A few of the more mundane tasks have now been completed. Charlotte has taken and passed her IELTS exam and has now proved that she can speak and understand English well enough to work as a nurse in New Zealand! Our flat has been let to a new tennant and we have started to pack our stuff into boxes. Our final trip to the Isle of Fright is scheduled for next weekend to see my Dad and brother and we have made a final trip to Cotswolds to buy the last few remaining items of travel gear. We must have spent thousands in that place! Thank god for our Youth Hostel membership which gives us 15% discount!
One slightly worrying thing is that, having packed everything into our rucksacks, they seem incredibly heavy and we are going to hike in the Grand Canyon in 100F heat with them!! A bit of thinning out might be required before departure!! Still, how few pairs of pants can you realistically get away with??? I will get back to you on that one.........
