    John, I think you’ve forgotten your snorkel… though actually the weather looks like it might be a little drier from this weekend so fingers crossed! With all those chargers you might want to throw in a US to UK adapter plug – don’t assume places here will have them. Have a great run – looking forward to following you before I head off to your Country!

    I will pick one up enroute, I had one and looked for it for a week off and on but couldn’t find it.. Most shops in the airport carry them.
