Spent most of yesterday sorting and packing clothing for our trip. It was difficult to decide what was essential and bearing in mind there will be four flights before we board the ship. A lot of the gear has not been previously worn and most likely won't be worn again. The luggage weight limitation continues to play on my mind.
All our social engagements are now completed. I find most people want to know if I'm excited. Not sure how to answer that. Dreading the long flights between New Zealand and Argentina. Some concern about the weather and sea state in Antarctica. Impatient to get started, I'm ready to go. Nothing I can do about any of that
Our local weather has turned on a scorcher with the temperature touching the high thirties. There will need to be some adjusting as we get closer to our destination.
Just completed my trial pack, looks like I'll make the luggage weight limit. Just hope everything is in the bag.
My next entry is likely to be from the hotel in Buenos Aires, it will depend on how I pull up after the flight
I'll take a break now and recheck the bag 8
Have a great Christmas and enjoy the New Year. Stay healthy and safe.
Cheers .. Tony
