Journey

We are now in the middle of France at a little roadside hotel. We have made good time and already done over 500 kms, only another 900 to do tomorrow. Got to get to Barcelona by 9pm, should be easy the car is going well.

It's been great chatting with Alan he had a really tough day yesterday, so today we have been just chatting and travelling.

There is something about a journey that I feel is good for you, the sense of moving forward, the car is better for this than the plane. You are more physically engaged with the process.

We got chatted up by a gay guy at some service station, he was more into Alan than me, but we dodged off really quick.

Paris was good, but intense, it's just so busy and its a total relief to get round it!

By the way a little book I have been working on called "writing on the wall" had it's US release this week. I'll write more about it next week.

Glad to hear you're having fun. Good job that Al wasn't wearing his pink vest when that guy was around. Ask him how to spell his name!

Have been really tempted to ditch my jeep and buy a baby blue volkswagon van just because of the road trip potential! My dad just bought a new one that has seats that fold down into a bed. Setting out on my own roadtrip last week of term. Continue to enjoy yours. Praying that God blesses you and alain with many more camp-like adventures! It's comedy reading them!
