HELEN: The bags are packed and the journey begins.
We’re both flying out to Europe a little early so that we can spend time with family in London before starting our trip next Wednesday.
I’m flying directly out from Canberra whereas Lisa will go from Sydney. The plan is to regroup on the flight from London to Porto on Monday….fingers crossed we both get there with two bags and two wheelchairs!
I’m super excited to be at this point in the journey, it really is that point of no return where the bags are checked in and there’s no turning back.
This trip has been several months in the making, and I feel so privileged to be sharing it with someone as passionate and determined as Lisa!
