jakki: me, myself, I ..
the next 5 weeks will be entirely communal living - its quite a challenge to be sociable 24 hours a day for that length of time! Today is my packing day and I get to spend a little time with my own thoughts in my own space. I’m making an agreement with myself to do the same at some point during the trip, even if its just an hour somewhere :)
michael: Weighing in at 17 kilos...
… and 3 hours later, my big rucksack is ready to rock and roll! Complete with tent, matt, tripod, clothes etc. its a little under 17 kilos, so it isn’t too crippling to carry. Dead excited now. Two more sleeps in a real bed, then its five glorious weeks of sun, turtles, good times and hard work for a good cause. Tuesday will be a long day of travelling but it will be well worth it;...
jakki: travel crisis averted, phew! Archelon...
Have spent the weekend being very busy (doing paperwork for the trip, ringing volunteers, taking my elderly mother shopping, doing the family shop, cooking the last sunday roast for a while .. haven’t packed yet though). Abbey’s dad discovered there is a national taxi strike on the day we land - very bad news as the 3 volunteers going to Matala would have to stay in Heraklion til the...
abbey: ruthless packing and still too much!
Abbey: Ruthless packing with my mum and I still have too much! The turtles don’t need all this stuff so why should I?! haha as long as I have me Piz Buin, a coupla euros and my sense of humour- I’ll be fine!

Everything gonna be alright ….
hayley: get set ..go
So I have never done a blog before , first time for everything I guess! I am currently doing some last minute packing and have to say packing is not one of my strong points. However were there’s a will there’s a way to get everything in one bag. I can’t wait to see everyone and be there now, not long :)
jakki: winding down ready for winding up ...
last day at work tomorrow, thank heavens! got plenty to do including final team Leader preparations for our trip. My ‘real work’ work is tidy and neatly handed over to capable hands and there’ll be nothing left unfinished. My weekend is going to be spent sorting out my motherly and daughterly duties making sure everyone i leave at home is organised and ok too (including the...
I keep looking at the weather forecast for crete and UK …. It’s almost incomprehensible that we’ll have sunshine warmth and blue skies for a whole consistent 5 weeks!
starting to feel a bit stressy now. Wondering how heavy my Team Leader pack, first aid kit, and other paperwork will be. Trying not to think about missing the train with everyones Boarding Passes in my possession …. On a positive note I’m doing really well on being minimal! And i’ve done really well not to stress til now! Jakki
