Stay here for few days and was invited to cristmas party, meet a lot of nice people.
But cristmas without family is little sad.

I am lucky, many people have invited me to stay in their homes. People are very nice here.
Two police cars have stopped me on the road. It was the first time on my trip that they checked my passport, I belive they think I have run away from a mental hospital or something. But they are friendly and asked all about my trip.

Many truck drivers said they can't see me when it is dark, can't understand that. I look like a Christmas tree!

It is not too cold yet, but people keep telling me that it will be soon.

My Thank You list -

What kind of lights do you have? Do you have a reflective vest? I found an interesting company that makes some great L.E.D. vests (have blinking lights on them). Go to Maybe they would send you one to wear over your winter coat for free in exchange for you telling people about their products. You probably need an extra large to go over your winter coat. The blinking lights on the vest will definitely help drivers to see you!
