... over the baggage weight allowance as I could barely lift them. However I was still slightly shocked when I had to pay Turkish Airlines £50 for it!!! Ok I will admit it now, I have done quite a bit of shopping over the last couple of weeks. Hey ho! The shopping continued at Mombasa airport - I bought the obvious memento in the form of a wooden giraffe. It reminded me of my safari and the serene way in which giraffes move around seemed to be ...

The last 7kms of the day were back to the Shropshire Union Canal which I walked along yesterday morning when leaving Welshpool.
