14th June 08

Date: 14th June 08

Location: Durban, South Africa

Weather: Clear blue skies and sunshine, 27°c

Status: Nervous as hell

Had a full day of shopping to re-equip myself with the kit I’ll need to climb the mountains later on during the expedition. The situations been rather been forced on me as my backpack and its contents went back to the UK in January and DHL want to charge me £256 to send it from the UK to South Africa so I’ve decided to replace everything instead.

After moving between 3 or 4 shops to get the best prices the total to replace everything came to less than half of the price DHL wanted to charge me to send it over!

Kathy’s headed down to the south coast for the weekend so I had her flat to myself, ate some dinner and went to bed at 7.30pm in preparation for the Saturday and the big day.

End of day location: Durban, South Africa

Distance covered: 10kms
