I’m now on the count down for starting the Thames Trail! I’ve bought my boots and broken them in, the itinerary has been created with gorgeous people joining me for days here and there and I’ve read ‘Three Men in a Boat, To Say Nothing of the Dog’. I’ve done some training in hot and humid Sydney .. never realised it was quite so hilly! Walking the Trail starts at the Thames Barrier in three weeks .. yes, I know .. I’m walking it backwards but what would you expect from a woman who gets Heathrow mixed up with Gatwick, can’t tell her Bangkok from her Chiang Mai and misses flights as regularly as Donald Trump gets new hair extensions.

 

These are a few of my pics from my walks in sunny Sydney, in The Blue Mountains and in cool Queenstown, New Zealand. Next post will be from Westminster Bridge, after the first day’s walk! Please join me for drawings and tales of each day of the journey.
