Well after a crazy week of packing and last minute panics, we think we are finally there!! We have one last night at home before we head off to Heathrow tomorrow. Ollie decided that 4 jumpers for South East Asia was a little excessive and after trying to negotiate which ones to take, Ollie won and my bag has now got lots of room (but i'm sure i will fill this gap once i hit the markets and shops hehe!) Well i have had a lovely week at home seeing as many friends and family as possible. Ollie's mom and dad joined us for our last weekend, and what do you do when you have visiters from Devon, you take them for a curry. Saturday night was our 'Leaving Party night', i think we can quite happily say that it was a fantastic night for all (thanks to all the cheap Aldi booze ). I have put some photos on from the party. Ollie and I would just like to let you all know that we will miss you all very much, but i'm sure that a year will pass by so quickly that you won't have time to miss us. Not sure i will sleep tonight, i hope we have packed everything, i only have a few hours to justify to Ollie that hair straightners are a necessity on a round the world trip!
Anyway i hope you all get this message via your email accounts,

Next stop Hong Kong ...................................
