Today, after a few crazy final days of fitting in goodbyes and lots and lots of packing, we said fairwell to most of our belongings as they were taken off to storeage. We have know idea when we will see any of this again and the feeling of adventure is really upon us. Lizzy and Mum went up with the trucks to supervise everything going into the container, while Oli and I stayed to clean up and tidy. We have an offer in on the house and with everything crossed hope this will go through. However as with all of these things it is still an unknown and anything could happen. Oli is still at school and will finish tomorrow, after that we will join the others up in Cawsand for stage 2. We need to help Mum get her house ready for the Summer lets and also makesure everything is ready for the big trip.
It is hard to plan for an adventure like this after the obvious dive/snorkel kit we need clothes for California and the South Pacific plus books for school and equipment for hiking in Yosemite?? And what about cameras?? I feel there will be a few attempts at packing – I just grabbed everything.
In addition I want to make environmentally, plastic free travel choices, perhaps discussed in my next blog entry??
