Final countdown

Seven sleeps to go. Where did the last six weeks - more importantly the last three months - go?

I feel pretty organised, and I even feel a bit fitter, thanks to the help of my lovely PT, Torsten, who's been walking me all around the lake near work and the hills near home. I've conquered O'Connor Ridge a number of times now, and tackled the lower half of Mt Ainslie. Hopefully that will have me in reasonable shape to do a lot of walking around the cities of Austria!

My to do list is now shrinking, rather than expanding. And there's nothing like a deadline to get your mid focused on priorities. Like today, catching up with my daughter Jenny, and my friend Jenny, for lunch in Daylesford. For anything that doesn't get done this week, it wasn't a priority, there's either another time or another way.

Serious stuff now: getting finances sorted, getting my will updated, making sure that my trip is logged with DFAT/Smart Traveller. After the tragedy of Milty's death last year, there are a few things I won't compromise on.

I'll probably start posting regularly from next Saturday when Mum and I leave Sydney on the first leg of our trip. Until then - hope to catch up with as many people as possible before I go, if not, see you on line or in January!

  1. Hey Susan,

    I love the Blog. It looks really awesome. It's definitely something that I need to look into. I might need to get your advice on that when you return to Canberra.

    I hope that all the training we have done together over the past 12 weeks will leave you in a good position to conquer all the walking you will have to do on your trip. I look forward to resuming training when you return, with some new goals!

    You have planned an amazing trip for yourself. You are going to have an awesome time. I can't wait to hear all the stories.

    I will keep a watch ful eye on this Blog.

    Enjoy the Journey!
