Today I saw Space get married. It was his second time. His last wedding was last week in Canada... That's on the other side of the world, but that's where Mrs Space hails from... Anyway, they are not living in Oz OR Canada.... Estonia will be home for the Spaces.. and good on 'em... Nice Day for a White wedding!! Okay, it was a bit damp, but the guys all wore white suits, so the bride wasn't the only one.. hm.. I'm tired. my grammar is suffering I will not inflict any more Honzablog on you tonight! tata!

Just been checking out http://www.bookcrossing.com Interesting idea. You leave books laying about the place for others to pick up, read, and pass on. The books are registered on-line, and thereby can be tracked on their journey. Might give it a shot. Now, what books do I have to give away...?

On this day in 1998 I made a fairly epic journey. At 1:30am we got into George's van in Dunlo (Western PA) and drove to Pittsburgh to catch a 6am flight to JFK (New York) in an American Eagles airline SAAB 340 (that's quite a small plane...). From there an American Air 757 to Miami. At Miami airport the flags of many nations were displayed, but no Australian flags... At 4:30pm it was on a 727 to Kingston, Jamaica, where we arrived shortly after sunset. From there it was a 3 hour drive on windy narrow blue mountain roads in a Christian Services International Mazda van to Port Antonio in the north of the country (good thing it was dark and we couldn't see the precipitous drops...). Definitely bed time when we finally arrived...
On this day in 1999 we left Singapore at midnight on a Lufthansa Jumbo to Frankfurt. (on the previous day we went from Geelong to Melbourne in a Salvation Army Mazda van and caught a Singapore Airlines flight to Singapore) About 12 hours later at around 6 in the morning we arrived in Frankfurt, and one hour later we were leaving for Prague in an A320-200 Airbus. Just a one hour flight this time, we were picked up at the airport by an Armada Spasy Mazda van and taken to the top end of the city. By now it was 9am. We had till 5pm to walk through the streets of the most scenic city in Central Europe and find the Praha Hlavny Nadrazy (main Station). We weren't expecting temperatures of over 30 deg in Prague, so we were tired and hot, but excited to be there. The Skoda train took us across the length of the Czech countryside and we got off at last in Ostrava in the eastern edge of the country. We were picked up by the Armada Spasy in their mazda van, a nine seater, it needed two trips. By the time we had much needed showers it was midnight and bed time
On this day in 2000 I was in Sydney for the Hillsong conference and being transported about the place in Ringwood Salvo's Mazda van. We were also being transported through the medium of Praise and Worship music into the very throne room of God.
On this day in 2001 I was preparing to fly to Hillsong in Sydney, took the day off work, can't work on the 6th of July, afterall! I think I went for a bit of a drive to feel in travel mode...
And so July 6th 2002 what shall I do? Too poor to get an international flight, too disorganised to get to Hillsong, too scared of the rain to go for a walk... at least I don't have to scam a day off work, as it's SATURDAY!!! Still, should go do something...
