Day 216, Friday, 21.08.2009

Feeling sick in my bones today, everything hurts, a bit of temperature, some flu virus took unfortunately over. No paddling tomorrow yet. Just sleeping and relaxing.

And I was already guessing after that pampering, relaxing day yesterday with lots of good food I’ll recover soon and very easy…but obviously that flu virus took it’s chance to take over my weakened and stressed body and weakens me even more now for a while. So wait and see and feel how it goes the next days.

Well done Freya, stoke up on some good food and take in the well deserved rest. Thank you very much for taking the time to post your blog, we really appreciate it. Fiona

Just read the first two of your full posts on the cliffs stage … very sobering … and absolutely horrifying! Even compared with Terry Bolland’s graphic description of his own northbound Zuytdorp adventure, which was scary enough. Certainly am glad it turned out OK, and looking forward to the rest of the cliffs story. Hope you are feeling better.

As Jorg said…have a good rest…..The weather down here has been crap……


Rest up for the next stage Freya, your body is telling you what a mighty effort you have put in to pass the cliff section…pamper youself for a while!

Kein Wunder, dass Du Dir nach der T(ort)our enlang den Zuytdorp Cliffs ziemlich ausgelutscht vorkommst, Freya – zeig mir jmand, dem es nicht so ginge. Mach langsam: Die Erde dreht sich auch noch in drei, vier Tagen und der Rest der Tour läuft Dir nicht davon. Grüsse aus D, Frank


Hallo Freya, die Jannys Mädels lassen grüssen. Wir haben heute unseren Saison Grillabend bei mir zu hause. Alles ist vorbereitet und wir denken an dich.

Howdy Freya,
Sorry to hear about your illness. Hope you feel better soon. As someone wrote R&R may be the ticket for this one. Get well soon and stay strong.



Take some time and recover. It’s exciting watching your adventures. Wishing you the best and a quick recovery.
