South America, or bust.....

Trekking in the South Hampshire Amazon

Trekking in the South Hampshire Amazon

So here I am trekking in my back garden. Surprisingly, The New Forest isn't that similar to South America, but it served the purpose of reminding myself how much fun it is lugging 12kg around on your back.

Packing has been completed:
Clothes -Check
Money - Check
Youthful exuberance - Umm, I had it a minute ago. Typical, you think of thought of everything and then you remember at the last minute that you've overlooked something. Oh well, I shall pack some middle-aged optimism instead. It doesn't go quite as far, but should get me by.

Next stop: Miami Beach (The bad news is it's only around 25 degrees there at the moment.)

That, Roger Matthews, looks very much like a smile on your face. I've been planning one of those for a while, mine is due towards the end of December.

This is it then. All the planning done and almost three months of travel ahead of you. I can't imagine how you feel, but my guess is it's a good feeling. Enjoy yourself, we'll be thinking of you.
