So much left to do!
Okay, so were on our last course of Injections now, Rabies and Japanese B encephilitus. Eek! We have two more of each, and also Cholera and Meningitis ACWY or something like that! The only injection that has hurt so far was the Hep B, it had a slightly stinging sensation, and a rather sore incision by the travel clinic nurse!
We have our backpacks, sleeping bags, and day packs but thats about it. We have been looking at headlamps and sandals! I really want to get a good pair of sandals that i can wear and swim with because i've been told theres alot of creatures that will like to stab your feet in the sea haha... unintentionally of course! The prospect of getting snorkel masks is also an option, although were sure they'd be cheaper in Asia.
Our flights are all paid for and we have the itinerary all sorted, but we both still need to sell our cars which is obviously slightly heartbreaking! But if we dont sell them... no Travelling!!
I have some more work lined up which is good because we still need to get travel insurance and insure our lush camera's! James has one now as well, i think he got slightly jealous of mine..and maybe slightly annoyed that i kept taking photos of him hehe. I cant wait to get some really amazing photo's abroad, i have seen some photos from places like Vietnam and Thailand and they are of massive spiders with crab like legs and multi coloured stripes on them!! EEEK! Slightly concerned about getting bitten/stung/eaten/etc but i'm sure everything will be just fine!!
The plan for Christmas is all sorted, going to a beautiful island just off Thailand in a luxurious hut type accommodation.. figured that could be James' birthday present and also a treat for us both.. hot showers!!! haha. I'm sure most are aware that alot of hostels only have COLD water!!
I think New Year will be the Full Moon Party in Thailand.. its sounds like a real party at the best of times, but i'm sure New Year will be even better!
Were in the midst of planning a 'Leaving party' for November and its going to be Las Vegas theme! So casino and glitz and glamour! Should be a right laugh and a good chance for all our friends to give us a good send off.
Im heading home next week to sort out some old junk for a carboot! Who knows, someone might want to buy some of the things i have! I have my fingers crossed i may get a hundred pounds from that because that will pay for one set of injections!!! Everything is so god damn expensive and we havnt even left the country yet! D'OH!!
Im sure everything will get sorted in due course and the excitement will kick in more nearer the time! At the moment its a kind of stress trying to get everything sold, brought and sorted!
