Thought i'd just make sure this blog thing was actually working before getting away. So I'm off in 3 days time still not packed but i think i've got most things sorted now an the reality of the trip starting to sink in, feeling pretty excited but also a little nervous - reckon as long as i don't get stuck next to some fat sweatty bloke on the plane i'll be ok! Thanks for the quality send off on Friday had a superb night!!! So I guess i best shoot off an start sorting a few things out! I'll see you all in about 5 months unless i get deported before then! Take care an keep in touch!
