So here I am! Sitting at Gate 57 at Sydney Airport. The excitement has kicked in now.
After my 2.45am wake up call, I have now said goodbye to mum and dad (mum cried of course hehe I'll miss you guys) and I have passed through customs and bag check.
I have all the essentials packed in my hand bag. Water, chewing gym, iPad (with books downloaded), magazines, compression socks and all the other bits and pieces needed for a long haul flight. I have even bought this new type of drink that is apparently meant to help on long flights (I am a sucker for good product marketing).
I can't wait to see two of my oldest friends in London. It will be good to see some familiar faces and I am sure they will feel the same.
First stop, Dubai...
Ps. Thanks Banna for Christopher- mum has packed him somewhere in my bag.
