Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

And the name of the shop?

  12. I always wonder how they could ride so high without your feet reaching the ground. I would fall down when I had to get off I am afraid.

  14. Cool! I'd love to try one of those some day! But somewhere with a soft landing... 'cause I'm pretty sure I'd fall off! :p
