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…

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…

3 Months…

Yep that’s right 3 months till my first overseas adventure… Things are coming together nicely, just a couple of more things to book… Some fine tuning of getting between hotels and pick up locations for some tours… Clothes are coming together slowly… Camera gear will be the next thing I look at, might need some more compact flash cards and a new tripod…
