Body Revolution Rox

Well this is my last week of the 12 week Body Revolution package at les Mills. I have acheived my goals which was really just to get back to where I was last year after the 12 Week Challenge except that in terms of weight I've been on this 84kg plateau for about 5 weeks which has been really annoying. Anyway I've been thinking about trying rock climbing. The local YMCA has indoor climbing walls and does instruction. I think that it could be really fun and in summer you can go and do real climbing outside. Anyway... something to think about.

Trip update

Well things are getting closer with the trip. Current itinerary looks something like this: May 28th - leave Christchurch May 29th/30th arrive London - Nick and Paul go on to Stuttgart for their engine conference and I stay in London - probably at the Earls Court YHA, or somewhere June 2nd evening or 3rd morning - I fly to Stuttgart to meet Nick after the conference June 5th? - Stuttgart to Koblenz June ? - Amsterdam where uncle Pieter or one of my couzins will meet us at the airport and we'll stay with them for about a week and use Amsterdam as a base with high priority to visit Muiderslot castle June 15? - leave Amsterdam and travel north getting to Roskilde in Denmark by June 19 - Roskilde YHA (booked) and the Viking Ship Sailing Course (also booked) June 25 - Copenhagen. Its my birthday and almost the end of our trip so I'd like to stay somewhere a bit nicer tonight and have a restaurant dinner June 26 - Aarhus possibly staying at the Cab Inn which is close to the library where I'll be visiting for two days (27th - 28th) while Nick explores the area - Jane says to look out for the Sow statue/fountain June 29th - leave - not sure yet where we'll be flying out from but we need to be back at work on the 4th July and we'll lose a day coming back in addition to the travel time itself so I imagine that we'll board a flight out of Copenhagen
