Packing up

Written on: Friday April 3rd, 2009

A journal entry from: London to Beijing overland!!

Well we have just organised this blog to write our journal  to keep you all updated of where we are and what we are upto.  Will try and update as much as possible but may be difficult in some areas we visit.

We are currently packing up all our stuff and getting organised to leave London.  We are having some drinks tonight with friends and finishing off last minute things on the weekend.

We are due to leave on Monday 6th of April from Hammersmith in London and 7:30am ready to catch the ferry from Dover to Calais at 9am to start our trip .  We are heading through France and Germany "free" camping along the way just to break everyone i think and see if we can hack it, before spending 2 nights in Prague.

From there we make our way through Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and into Turkey for anzac day.

Then onto Iran, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Tibet and China, where we are due to arrive on the 10th of August.

So we have our tents, roll mats, sleeping bags etc, and we are still not sure how we are going to fit everything in our bags and unfortunately for our mates Ben and Kelly we have taken over their lounge with our gear.  It's ok guys we will definiately leave!

So we will sign off for now, we hope everyone's well and we are looking forward to seeing everyone when we return home.

Bye for now from a very excited and nervous Heather and Russell.
