Thanks to the generosity of many of you I’ve just been to our local Flight Centre travel agent and booked myself a ticket to Sweden!! I’m so excited I can’t believe my underpants are still on!
ctm, you need to book us in somewhere for dinner on Saturday, June 2nd. I’m flying into Stockholm because I owe you plenty for all the translations etc.
If anyone’s travelling between Stockholm and Trollhattan on the 3rd then I’d love to catch a ride.
I’ll be in the Trollhattan environs until the Festival ends and then I have to make my way back to Stockholm for the return flight.
Like I said, it’s due to the generosity of many visitors to this site that I’ve been put in a position to book this flight now. So thank you all, thank you very much.
I have approximately 10 days to get the rest of the money together, pay for the flight and therefore secure the booking. The “Send Swade to Sweden” fun has raised almost A$850 and the international airfare (I still have domestic fares to book) is A$2,350.
If anyone else would like to contribute to the fund either by donation or by purchasing a T-shirt (new European shirts will be posted later tonight – and they’re great) then your donation would be gratefully received and you can rest assured that I’ll be working my butt off while I’m there to bring you all the best coverage of the Saab Festival that I possibly can.
Again, my thanks to everyone and I’ll see you in Sweden!
