The Lost Traveller

Hello everyone!!!!!

I am nearly on my way home. I have not had a lot of computer access on my trip, so it is a good thing that I have a few extra weeks off when I do get back, so I will be able to catch up on all my blog reading :o)

I have missed you all.

The next time I travel; I am taking my laptop, no matter what anyone says to my. I was convinced that I wouldn't need it as all the places I was staying would have access for me. Well they don't, every where now has free Wi-Fi access, no one has computers for there visitors to use any more, the few times that they did, they charged way too much to use them. I have seen a few internet cafes as well, but most looked so seedy I was scared to go in.

So I am going to be going a few posts on my holiday when I get back home. With a small paragraph on each day with one photo for the day. I am thinking only a week per post, other wise it will either be soo long, I won't even read it, let alone anyone else; or I will leave too much out. As for the photos, I have 20GB of photo memory cards, I need to limit it to just one per day, other wise it will be 500 photos. I was very click happy :o)

Band news is as follows:
I have not had a lot of trouble with it at all. Except for some dry airplane food were I basically took two bits and knew I was full so ate no more for another two hours. I have chosen most foods with the band in mind, so that was most of the reason for that. I also have not worried about my weight on this trip at all. I ate what I wanted, when I wanted - we'll see how that went.

There was a lot of sweets and desserts, because France does really well with those. I don't have a lot of photos of these either, because I would eat them before I remembered that I wanted to take a picture of them.

Before I Left Australia, I weighed myself: 117.4kg (258.8lb) I have not weighed myself at all while away. No access to a scale can be a wonderful thing, it has freed me from my weight issues. And while I have walked enough on the trip to actually loose weight, I did eat a fair bit of desserts and pasta while away. An item high on my to do list when I get home is to get back to my surgeon for a small fill, because I do know that I am too loose at the moment.

I guess I will just need to see how my scale reacts when I do get home. Looking forward to that so that I start adding my photos to my computer. I have so much that I want to share and catch up on.

Hope you are all well and I will be reading you soon.
