Final Link in the Chain - Now Complete

Rail Journeys Now Booked

semi-overcast 21 °C

Well, it is all done now.

With the continued help from Jo Patton of the Batemans Bay Flight Centre Travel Agency we have nailed the final nail in the bookings for this awesome adventure. We've confirmed the rail legs from Toronto to Fallowfield, from Frankfurt to Amsterdam, from Amsterdam to Paris and from Paris to London. I was a bit surprised by the $30 booking fee but it works out at just under $4 per ticket so it isn't too bad when spread over the $900 for all the tickets.

There are only 27 days to go and with this final detail completed we can now concentrate on the horror of packing our bags. Selecting clothing to suit Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, Northern Europe, the Mediterranean and Singapore is quite a challenge. Keeping it all at or below the 24 Kg airline limit just adds to the problem.

We may have to adopt the travelling style of the couple we travelled with in China. They started out with next to nothing in the way of clothing and bought essential items as the need arose. Worked well for them but that trip was just over three weeks, this one is at least four times longer.

The next stage of the preparation is to collect all the documentation and running a fine-tooth comb through it to make sure it all matches what we planned.

I will write again when something significant occurs.
