The flying season in Dubai is coming to a close and I’m looking forward to be getting back into the project again on the 1st of June.
A lot of planning has been going on over the past few months. It has involved a lot of emails, phone calls and a few trips to Poland and Czech Republic to tend to my balloon and truck. I even made a quick trip to New Zealand to pick up truck parts, which I then took to Poland to install in the truck. I’ve spent a lot of time and money on the truck to fix many of its problems. It couldn’t have been done without a huge amount of help from my friends in Wroclaw.
From the 1st June until the 30th of September we will be visiting the following countries, (in this order):
Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, UK, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Andorra, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy and Liechtenstein.
Later in the year we plan to travel through South-East Europe and onto the Middle East. I had a meeting with the Head of Communications for UNICEF Middle East and North Africa yesterday here in Dubai and we are all ready planning a few events in this area later this year and for 2017.
