Ok... Here is my last scan for 3 weeks. All packed but with a last minute adjustment. I found referring to my carry on stuff sketch (with additional notes further to flickr comments) incredibly useful.
Thanks in advance for all the well wishes and comments that I know will come as I post as I go and all my friends that follow silently... It really means a lot to me when I am travelling on my own.

he slumbers not, nor sleeps.
5 The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade

nor yet the sun by day.
7 The Lord shall keep thy soul; he shall
preserve thee from all ill.
8 Henceforth thy going out and in
God keep for ever will.
