Γεια σας - I'm Leaving The BBC
I'm pleased to be able to finally write on currybetdotnet that I will be leaving the BBC at the beginning of next month. Although quite a lot of people already know my plans, and went to our 'going away party' last month, it was only yesterday that I resigned from my job and made it all official.
My wife and I are both taking a break from working. We'll be spending Christmas with her family in Qatar, and then in January, February and March of next year travelling through Europe. We plan to call in on Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, Belgrade, Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Venice, Milan, Ravenna, Pisa, Rome, Sardinia, Naples, Brindisi and several other places I've no doubt forgotten. After we have finished touring Italy we are going to head to Greece, and we are hoping to live in Crete over the summer at least, maybe longer if we find we really like it, and can make it work financially for us. That at least explains the sudden flurry of eBay activity and doing a boot sale as we attempt to reduce our possessions to a volume that can be carried on our backs.
I don't plan to be updating this site much until we reach Crete, though I do intend to keep a travelogue on my Yahoo! 360° blog, where I have already been writing about our preparations to move, as well as practising my travelogue during my recent visit to Zaragoza. And I'm sure there will be lots of pictures uploaded to Flickr whenever I get a chance.
