It still doesn't seem real...I have had a few health issues lately so the trip has been the furthest thing from my mind, but with those at the back of my mind for now, I have suddenly realised there are a few things still left to do!

I have had a nightmare with a new international Sim I bought. It seemed like a good idea at the time, avoiding those roaming charges and keeping the same number for the whole trip. I looked around online, did my research as I like to do and chose one that seemed to cover all the places I needed (which wasn't easy) and was the right cost etc.

But all the research in the world can't tell you if the stupid thing is going to work or not. The original phone I borrowed for the trip ended up being no good, after a whole evening of updates to the support ticket I opened on their web site (they were not as quick to reply or as helpful as the lovely staff at Sotic..specialist provider of award winning web services and software applications to the sports industry) and being told you will see this on the screen and me saying no I can't! I have bought a new phone and can now dial out and receive calls but cannot send or receive text messages, which is what I wanted it for. I hope to get this resolved or may have to buy Sim cards on the way.*

I Had a lovely time on Friday at work, we went for lunch and a few drinks. Everyone has been so nice (see monster card) :o) Sometimes its good to go away to hear the nice things people have to say about you, its been very touching. I Got a really nice leather diary/journal and a book - The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook (Thank you Sean, I knew you liked me really). So if I need to fend off a shark, jump from a moving car (might need to adapt this one) or land a plane, I'm sorted.

Thanks everyone!!


* Update

The problems were not resolved, so avoid Geo Sim! They couldn't work out what the problem was, never seen it before apparently. So they gave up trying and refunded my money. I will be using a vodafone PAYG Sim, will cost a bit more, but no hassle ....Priceless!
