So its now D-day… todays the day our adventure begins! Firstly I just want to thank EVERYONE for your words of encouragement, advice and support, it has been so amazing to have so many people behind us in this grand escapade of ours! It was a far off dream of mine to travel around the world, and then it became a goal and now its actually happening. We could not have done it without the support of you, our friends and family, and without the advice of the many other world travellers out there.
So now that the soppy bit is over, back to business. First stop is London: tonight we leave Cape Town at 18:45 and arrive in London early tomorrow morning. Luckily, we now have passports in hand, complete with the five visas needed for the trip. <We had a bit of a hair-raising moment on Friday when we thought our passport would not arrive at the VFS offices, and after a minor panic attack and a bit of a wait, we finally got our passports at 13:00, just before closing time…talk about ‘skin of our teeth’!!>
Well, thats all from us for now…next time we post it will be from London and hopefully we’ll have some more exciting news and photos to start loading!
P.S: As I am writing this, Trist is still deciding what to pack in his backpack, hence the ‘sort of’ comment!
