With our pet ready to be exported, we treat him for his final days! It is not goodbye, it is see you soon little man.
In this episode, we got our Dog a penthouse!! For months now, we have been jumping through endless hoops to prepare for our whippet Marley's export from Malaysia to New Zealand and onwards to our home country of Australia. This has been our entire hold up for our departure to Indonesia and our return trip home. We wanted to make sure everything was in order for Marley's departure before we ourselves begin our trip. Finally everything appeared to be in order and Marley was about to fly. With only a few days left of hanging out together, we wanted to treat the little guy. He is such a major part of our family and this is the only way to get him home with us. So putting on our big boy pants, we made the arrangements to have Marley fly home to Australia.
We are trying to leave Malaysia and head home to Australia with our dog. How do we get him home!!!
In this episode, we are out on another shakedown sail as the countdown begins for our departure to Indonesia and onwards to Australia. Nandji is close to ready, we are more than ready but we need to finalise the export of our pet dog. It has been an extremely stressful time trying to prepare the necessary documents for our dog to travel home. We have invested a whole lot of time and money for this process to run smoothly, including the use of a "skilled" agent... More problems, more hurdles and more delays... It is as if the world is against us and we can't get us or our hound home!
A shake down sail wouldn't be complete unless things broke!! That's why we have them I guess...
In this episode, we are out sailing and going through Nandji's systems to make sure everything works. We have been living at anchor for a few days, learning what life is like living on Nandji once again. We need to head back into the marina to continue our preparations for leaving and finalise Marley's departure to New Zealand, with a little breeze, we head back towards the marina. We are on a shakedown, so as the wind was blowing, the sails go up.... Then they all fall down.... We need to head back in to the marina for repairs instead!!
With a strict lockdown looming, we need to get out! Let's go sailing!
In this episode, we narrowly escape the regulations and head out for a shakedown sail before strict lockdown rules are implied to the country. We want to get out of the confinements of the marina and be at anchor where life is more normal. With strict regulations coming into play at mid night, we take the opportunity to head out for further sea trials of Nandji in preparation for leaving Malaysia soon. We want to test out all the systems on Nandji and make sure she is ready for the long journey ahead, sailing back to Australia.
