The four of us are off for two weeks in Sweden. We are flying to Stockholm and then driving eight hours into the centre of the country to the Rogen Nature Reserve where we are canoeing around the lakes there for five days. It's going to be a mini-adventure of wild camping, paddling and some walking in the wilderness.
So, I will be quiet for a couple of weeks on the blog but I will be writing it up and catching up on my cycling diaries.
Losing your photographs and your writing has to be one of the worst things that can happen to you. Losing your money, your camera, your netbook and tent poles rank pretty highly in bad things that can happen, beaten only by fatal diseases or being killed by a mad driver.
World cyclist, Peter Gostelow has been cycling through Africa for many months now and he has been writing an exceptionally good blog about his experiences. He has also raised over £11,000 to help fight malaria in the continent and was distributing mosquito nets when he had most of his possessions stolen from his room.
He has asked for help by way of donations to help him get his journey back on the road. Please help him to get going again and raising money for fighting this terrible disease. You can read about his recent experience here and donate to his cause too.
