One thought on “Walkatjurra Walkabout: Three weeks to go

  1. Hi friends at Walking for country, hi Marcus,

    I am Mira from Germany. I did put my registration for the Walkatjurra Walkabout in some time ago. I have arrived in Australia, and am staying with friends on the eastcoast at the moment. I will be arriving in Perth on the 6th august at 17.05 h. I heve reserved a place on the bus with you together with my walk registration. I hope that got through. Where do I need to come to to catch the bus? Is there possibly a place where I can sleep the night, so that I can be in time for the early morning start of the bus?

    You are all doing really great work. I wish you all the best for the preparartions. Am looking forward so much to seeing and walking with you all!

    Thanks for a quick answer.

    Mira
