1 week to go….

Lisa:   12 months of preparation and training and now it comes down to 1 week, how did that happen? Feelings of excitement, anticipation, nerves, fear, pure joy to name a few. Backpack is ready to go minus luxurious items such as deodorant and shampoo and appropriatley replaced with more needy essentials like rope, spare tubes and tools. When your carrying everything you need 20km+ a day for 2 weeks trust me every item counts, it doesn’t matter if you smell a bit or your hair is dirty what’s important is that you can be towed up a hill or fix a puncture. Just for the record i prefer the latter !

Before we set off on the yellow brick road to the Emerald City we have to first endure the flight from hell to my hometown London, we will each spend a few nights with family before hopping over to Porto, Portugal to begin our pilgrimage on the 2nd October.

See you in Portugal !
