Things are starting to get real. This time next week ill be at 36,000ft on our Virgin Atlantic airbus, somewhere between here and Honkers. I still cant believe I'm going to Europe ! It's somewhere I have always wanted to go but never thought I would get to.
Our first week of the journey is in Spain and to be honest, I'm nervous. Heard the saying "Taking the Bull by the Horns" ? Well that's exactly what I'm going to avoid when we hire a car in Barcelona and drive up to Pamplona on the 6th & 7th of July for the festival of Sanfermines. We are meeting up with fellow lifeguard and carrier of black cloud, Michael "Mouse" Jenkinson. Mouse is on his own little adventure around Europe in a decked out 15 seater bus. If you see him and his black cloud hovering, just wave and move on quickly. It could get ugly !
We are only staying in Pamplona for one night then heading back to Barcelona to kick back and enjoy everything the second largest city in Spain has to offer. If anyone has any ideas of cool stuff to do in Barcelona please feel free to let us know in the comments section :)
Things are coming along nicely in regards to the UK leg. The lovely ladies at Owl Marketing are sweating away in Manchester's scorching heat (!!!) trying to confirm dates and locations so we can post them up. I can say from 29th July to the 2nd August we are trying to get up to Ireland, it's a country I've wanted to see since I was knee high to a grasshopper. How could you not: IRELAND.
From there we'd shoot across to Anglesey to find Prince Willy. I'd love to shout him a congratulations beer. Watching him tie the knot on the telly gave me goose bumps and I want to pat him on the back and say "Nice one big fella" !
Today I asked Maxi how he was going to handle the language barrier:
So we've been doing our best to work on our English slang? but as you can see we are pretty bad.
Feel free to throw some in the comments section below and we will do our best to practice as much as possible during our 24hrs of flying time !
Anyways I only have 7 days to pack my bags so I better wrap up this blog and get cracking.
He He, (Am I the only one that packs way too early when they're excited about a trip?)
Till next time,
