I'm nervous, excited, my arm is like a pin cushion, and I just got a lot poorer, which can only mean one thing - I am preparing to go travelling!!
This afternoon I finally booked my flights to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam where I have my week of induction and then will be placed for my four months of teaching English as a foreign language. Then after the four months, I will be joined by a certain suave gentleman and we will hotfoot it to Cambodia and then Thailand, ending in Bangkok and then flying home.
My list of things to do still contains some pretty important things like getting a Visa application and having my police check done, but for today I am pretty pleased with my progress.
Also, I have noticed that it's almost impossible to buy a non-see-through blouse in English shops right now. I don't normally pay much attention to knee length skirts and sensible blouses, but now I'm trying to find them they have become like the Holy Grail. To ebay....!
