So T-21 days until we set off on our big adventure.  Gayle is in Dubai for a few days (forty-eighth business trip in the last 6 months it feels like), I'm at home getting to grips with this blogging lark and thinking about the fact I've only got 3 weeks to get myself into shape before humping a 65kg backpack around a part of the world about which I knew diddly squat until 3 months ago.

Preparations are going well (I think).  It hasn't really hit me that we're going on holiday for 12 weeks.  Oddly it doesn't feel like planning for a holiday, and I have no idea how I'm going to feel about being away for so long.  When I think about it I feel partly guilty for being away from work for so long - how perverse I tell myself.  It only really starts to sink in when the nurse keeps sinking whacking great needles into my arms (3 to date, and another 4 to look forward to...).
The question I get asked most often is whether we've finalised our itinerary, erm well we know where we're staying for the first week or so, and had two amazing tours planned to Iguazu Falls and Patagonia.  But last week the first wheels fell off when the Iguazu trip was cancelled because the tour company can't find any acommodation as it's Easter weekend.  Oof course we've booked and paid for fllights already so I've been busy scouring the web for some accommodation ideas - I just hope the hostel I've booked is a) there when we arrive, and b) clean.  Watch this space as they say....
My teach yourself Spanish lessons have fizzled out a little bit - I need some inspiration to get back on track - I feel some cramming coming on in the last week and on the flight to BA....
