(I nearly called this post "1 Month til D-day", but that's probably crass and so inappropriate for a Brit heading towards Germany?) What am I feeling right now? Nervous and excited. Nervous because I'm ill-prepared and low-grade, long-term injured. But excited because the adventure is within spitting distance! I'm looking forward to seeing my friends from Transe Gaule - Trond from Norway, Hiroko from Japan, J-B from France, and maybe more. I'm very excited too to gain a whole new perspective on Germany and the folks who live there. Til now, my experience has been confined almost exclusively to Bavaria (for skiing & motorcycling in the mountains & summer walks round the lakes) and Frankfurt (for business). Now I should get to enjoy a whole new dimension of sights, smells and sounds.
In the words of our hapless president, "Bring it on!".
