggering off

Yup, i finish in the office on Friday 13th, and then have as much time as i want to do whatever i want, wherever i feel like it (legal and financial issues notwithstanding).

Heading to Croatia For a bit of nothing and relaxing first. After that, it's make it up as I go along time. Proobably involving 6-8 weeks of wandering around with no fixed plan, Then 10-12 weeks crossing Russia and expolring Baikal, Alta, Sakhalin. After that. See what happens, although intend to visit some friends in Japan and also try and do a tour of North Korea. I'm liable to end up in China working in the longer term, but when or if that happens is unknown. Have a few bits of work and some odd ideas planned as well, but all subject to dice rolling and deportation orders

Assuming i make it past Hässleholm in the first place that is.

Some friends have set up a betting shop as to how long it will be before i return to work in Sweden. So far, the guesses range from 3.5 hours to 47 years My friends faith in me is touching....

Have a great trip Rich! You've earned it! Hopefully we'll get some updates on here, if you can tear yourself away from your travels long enough to find an internet café. ;) Don't be a stranger!

Cheers and hugs,
Katie ;)

PS: Gonna hop on a canoe to Canada in your travels?

Best of luck, Rich! Keep us posted, if you can...

Bon voyage Rich!! I'm green with envy!

Um Rich? Did you put in the paperwork with the TP members about leaving? I don't believe that you have been approved for a leave of absence. You will have to fill everything out in triplicate and after every single member has signed it...then and ONLY then, will you be allowed to procede with your travel plans;)

I hope you have a wonderful time, and please try to keep in touch!
Take care Gelli!! You will be missed:)
