Well, nearly time for the start. Peter, Ruth and Connor returned to New Zealand earlier this week and we fly out to join them very soon.
Time to panic!! The tickets are all sorted - upgrades requested - the suitcases are out of the attic and piles of clothes on the bed. Final paperwork to be checked and then we will be off.

This Trip Journal is a new experiment - so we will see how it goes!
