'Twas the night before travel

There's just one sleep left. Well, actually make that a half-sleep, as I'll probably still be packing into the early hours of Wednesday morning.

I've had a tense few days - I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment. The most annoying thing was finding out my new 4GB memory card won't work in my camera, as it can only accept cards up to 2GB. Grrr!! And I have so many cords and wires and chargers and adapters to pack. It'll be lucky if I have any room for clothes at all.

I had a small but nice farewell work drinks on Saturday; and had a good lot of friends rock up on Sunday night with food for a good-bye nosh. Thanks to all. I guess the only thing left is to steel myself from the inevitable parting from Mum & Dad. Annoying as they can be, I still turn into a blubbering baby leaving them at airports. ;)

I hope everyone finds reading this diary interesting and amusing. Feel free to comment - anyone can, you don't need to have a blog yourself.

So it's bon voyage to me, and I will speak to you next from the economic capital of Asia...Hong Kong!

And away! Nat.


  1. fly fair, be free.

  2. Bon voyage!!

    And the best advice I ever got- if you ever feel like you are going to die, remeber that you probably won't, you just FEEL that you will (it helped me through dysentry in Nepal!!!!)

    Reading that back, it's not very comforting is it? Sorry!

    I'm sure you'll have a great time.
