Life after work and the trips of a lifetime

"We are judged by what we finish, not by what we start." - Anonymous

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Woo hoo! What a ride!..attributed in this form to either Maxine Cartoon or anon

Things I have learned over the past month....

  • Baby wipes are great, chain, hands..the works.  Makes you wonder about the poor baby does it not!!!
  • Some Italian camping grounds (?the cheaper ones) dont provide toilet paper..strictly BYO..a fact one only forgets once.
  • Totally unexpectedly.... squat toilets abound.
  • Consideration to cyclists moves closer to an "Australian level" when near a big city..although still far better than what we're used to.
  • For some unfathomable reason some ski hotels dont have drying rooms

  • Extended climbs of up to about 12% are now within my grasp 
  • Short bursts of steeper are doable 
  • however when faced with 19% 5 hours into a ride, I tend to throw in the towel
  • I still can't resist snaffling ALL the soap and shampoo freebies when staying in a hotel..even when I really dont need them...and I can't now pretend they're for the kids to play shop with!!
