Before departure

Another post, another update...

Since last update; bike got shipped, ticket bought and farewell dinner with close friends.

This week (05) have been full of events. Tuesday, the driver, Paul, picked up the bike to drive it to MotoFreight in Heathrow, UK. Paul, who is en ex-soldier, told me he had just come from Sweden and was going through Denmark on the way to Germany. From the he was to continue to Belgium and France to deliver and pick up more bikes. The guy was awesome and fun-spirited person and driving around Europe with other peoples bikes like they were his own.

Awesome to meet you Paul!

Because of the date my trip starts and my friends also going on vacation, Wednesday was the only available day we all could meet. They threw me a farewell dinner - sadly one friend turned out couldn't come after all.
One friend lives in the apartment underneath me and they all gathered there for preparing the feast - the good old standards: burgers!

Thanks a lot guys (Klaus, Tobias, Lasse and Philip).

Finally Thursday night, I bought my ticket to Buenos Aires (BA), Argentina. I arranged with the freight company that I would pick it up on Monday 22FEB and I wanted to arrive a couple of days early - however, the tickets for "a couple of days early" was too much money, so had to book it for 21FEB out of DK landing in the morning on 22FEB in BA. That means I would step out of the plane and go right to the customs. It is gonna be hard, but let's see how goes.

See you in the next update.
Stay safe.
