Weekly report: Leave Canada


I have been in St John's for 2 week now. I met 2 other bikers here and spent a lot of time with them. Mike is planning to bike across Canada, but I think may change his mind and bike around the world now.
Adrian crossed Canada last year and raised 200,000 dollar for The Keg Spirit Foundation. It is amazing how he does that. He has really taken care of me and has made me a contact with Planeterra G.A.P adventures.
Robert Collingwood from the Norwegian consulate gave me some work. He has a company who makes water and vodka of iceberg. Iceberg could be 15,000 years old and it is cool to drink water from snow which the Viking's were doing 1,000 years ago. He took us on a boat trip to see the icebergs and we gave it the test Viking style.
There will be pictures of icebergs later as for now my camera is broken.
Margaret Wiig helped me find a cheap air ticket from London to Africa. I love it here.
I will leave St John's tomorrow and go onto London where I will stay for 2 days with some friends, then onto Madeira where I will meet my Brother Stig, The Viking Sailor.
