Hi There Guys,

Well most of you are probably aware that we will shortly be leaving the country to start our year long travels! We leave on the 17th April and are so so excited :-)

Lou has quit her job now and is doing some temp marketing work to keep the travel money pot going! Dan has finished work!!! No more of his 22:00 (13 hour days) finish's, which you all know Dan loved!!! All the last bits seem to be coming together now, Lou's house sale has just been completed(Thank God!!) We've been all jabbed up, to protect us from the nasty things out there. Next job is to practice packing the backpacks, no doubt that'll take a few attempts. How on earth is Lou going to cope with only a couple of pairs of knickers!?....No hair dryer, No straighteners............Plus she still thinks she can take bumper bottles of 'Tresemme' TO WASH HAIR EVERY DAY! Dan however has not got any pants or socks to take,as Lou has taken all my socks and Lous Dad steals my pants,from when we wash or clothes in thier machine. Boo,hiss!

We have just paid our final payments for tickets and have a rough intinery which is booked. Although untill the other day we were booked to go South Africa on our final leg, we casually decided to change it to INDIA,IN THE SPACE OF 1O MINUTES. You gotta love the Round the WORLD TICKET!! however we can change any of the dates so I guess we will see where and when life takes us............As it goes at the moment our planned dates are below. These are just the arrival and departure points.We'll be fully exploring our way through many other areas,overland or any other means,to arrive at the next departure point......

Heathrow to Boston 17th April 06
Through Canada
LA to Cook Islands 21st May 06
Cook Islands to Fiji 3rd June 06
Fiji to Auckland NZ 18th June 06
Chirstchuch NZ to Sydney 10th August 06
Sydney to Singapore 27th December 06
Bangkok to Trivandrum India 03rd March 07
New Deli India to Home 16th April 07

I have no doubt at all that the above will change and We'll be sure to keep you updated along the way! This travel pod will be the place where our pic's and journals can be found and we'll tell you all about the exciting and scary stuff that happens along the way.....You will receive emails to let you know when we have made updates, however if this becomes very annoying you can take your self off the auto email alerts and don't worry we promise not to be offended.......we just thought you liked us!!!!

So for now Guys and Gal's the waiting continues....................

How exiting...
...leaving Monday, just as we're all nursing hangovers from the bank holiday weekend!

Make sure to take loads of photo's and stick them on here so we can draw faces on you both in fits of jealousy.

I've forwarded this to the usual suspects Lou, so you'll hopefully get a few posts soon. Everything here is going alright by the way, like you're bothered!!!!

Take care, you crazy kids.
