It’s been quiet on here recently. With the weather getting colder, and nights darker, there hasn’t been much time to get my bike shed finished, and other woodwork done, though the roof of the bike shed is waterproof, so it will survive until the spring if it needs to!
In college, I have had an interesting time – many months ago, we had a visit from a Phil Williams, who aside from travelling around businesses promoting ecological ideas and living, arranges the occasional trip to Ecuador, which is an opportunity to visit cloud forests, rainforests and travel across the Andes. When I heard about the trip, I was instantly interested. In October, we were asked if we were interested in the trip, and I registered my interest. At fairly short notice, we were told that the trip would be taking place in April, over Easter. Though it came as a bit of a shock, I figured the only way to do trips like this would be to seize the opportunity when they come up! I paid my deposit last week.
I got a newsletter which outlined the trip today, though a full schedule will be on its way in February. In that time, I’m working as much as I can in stadiums to get some money for the trip together, and possibly looking at a fundraiser over February half term! Its a busy time, but the more I do things, the faster Easter will come!
