This life is a gift, you waste it thinking too much and doing too little. Think less and do more be it anything, even to put a bowl of water for birds or to carry yourself across the mountain – nothing is too little and nothing is too much as long as you have a determination in you. Don’t fade away by letting yourself drown in the comfort of your couch or your screens.
It was not that hard knowing what the weather brings. The South seems to be flooded with water and the north beckons to embrace the unseen floods. Decision between a Scotland and Lake District was not that complicated – I am ready to face some extreme conditions but not that extreme too. We will see what the weather will bring but knowing that this is not a car trip but a one on two wheels where the elements of nature keep one soaked in wet for hours and so does to the equipment I want to carry.
In total this shall add me another 700 or so miles to the total tally of reaching 39000miles in about just over a 3years time on my loved soulmate. Nothing keeps up more indulged than a long ride – wet weather – slippery roads and lots of people in their cars who never bother to check their mirrors.
My final plan as it seems to be for the most of the trip > London – Whitby(North York Moors) – Keswick(Lake District) – Hope(Peak District) – North London(Hertfordshire).
Sounds good enough given I am not just riding up north but hiking, meeting Michael , taking pictures and collecting stories(The best part about my travelling). Anything to do with pictures without story telling is just like having sex without even seeing the face of the person you just had sex with. Ha Ha Haaa – that said – I shall be off from the web and this virtual existence(Another of the things I love the most – away from the virtual world).
