I have a friend named Michal staying here at the hostel with me.  Every few days he gets on his bicycle with laden homemade panniers (saddle bags) and sets out for Germany.  He's usually returned by the end of the day.  I haven't seen him in a while so maybe he's finally made his escape.  I need to hang around until the middle of next week for insurance reasons, then I should be out of here as well since my hatch seals arrived today.


  1. regards from Joel in israel. Do you still plan on doing your trip? looks like you have a lot going against you.

  2. Hey Joel,
    It's great to hear from you! It looks like I'll begin paddling on Tuesday. Having lost a month and being out of shape, I don't know how far I'll get. But I'll do the best I can.
    Thanks for asking.
