Hello all!

It's a Saturday night and here i am writing a blog! I must be mad! ha ha. Better to keep the moolah for when we are on the road though and i had enough booze at Glastonbury to last a lifetime (or a week or so). 

So Kaz and I are down to our last month! Time has flown by. Karen is in Malta at the moment and i am due out there on Tuesday. Hopefully we will get to see some of you there to say our good-byes. 

We have almost sorted the first part of the trip. Got all the inoculations and almost done the visas. We have to sort out booking the trains in Russia but our two Russian speaking flat mates are going to help us with that! (Hint hint, Edgar and Katya!) After Russia we are not really planning much. We are going to see what happens. We have a rough itinerary which you can see on here but that is likely to change.

The only place we need to get to is Thailand, as my Parents are coming out there for Christmas! That will be great! :) 

Anyhow, i am rambling and nobody is going to be home to read this on a Saturday, and if you are, what the hell are you doing home?!!!! 

Before i go, these are the places we know we are going to:

St Petersburg
Nizhniy Novgorod
Lake Baikal

If you fancy meeting us anywhere feel free!

Hopefully we will get to see a lot of you before we go!

All our love

Paul & Karen xxx
