It has been a while since I last posted. With a stunning hot summer this year in Canterbury it has been very difficult not to be at the beach every weekend moment and thus, blog posts, housework, study, shopping and all other worthy pursuits have taken a back seat. Even body surfers crave the perfect wave and such pursuits have been all consuming and rewarding.
Although blog posting has not occurred, mega planning has been taking place. I have spent many hours on Google earth, Google maps, reading Lonely Planet books, Trip Advisor and many other resources trying to put together the perfect itinerary. So far we have 7 plane journeys and 2 train trips booked. Accommodation in London and Helsinki is booked.
The next step is to contact all the libraries I want to visit and set up some interviews. This bit I have been putting off a bit as my first attempts have yielded very little. Deep breath and carry on. I am also putting it out there that I am looking for accommodation. Being a sociable gal I need contact with people regularly so my search for friendly home style sofa surfing accommodation is more about human contact than saving money although the latter is a good driver too.
So, my first venture into asking for help starts now… if you have friends or family in the following places that might enjoy the company of a friendly librarian for a night or two I would love to hear from you…
Worcester (or nearby), Amsterdam, Halmstad, Stockholm, Copenhagen
