To Australia by sea with an unlimited baggage allowance (Rousse)

It was so frustrating to find that both my meetings with the Scottish Government and Skills Development Scotland were cancelled. What made it worse was only discovering this news on arrival at the offices: first at Saughton House, and then in Corstorphine. I wasted so much time cross-crossing Edinburgh on a day when I had so much to do, not least the packing for my trip to Australia.

Back at the house I worked my way through my boot collection in my sister S’s bedroom. It was a difficult job to work out which pairs to take on the trip. I thought hard about the white plastic cut-offs, and the black pony skin. Eventually ECM popped through to give me some advice. At least we weren’t hindered by a baggage allowance: this is the biggest advantage of travelling to the other side of the world on a ship, even if it takes three weeks.

It really is possible to travel from the UK to Australia by sea, although the journey is longer than Rousse has indicated here.
