26.02.2012 - 26.02.2012
We are into the final week of preparations and are becoming very excited. The bed in the second bedroom is strewn with clothing and other articles as we select what we think we'll need.
Although we are sailing Northward it will still be quite cold when we get to China and Japan. Here we are experiencing a warm "Indian Summer" but will be heading into an early Spring. There's also the tropics to negotiate. Darwin, Bali, Malaysia and even Hong Kong on the way up. Then there's Guam, Rabaul and Brisbane on the way back. Working out our clothing needs is proving a challenge.
As we're sailing round trip Sydney to Sydney there's no airline limitations on our luggage. There is however a weight limit for the coach trip there and back but the driver doesn't enforce it too strictly.
This should be the last posting until we're aboard.
