5 Sleeps

Yes we are down to 5 sleeps to go… OMG… So it better be bag packing day today… I have been putting everything I want to take away on the spare bed downstairs… Yesterday I carried it all upstairs and laid it out on the spare bed upstairs… Now today I will label everything, photography stuff and pack all my bags… This means my suitcase for check-in luggage, my Pacsafe bag and my camera bag both for carry on luggage… Wish me luck on staying under weight limits with my carry on luggage with my camera gear…

1 Week to go…

Breath Breath Breath…

It still feels like I have so much to do…

I am all organised and have been for a while but its just the fine tuning of paperwork, packing of clothes and the cleaning and packing of camera gear…

Plus leaving everything organised here for the boys while I am away…

2 Weeks To Go…

Oh wow its getting closer to my adventure to the other side of the Pond…

Tomorrow I am visiting Di who is my travel agent at Travel Escapes to collect all our paperwork… Then I think it will be even more REAL…

I still need to vote and to exchange currency and to load a Money Travel Card from the Commonwealth Bank with funds…

Then a final going over of my luggage and a list compiled of stuff I am taking…

Oh and a final clean of my camera gear after the weekend…

The next 2 weeks is going to fly by so quickly…
