Less is more

We thought it would never end. Endless To Do lists, To Do list to manage our To Do lists, but finally we have parted with our “worldly possessions”, 12 boxes shipped backed to Oz, destined for the folks garage (cheers mum & dad). ||
The good news is we won’t have trouble in the morning deciding what to wear. Our wardrobe is stripped down to its bare essentials: 1 pair of trousers, 1 shirt, 1 pair of multipurpose shoes (cycling, evening wear, disco). It is in many ways rather liberating.

The wonderful things in life are the things you do, not the things you have.”
- Reinhold Messner.

Now the packing is done the To Do lists are petering out we feel totally exhausted and we haven’t even pushed a pedal. I’m sure the adrenalin will kick in tomorrow when we wake up to our new life on the road, let the journey begin.

Just checked out all your worldly possessions!

Still quite a lot to have on 2 bikes.

Cheers mum and dad!

Great farewell chat we had.

Less is more????! Obviously that practice does not run in the family! The above possessions equate to an over-night stay for your sister!!!
