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…

Everything has now been paid for that can be paid for before we go…

So how much is this holiday costing you ask…

Airfares – $4000

Hotels  – $2000

Tours   – $2000

Total   – $8000 (covers 2 of us )

Plus spending money

OMG thats a lot of money…

Prepaid TravelSIM

Today I purchased a Prepaid TravelSIM card from the Australia Post Office… Once activated I will then contact them to add the data option so that where ever we go we will have constant access to our families if need be… It will also give us access to maps and apps on my mobile so if we need directions, get lost or need to find transport timetables, we will also have access to our emails which will be our main contact point as I am told that Facebook gobbles data like crazy, so we might upload images to Facebook and leave posts but me may not reply to them, only if we have wifi…

4 Weeks to go and counting…

I still cant believe that its only 4 weeks till I leave for my first overseas adventure…

I think the fine tuning is coming along nicely with all that can be booked is booked and I have also looked at public transport and getting about in each place so I am not totally lost all the time…

Yesterday was my dental check up…

Today was my doctors visit to get all my jabs, then I see him the day I leave to gather my medications list to take with me…

Still need to organise a Travel Sim Card that will cover me in Paris, London ( as well as Liverpool ) and Dublin that I can add a data package to as well from the Post Office, also need to get a Travel Money Card from the Commonwealth Bank then load Euro and GBP and change some currency to take with me…

Later on I will let you know the tours that I have booked…
