We're about 2 days work (maybe 3) from putting the plane into the paint shop, but.... the paint shop is only ready for us in 2 weeks time. So we're back in London, letting my fibreglass allergy rash die down, organising the house and relaxing. Well ok, it feels like I'm constantly putting on loads of washing, but apart from that!
We picked up the Leatherman we ordered on Amazon from the post office today, it's a really neat little tool. I got the extra bits kit so that we can take it with us everywhere and have the right hex driver for each job on the bike / plane, as well as screwdrivers etc. I'm also eyeing off the saw blade for bread cutting. It has a very nice strong steel blade as well & I'm not sure whether we shouldn't grind off the latch mechanism to avoid the possibility of having it confiscated as a 'weapon'.
Tonight we're going to an Argentinian steak house with friends, in what was meant to be a celebration of getting the plane ready for paint, so it's going to be a bit of a pre-celebration, oh well!

- We are now in Oz after two amazing years of traveling Europe in our home built plane. We met many fantastic people who we are proud to call friends and have gained a much better understanding of the similarities and differences between the cultures of the different European states as well as the history and geography that have lead to these differences. We enjoy meeting people with similar interests to ourselves and learning more about other cultures. Please let us know if you're going to be in Queensland and would like to catch up for a meal and a chat.
