Today we are packing our panniers (the bags that go on the bike to hold all our stuff). It is an interesting job, especially since we've never done it before. This will be the first time we have ever gone on a bike trip before.
Excerpt from my diary entry yesterday:
"I am looking forward to the bike trip with a little trepidation. If the weather is amazing and we get awesome tailwinds the whole time, I'll love it. If the weather is not so amazing and we get stuck with strong headwinds, I just hope I'll still love it!"
It will be an interesting new challenge. :) It's often fun to do something you've never done before.
I challenge you, while we are away, to do something you've never done before. It is up to you what that is. It could be learning something new on the computer, it could be writing and presenting your testimony to a friend, maybe it's just that you want to try a flavour of chocolate you've never tried. Whatever it is, jump out of your comfort zone. Do something different. Something you wouldn't have done unless I challenged you to.
I wouldn't be doing this bike trip of my own choosing - I'm doing it for an award (Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award) and I have to do this trip for it. Since I'm doing something I wouldn't normally do, why don't you pick something and do it?
I'd love to know what it is you're doing. Make sure you comment and let me know how it goes. :)
Meanwhile, keep safe, happy and enjoy the weekend!
