Today is exactly 40 weeks since I first set off on my 100 weeks journey, flying out of Perth for Dubai, with Goal #1 in my sights. It seems such a long time ago now, as I have packed so much in to the weeks since then.
But I can still very clearly remember the sense of apprehension as I set off on that first journey, not really knowing how I would manage, and how things might turn out. I remember that feeling so well, because I am feeling it again now, as I fly out of Perth again tomorrow morning on another seven month journey.
And once again things are only half-planned, and I wonder how it will all work out. And yet although I feel slightly apprehensive, I am very excited too, and looking forward to new travels and adventures, to meeting new people and seeing new places.
I feel that I have sort of settled back into an easy routine here in Perth. I travelled for the first 28 weeks of my 100 weeks, but have had some sort of stable base now for the last 12 weeks, and it is a bit of a challenge to pack my bags and hit the road again.
But it is time to set off once more, first stop France, then England again, and onward from there…. watch this space!
