1 Day To Go… !

OK, so it’s only one short day until I head to the airport, jump on my first RTW flight to Bangkok, and the start of my backpacking adventure begins! To say I’m excited would quite honestly be a bit of an understatement… in fact, because I’m so excited, the whole situation feels a bit surreal! A bit like the quiet before the storm or something…

From the photo I think you can see I’ve got everything packed (a mere 10kg, not bad for a girl!), my new digital camera arrived this morning (phew!) and my parents have all my bank/insurance/contact details. My iPod has been fully uploaded with all my favourite tunes for the long haul flights, got about a week’s worth of Thai Baht exchanged, and I have checked (and re-checked) my flight details.

The fact that I’m going to be travelling just shy of 6 months is a little daunting, but I’m really just thinking about one day at a time. I think at this stage it would be quite easy to put loads of pressure on myself, you know, making sure I’ve done lots of research to get the most out of my trip. But nah, what would be the point? It doesn’t matter how much research I do, I’ll never be able to see it all anyway. I’m just going to go with the flow.

Best dash; I have a few loose ends to tie up, and only 24 hours to do it! Wish me luck…
