Only 39 days to go until we leave England...
Well its finally almost here after 19 months of saving up and it still doesn't seem real sometimes. We have finally bought our insurance with STA travel, as much as i didn't want to as they are abit expensive but you can't always trust online companies and we are covered for almost everything! I'll admit we have had a few annoying problems with STA travel insurance, just with details not being put in right so we have to ring them a few times which has been annoying! We sorted out our tax for Australia but still waiting for a call off the company to finalise it. We also still need to apply for our Sri Lanka visa which we shall be doing tomorrow! We almost have everything we need, just few more bits we need to buy! I was packing my suitcase the other day and wasn't impressed how many outfits I could take...five!!! Packing our lives into a backpack is hard especially when you want to take loads of summer outfits! We also still need to find out which malaria tablets we need for southeast Asia and how much its going to cost us!
Only got 21 days left in work now actually can't wait to finish work! I really am excited and can't wait to get going but I can't help but feel nervous about saying goodbye to my close family and friends, I find it hard saying goodbye to my sister when I see her twice a year as she lives down south! Maybe when I get on the plane to Dubai my nerves will fade more! I'm so excited to have my 23rd birthday in Sri Lanka, hopefully we are going to do an elephant trek on my birthday at Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage would be a birthday to remember!
Even though we haven't even left the country yet, Becka is already making sure we all love the idea of Alaska for when we get to that part of the world! Planning all the things we want to do whilst in Alaska! She's crackers, I'm sure we shall be seeing other countries not on our itinery because Becka found a good deal or found something we must go see somewhere!
We all had a one last lovely Christmas with our families as we shall be in Australia next year for Christmas which shall be fab but strange! We've been planning our leaving party for the 7th February, just at a local pub I use to work at which should be good. Also going to book a coach to the airport so our families can say their last goodbyes before we go through the airport.
Maybe the next time I write something on here, we shall have already set off on our travels by then
