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
