This trip has been on my mind constantly for the past 6 months.It has ever so slowly crept up on me. But today, suddenly, we can say that tomorrow is the big day! How did that happen? In 24 hours we’re setting off on a Great Adventure!

I finally secured myself a new backpack (procrastinator, moi?), got travel insurance, activated my bank card outside Europe, scanned documents and printed flight schedules. All admin chores are behind me. To say it with the words of John Denver (yes, really):

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go…

So now I have the time to get really REALLY nervous. I’m sure that another sleepless night lies ahead. Full of self-loathing and fear – about the unknown, the goodbyes I have to say. The most difficult goodbyes are yet to come. My stomach is churning, my stress levels are going through the roof and I’m wondering why on earth am I putting myself through this??
And yet, tomorrow, when we get on that plane, we will be relieved, excited, incredulous, looking at each other and grinning: is this really happening? Wow! And I know for sure we will forget all the grief that preparing for this trip has caused.


So tomorrow we’re flying to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, where we will spend 2 days. A wee city break before travelling on to Australia :-)
