I remember when I met a priest in Kiltegan in Co. Wicklow, Ireland.
"Where are you going?" he asked
"I plan to spend the next year or two cycling around the world", I replied
"When did you start"
"I left Naas yesterday", I replied
"I see, well, good luck", he replied, completely sure I was bonkers

And yesterday I saw the first indication of Christmas. I saw a shop with a Christmas tree in it. It must be getting near Christmas I thought. This time last year I was just 5 weeks on the road and I got as far as France. Apparently it was their coldest winter in 20 years. So this year I've decided to spend Christmas somewhere warmer. I fly to Hawaii tomorrow.
Happy Christmas. Talk to ye in 2010
