Well finally the flight day has arrived. We are all packed in good time which makes a change for us. John was actually home & all finished worked before I was which is very unusual due to him being a paramedic & the shifts he works we usually end up flying the day he finishes a long 12hr night shift. We both woke up extra early before the alarm even went off excited for our trip & I cannot believe how organised we are for once. We’ve just gotta do the school drop & then off to the airport we go. The meet & greet, fast track tickets & the airport Lounge is all sorted & confirmations printed out in holiday handbag all ready aswell as passports boarding tickets hankies & whatever holiday junk is in ... read more

The Flight……… OMG what can I say…….. & we thought the day we running so smoothly no trouble with traffic on the motorways parked he car nice & easy found the check in desks & sat waiting for them to open as we were ahead of schedule even bumped into an old work colleague who was on our flight & had a good catch up. Then the check in desks opened & it all went down hill from then………. As we had already checked in online & I’d printed the boarding cards out we to the web check in bag drop queue & it was at this point things started to go wrong. The lady at the check in desk picked up a “Long Lay” ticket & put it on our case & informed us that ... read more

Well finally we have our e-tickets after etihad over booking our flight meaning we had to change all our plans, which included airlines, airport lounge & the carpark booking otherwise we’d of list a day of our trip & since we’re only away for 5 days losing a day would of been a big deal. So we are now traveling on Qatar via Doha to Abu Dhabi which is exciting as I didn’t even know we’re Doha was until I looked it up!!!!! Well thank god I have a man who has my sense of adventure & a small detour in our travel plans isn’t a problem for either of us. This just means our flight is at an earlier time which is better for us as we now won’t be hitting the motorways at rush ... read more

Well I guess I better start the packing now although I've no idea what I'm going to be wearing in Vietnam. I means it's not like I'm just gonna be chilling on the beach for the next 15 days. Men have it so easy John & Ollie just need t-shirts, shorts & maybe 1 or 2 pairs of long pants but it's a whole different ball game for a woman. I want to be cool but also I have to be mindful of where we are travelling to & visiting as I must have my shoulders covered for visiting temples, so need to pack some shawls or something. Also footwear!!!!! 1 pair of wedges is all I'm taking along with flip flops & some converse. Well i suppose I better make a start now as this ... read more

Well there are now only a couple of days to go until we leave for our amazing adventure in Vietnam & I suppose we better start thinking about sorting all our packing out, what shopping we still need to do & changing our money over to dong & dollars. I have all our travel plans hotel confirmations, taxi's, internal flights & long haul flights all printed out & in a travel folder all I'm date order for as & when we need it. Yes I no it may sound a bit OTT but we are traveling from South Vietnam up to North Vietnam & then back down again, so it takes a lot of planning & organising. We will be leaving the U.K. On the 28th July 2014 at 2105 on Etihad travelling Via Abu Dhabi ... read more

So entry number one of what I hope will be an interesting and amusing account of my travels over the next 6 months. I'm currently sitting in first class on Virgin trains down to London after a rather jammy discount making it cheaper than a standard ticket. The excitement is finally kicking in, I've been so busy over the last 4 weeks jamming in as much overtime as possible to try and inflate my budget. As a result Ive probably been pretty grouchy and haven't really had time to actually think about what I'll be getting up to other than boring things like insurance and visas. I also haven't done any training in 3 or 4 weeks so the Muay Thai Kickboxing is really going to kill me in the first week. Ah well what doesn't ... read more

Hey up! Well for those of you who don't know (where have you been), I'm off to China soon and I'm starting this blog to keep in touch with everyone back home in England. Today is just a quick Hello from me and I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing! T-minus 5 days to go until I fly to China and I'm totally fed up of packing! Trying to cram 22 years worth of my life into a baggage allowance of 20kg isn't easiest thing to do! My bedroom at the moment looks more like the burial ground of clothes and shoes than a peaceful place to sleep, and keep having this re-occurring dream that I'm trapped underneath mountains of clothes with a nothing but a stilletto to dig my way out! ... read more
