The Journey Continues

 27 May 2013 – Westward Bound for Norway via Saudi Arabia & UK

Heading from SIN to Heathrow/London on SaudiAir, OW for US$332 S$420; connecting on Ryanair from Stansted/London to RYG/Norway, OW for GBP44 S$84. Even with bus and train transfers, the total should not be more than S$600 from door to door. What are the chances, Heathrow, Stansted, Oslo – oh well! ce sera sera, time will show and whatever happens will happen and happens for a reason!

the journey continues westward with uncertain plans regarding the UKc2c hike. Was told that Glenda who will be hiking with me was injured in a recent freak accident at Trail Days in Damascus/VA, USA. Still waiting to hear from her, but in the meanwhile, have mailed some of the hiking stuff ahead to UK, hoping for the best. Am really concern about her and other fellow AT Hikers involved.


First time in Damascus/VA was 2005 hiking the AT thru-hike and again in 2008 for Trail Days.
