Where I stayed
/home sweet home!
Just 24 hours before our journey starts now. All bags packed, repacked, unpacked, repacked with half the contents. This trip represents a number of firsts for us...
- first time south of the equator
- first time on holiday for more than a month
- first time we have packed less underwear than days away
Expect we will come across a few more firsts before we fly home. Fingers crossed they will all be positives!
So nine and a half weeks in South America starting this Tuesday...and all the gory details will be relaid to you via this blog. Really looking forward to walking out of the airport buildings in Rio on Wednesday where it is currently 30C and not raining. There's something I don't quite understand about a February day that is so hot and so dry. Sue and I are going to try and keep you up to date as we travel around South America before we meet up with our daughter in Colombia - TACA airlines, our travel plans and FARC permitting. Also hoping that RBS play their part....they have been told where we are going but I bet they still stop our bank cards somewhere along the way. We hate banks! So off to enjoy our last few hours in Blighty before we don our backpacks and put our lives in the care of Air France for the flight to Rio...
