I am writing this with little over a month left till we go on our big adventure.

Our injections are now complete, we have any visas we need to get beforehand, malaria tablets and all other official documentation we need, so the formalities are now done.

Since we first set this trip in motion, I have felt nothing but an overpowering sense of excitement about it all, but for the first time during this last week a few nervous feelings have started to creep in.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still crazy excited, but it's now interspersed with spots of nervous excitement too.  It started really with various friends and family wanting to arrange to get time with them into our diary, so that we could see them one more time before we leave and family members wanting to bring Christmas celebrations forward so we can spend that time with them before we leave. This brought out a very strange feeling in me that wasn't present before ...... and of course I've known for a long time that it's real and it's happening, but somehow this has bought it all to the forefront.

Again on Thursday, when our last injections were done, the nurse was giving us last minute pieces of advice and after having seen her several times over the last month, we were saying our goodbyes with well wishes and requests for a postcard. 

It's nearly here and honestly ..... I just can't quite believe it.
