So we've moved out of our flat, stuff in storage, Frodo (the car, or better know as The Beast) has been delivered to our wonderful friends Aly and Si who are looking after him while we are away, phones have been handed over, Playball business being very successfully managed and Chris has his last week of work...it's T-10days and counting

First stop Johannesburg where we are attending a wedding of some dry good friends of ours, then on to a game reserve the following weekend - cant do Africa sans seeing some game. My brothers and their respective wife/girlfriend are joining us for this, as well as some very best friends of ours Sarah and Ross.

SA plan is to chill out, see family and friends and plan the rest of our trip as the last few months have been so incredibly crazy that little has been done apart from booking flights and accommodation for our month in Bali...pause for dramatic affect, yes that's correct a month in Bali is what I said!

From SA we head to the great city of Hong Kong for a few nights and then it's on to Bali, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and then road tripping through the states - ending in Vegas where we plan to marry Elvis style in the chapel of love ;-) perhaps a wee honeymoon in Mexico after this but will see about time and moola at that stage

So peeps, feel free to comment on any blog postings we put up, send tip and tricks of any place you have been and let us know if you happen to be in any of the places we are visiting.

Until the next time, you will find me sat at mamas home trying to get in touch with my inner nomad, convincing myself I don't need those platforms, I don't need that wonderful face cream that will make me look and feel 20 years younger, and that really this is the trip of a lifetime and very few people at our age get to do it...
