Gibraltar, the end of Europe!
Gibraltar. This is where I have decided that the European part of the-walk comes to an end.
You could say that it is the end of part 1. Stockholm to Gibraltar proved to be a bit more than 6000 kms, took almost 9 months (including some breaks) and has left me even more excited about the continuation.
Tomorrow, I will go to the local DHL office in Gibraltar and see if I can ship the Mule straight to Florida, or if it will be easier to send it to Stockholm and onward from there. Then I have to find a cheap flights to Stockholm for myself and try to change mental gears and get ready for 4 weeks of hard work before being able to jet of to the USA and continuing.
It will be very nice to meet friends and family, but these breaks are definitely a bit of a distraction. Nether the less, I need the money and it is strangely enough cheaper for me to fly to Stockholm and then to Fort Lauderdale than it would be for me to fly straight there from here! So I can make the most of it, earn some very welcome money, meet everybody and hopefully have time to write a bit and update some stuff on the site.
Next time I post an update, I will probably be shivering in the cold somewhere in Stockholm….
