All packed up and ready to go

I joined the ship in Sydney on February 21st.

My suitcase is packed with the necessaries to walk the WHW. Our backpacks, clothes and essentials are all there. My Camino walking stick that I really wanted to bring had to be cut into three by a local joinery firm near where we live. I was not sure I could get a 1.5 metre walking pole on a plane. Debbie will bring it in her bags when she joins in Fremantle. It appears they have made a bit of a hash of it so I will see what the ships carpenters can do with it. I hope I dont regret cutting the pole. We went through a lot together my stick and I walking the Camino Frances from France into Spain to the city of Santiago De Compostela.

So the plan is that we will leave the ship in Mauritius on April 23rd and fly to Glasgow. There we will either walk or take the train to Milngavie and start. I hope to keep this blog updated with comment and photos as we go.
