Preparation for the trip

Spaarndam, Netherlands

Finished my projects July 31st , gave back the laptop’s phones car etc.
Finally my hard earned holiday begins! Drove to my boat and brought it to Spaarndam. The following morning it was lifted onto the quayside. It took me one whole week to re-paint it.

Now It’s late Saturday evening,
Two night’s to go and then I’m leaving this continent for 10 WEEK’S!!!

Haven’t prepared anything because I was to flipping occupied repainting my “sailing yacht”.

For my complete trip I have purchased the following:
• 4 Lonely Planet’s;

• 1 road map of Australia
• 1 Digital photo camera (Lumix Leica)
2 2Gig card’s
1 spare battery
1 small tripod
• 2 pant’s with a lot of pocket’s
• 1 short

In addition to the above mentioned I will stuff the backpack (from Sanne) with the following:
• 7 boxer shorts
• 7 socks
• 1 pair of jeans
• 7 shirt’s
• Short
• Peak performance Jumper
• North Face Vest
• Timberland boot
• Reef Slipper
• Sneaker
• Sun block
• After sun
• Toothpaste
• Shampoo
• Shower gel
• Shaving device
• Electric toothbrush
• Telephone

Of course I’ve forgotten something.
However, I can buy everything else on location.

That's it for now.....
If you want, you can leave a comment during my trip....

After having a couple of beers with the guy's yesterday, Tried to go asleep at 23:30.
However I could not close an eye...

What have I done.....
Walked to the travel agency and out of the blue... without thinking booked a trip around the world!!!!

Ok.... now I'm realy nervous....
I was used traveling alone to projects all over the world.
However, Then I'm going with an cause... no I don't even know where or how I'm going to sleep, eat or what i'm going to do..

It's very stange to be traveling alone, not having anybody to talk with.....
Well, possibly I'll meet a lot of people this way...

My good friend Raymond picked me up at 07:00 this morning.
He was looking at me and said; What you'r going to do now is an ones in a life time upertunity..... Enjoy!!!

Now I'm at the airport, still have to wait 50 minutes before departure to London.
Then Transfer to LAX......

Ok... this is it... for the last time in The Netherlands.
