I start my arduous trek tomorrow and Emma starts her 5star luxury treatments...grrrrr.... Do I sound bitter?....actually secretly I think Emma wants to come too but keeps convincing herself she can't ...personally I think she has as good a chance as me. But of course I'll miss my travelling companion. Who will wake me up in the morning?
Can't believe my day bag with water and water proofs is heavier then my trek bag. I might swap with my porter. I'll have to drink all my water by mid morning just to ease the load!
I won't have Internet access when I'm up with the gods in the clouds.... SeemingLy they cant get the bandwidth there.....but will be texting Emma once a day to check she hasn't fallen in her jacuzzi and broken any nails! I'll give her the headlines of my day and ask her to update the blog on my behalf.
I have cut all my finger and toe nails and taken my nail varnish off, so I promise not to update with any messages of chipped nail varnish!
Bit nervous as I haven't walked for 4 weeks after suspected broken toe and my dad getting unwell and subsequently passing away. But the will to get up the mountain and on that very special train is there. Only a close to death experience will stop me. I'll be back with the essentials of life on Wednesday ( hot running water, warm bed, soft towels, clean underwear and of course wi fi).
George and Thomas ... I love you both. .... Look up in the sky and send me a kiss good night each night. Ill be sending you both one.....To everyone else... Thanks for your interest so far.... It's really warming to see your views and receive your comments.
So for now...Buanos nochas
