After yesterday’s false start I’ve decided to revise my plans and I’m no longer going to Scandinavia. There were a few reasons for changing my mind one of them being that maybe it’s a bit too early in the year and I might be better waiting until the summer when it warms up a bit more! Another factor was the expense, Scandinavia is renowned for being expensive and after being off work for so long now I don’t think my bank balance could take it! My new plan is to stay at home for a day or two, go to the Isle of Wight camping for a night or two just to keep the tradition up of the IOW weekend which has always been on the first weekend in May. Then on Sunday get the ferry from Portsmouth and go to Spain where I’m hoping it will be a bit warmer. My plan is to then cycle through Spain and down to Malaga then cycle around the coast possible towards Portugal.
