Tracking overseas purchases

Recommended Posts

I have brought a variety of small dia multi-strand fishing trace from Masons in MI USA, for my building project, a 1:24 scale of the Pride of Baltimore II.

Its been to Chicago and is now in Tokyo.

It a bit like an purchase I made from Melbourne last year, it got to Auckland than it went to Perth and back to Auckland.

We got a anchor from the Spade factory in Tunisia. Due to covid no flights and it was in desperate need so it went by car then truck then a ferry to Sicily then car across Sicily to a ferry to another car to Rome onto a train to Milan where it got on a aircraft to London then swapped to one to LA then another to Sydney then to Chch and up to Akl on train. Only cost $7000....oh plus the anchor itself cost. 

The transport from Tunisia to Rome was all done by assorted relatives of a dude who worked in the factory. He jacked it all up unknown to us. How cool is that dude, he's been sent a bottle of Stolen Rum.
