Preparing for the Big Trip

Since we returned to the UK in March we have been busy preparing the Landrover, ourselves and our paperwork, as well as trundling around the country staying with friends and family.

We are on schedule for leaving these shores around June the 26th. The current route planned involves driving through Europe to Poland and on to Baltic states and exiting Europe via Turkey. Through Syria and Jordan to the Arabian Peninsula. From Yemen we will ship to somewhere in Eastern Africa and then journey down to South Africa. After shipping to Perth we will spend a couple of months driving accross Australia before ending up back in Kiwi land.

Before we sail away we are planning to hang around a pub one Sunday afternoon, in London somewhere. We will let people know sooner to the date when we have sorted something out and we hope to see lots of friends and family there.
