At 0727 on 10th September an Intercity Express will depart from Gare du Midi, Brussels. Via Düsseldorf Airport I will end up later in the day in the 35ºC sunshine of Egypt, ready for a week of diving in Dahab. From there it’s to Berlin for the inline skate marathon, to London for 3 days of training, then back to Berlin (and Pinneberg) to see how an election works in Germany. It’s one of the oddest journeys I have ever undertaken (how do you pack for diving, skating, training and watching an election?) but I can’t wait. I’ll post observations of the trip here whenever I can, and normal service on the blog will resume at the start of October when I return.
If you’re going to be at one of the places along the trip, drop me a line (or cheer me on from the side the streets in Berlin?) If you’re a client then my UK mobile is the most reliable way to reach me.
