Jim and Claire on a train somewhere!!!
Just playing with the site and i thought i post our first proper blog.
Time is really dragging now - leaving in just under 3 weeks so all my time at work is spent day dreaming and clock watching. Its horrible!!
Trying to sort out odds and ends, our passports are at the russian embassy, fingers crossed we get our 3 month visa so we can take our time getting to Vladivostok. We want to have a few weeks around lake Baikal (Siberia), id be gutted if we had to cut it short. we should find out any day now. Selling my car (old mini - im gonna be so sad to get rid of it!), finishing up at work, trying to prepare myself for the final and very expensive things we need. we keep remembering things that we need which turn out to be very expensive! just finished my course of rabies jabs which cost me 100 quid (£), and malaria tablets will be even more. luckily i had everything else done the last time i went away so i dont feel too much like a pin cusion.
Gonna be using the site to keep in contact with everyone at home when we are away so watch this space for posts and pictures.
roll on the 14th...
