Today I am feeling envious, which may indeed be one of the seven deadly sins but considering The Rapture has come and gone, I figure I’m safe.

Today I am feeling envious of Hal, an avid cyclist as well as a librarian. Hal is on sabbatical and currently in Europe attending an “un-conference” entitled Cycling for Libraries. This event takes 100 librarians from around the world on a bicycle tour from Copenhagen to Berlin. Hal found out about the conference via an email one day. I only wish I could have seen his face when he read it.

For Hal, this must be Nirvana. The only equivalent I could think of for myself is a cycling tour of French vineyards, led by the Australian men’s Olympic beach volleyball team.

You can follow Hal’s wondrous travels here on his great blog. Deadly sin loves company.
