I am almost ready for my adventures to begin. Passport, check, insurance (including elephant trekking) check, Thai baht, double check!
I'm feeling a mixture of extreme excitement that makes me feel I could burst into tears, and extreme panic and nervousness that also makes me feel I could burst into tears. Toby is avoiding me and even he can see I am on the brink. Hopefully getting to Heathrow and sitting on an Air India plane will settle the nerves...although when asking someone about Air India they mentioned firstly food poisoning and that nothing on the plane worked- way to calm the nerves.
The flight is at 9.45pm and I'll be arriving Thai time 10.15am. Fingers crossed current civil unrest in Bangkok is subsiding, we'll just have to ask around when we get there the places to avoid. Toby has sworn to protect me and that I'll be A'OK, so that puts my mind completely at ease :-)
Right, must go finish the packing (my beg is at bursting point, should have followed Dad's advice "pack half the clothes and double the money")
I'll update as soon as I can!
