For those of you beginning your journey from an airport other than Melbourne, your Plane Pack will arrive in the mail a week or so before you leave, as we want each of you to feel special, and enjoy every part of your trip, until we meet each other as a group at Ho Chi Minh airport:

All of us will also be receiving a Documents Pack in the next week from Annette at Port Travel; this will arrive registered mail. This has all our final travel documents and our day by day itinerary for our adventure!

I know many of you out there have also been asking if there will be a trip for 2012 and yes there will! We are putting together a package at the moment and will have more details for you on our return from Vietnam ( hint: I hear the ukulele playing and I see girls doing the hula and some unique and traditional applique!).

I really cannot keep a secret!

Thanks for the tips Leanne! I'll try my luck and see how I get on :)

Trudy, I would have to say, it depends who you talk to. Airlines will usually always say no upfront I have discovered, but if you simply have one needle (in your sewing) and the tiny travel scissors you should be okay. Always have Plan B. Worst case scenario is they will take your single needle and travel scissors, they won't take the rest of your project. Plan B for us to Vietnam is a packet of sewing needles and larger sized scissors in 'normal' luggage ie: not on board luggage. I have travelled all over the world and never been stopped with this. What I would say is don't point it out in security or you force them to make a decision. You're not doing anything wrong as they see the scissors and needle on the xray anyway. Safe travelling.

Hi Leanne
I'm intrigued to know if you stitch "in-flight"; I've contacted Qantas (for our trip to the States) and they don't allow needles, plastic scissors, crochet hooks - zero ... what am I going to do for 16 hours?!!
Have a ball. Will await the stories and photos on your return!
Love, Trudy

Auntie Pami - I think you could be right!


So excited, I have only 2 sleeps to go. HongKong weather doesnt look good, Beijing is amasing weather (lets hope the weather man is right) then home to repack and onto Vietnam - yippee. I cannot wait to try the cocktails, stitch, meet new friends, TALK, laugh and giggle and definetely NO time for sleeping. Megs xx
