It's called Rambling in Britain, Bush Walking in Australia, Tramping in NZ and Hiking in America.

Whatever it's called, welcome to my blog which is simply about journeys and life..... It shares stories, tales and thoughts, in prose, verse, photo and video. WALK ON RAMBLER

Jessica Watson is a sixteen year old from Queensland's Sunshine Coast. What makes her a little different from other 16 year olds is that she wants to be the youngest person to sail solo and unassisted around the world.

Sound a bit scary? And there's all that ' what can her parents be thinking letting her do do this?'
When the story is told it is about a three year old dream in planning, action and support from a young girl from a sailing family.

She has gone to every effort to prepare for this trip and has received expert help and training to meet all the risks and dangers of this journey.

I think she is a bit young for such a massive undertaking. It is an incredible feat to sail solo at any age and she her her life ahead to do this. However, that is what dreams are about and she seems to have a level of maturity to realise the dream or at the least attempt it.
