Just over three weeks to go and just about anything that can be done has been done. Just got to be patient and while away the next three weeks.
Jenny has added some additional 'shore excursions'. We realise the ship's tours are not cheap but it is a good way to spend our 'on-board credits'. As neither of us run up a bar bill there isn't all that much we can sensibly spend aboard the ship.
One of the uncertainties that we face is what the weather will be at the various destinations and there's no way of being sure. The advice frequently offered is to pack layers and we've sorted out up to four or five layers of clothing. The bottom half isn't so much an issue but our tops are more important. I've been experimenting with layers here over the past few weeks as our morning temperatures have dipped below 5 °C.
We've both been trimming our weight in readiness for the inevitable weight gain on the cruise. Of course we've got all the best intentions to 'watch what we eat', heard that before !!
There's little more to report so this will most likely be the last entry before we start out on this journey. The Travellerspoint Planner estimates we will cover over 45,000 Km most of which are the air legs.
As always you can follow my pictorial journey on the 365 Project. This link should take you there http://365project.org/tonydebont/365
Until next time.
Cheers .... Tony
