So now only 3 weeks to go before we head to Asia and, while Vietnam is remaining an unplanned adventure, I’ve pretty much planned the shit out of Thailand!!! Still unsure as to when I’m leaving my job but either way I need to get cracking on packing up the house ready to leave all my crap at Mum’s and sort out boring stuff like tax rebates and mail redirections which is a ballache because all I can really think about is being on a beach.
Pretty much got everything together that I need to take now including a shiny new backpack which will hopefully be a shadow of its former self when we get back, a new lens for the SLR after smashing the previous one during a drunken night in Finland and various other ‘travely bits’. One thing I might need to invest in is a decent set of earplugs now that Dan is seemingly going through a harmonica phase. Knowing him like I do though that will hopefully have subsided by the time we reach Vietnam and he’ll have some random new hobby like fire breathing or basket weaving.
The other part of
all this is the small matter of sorting out the job in France for when we get back in December. We have been lucky enough to get a job running a 20-person chalet in a resort known as Samoens (see photo of our new house!). The people we’re going to be working for seem awesome and, while it’s going to be hard work, we get to spend a few hours a day on the slopes and will be working in the Alps for Christ’s sake!!! We have a week at home from Vietnam before heading out to France for 6 months so needs to be a pretty quick turnaround! The new snowboard is raring to go though… Dan says
Right, so with the trip moving forward there’s only 3 weeks to go! Andy has literally spent the last week planning Thailand and each day he falls more in love with something new he comes across! Yesterday he became mesmerized with the tiger temple at Chang Mai even though that is nowhere near where we are visiting, ah well that’s Andy for you…tooled up on his knowledge so no one is taking him for a mug!
this is supposed to be my entry…
Got my new tattoo done last week so it can heal in time…really wanted something to show off whilst I was travelling so went with my biggest idea all up my forearm, wasn’t pleasant but hey check out the result!
For me though my biggest excitement right now is the fact I just bought a harmonica! My parents recently returned from Italy and my dad brought home a shiny new harmonica. Now I’ve never touched one of these things before but OH MY GOD it was amazing everything you play sounds good (regardless of the fact I cant play anything) so as a result I went out and bought one so I can laze about on some Thai/Vietnamese beach and rock out with my harmonica LOL! Turns out Andy has one too! Don’t be too shocked if you see DANDY the Rocking Harmonica Duo in the charts any time soon, you heard it here first!
I’m also having a lot of travel stuff being delivered…got my new HD underwater camera which I’m well excited about using although I can’t help but feel weird thinking about just wading into sea with
this brand new HD camera! Got my money belt and most importantly PLUG ADAPTER!
Anyway enough excitement for now, and just for the record does Andy drinking like the image annoy any one else or is it just me?! WEIRD!
