Happy Birthday Brother today is for You

Happy Birthday Brother Sorry I'm not there to celebrate it with you but today I will give you my days ride, and today crossed the Macedonia border and cycled into Greece. It has been a week since I left Vienna and I was determined to get to Greece on your Birthday so at 4pm on the 16th August 2012 I had cycled 138 miles leaving at 6am and arrived in Greece with very mixed emotions. The poor man at passport control didn't know how to react when i told him i had cycled from Great Britain to here even more perplexed when i told him id come via Norway In the end he gave me a big hug and got his other officer to come around to shake my hand, then people in their cars started to  wonder what was going on and so on the intercom  he announced what i had done the honking on the  car horns that followed was amazing got to admit I  got a quivering lip as I continued to cycle cars passed me with beeping horns and bravos thrown out of the window, I still cant believe I'm here Thank you Greece for the welcome.
 So brother yes you are 50 and your feeling a little fed up so remember this Its not about the length of your life its all about the width of your life, Love you brother be happy I cant stop grinning
