Less than 2 weeks before the big mama trip!! The excitement and thrill of going on a 9 month journey has yet to sink in! I suspect it's due to the all the planning and the lists of to-do's that seem to grow continuously.

Our arms are aching from the countless punctures of vaccination jabs, you name it, we've got it baby! Diptheria, typhoid, tetanus, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, yellow fever, rabies, polio.... we literally ransacked the nurse's cabinet to see what else we could inject into ourselves. We drew the line on Japanese Encephalitis though. The serum was made from rat's brains, and all sorts of side effects I can't pronounce (for you doctors and hypochondriacs try urticaria, arthralgia and myalgia). Thankfully, we won't be needing this for where we're heading.

We spent last weekend packing all our worldly possessions into storage. The flat is now virtually empty and we are pretty much living out of our backpacks. We'll be finishing work at the end of March, and boarding the plane 3 days later. Can't bloody wait.....!!
