12 more sleeps

So much to do so little time

9 °C

Two weeks from now we will be waking up in Hollywood. We are not quite sure where the time has gone - but we are both looking forward to it so much.

The main things we are thinking about are all the things we still need to do before we leave. It only seemed like last week we were saying 5 months to go. This weekend will see us farewelling some friends and family for 2 months, and packing backpacks to figure out if we have everything.

Eurail tickets have now been purchased - and the only main thing left to do is to obtain an international drivers license, so we can see as much of Ireland in 4 days as we can.

Well as time is ticking we must say Arrivederci for now.

Only 20 to go

rain 16 °C

Times r getting exciting in the Burns household.

No time on the weekend to practice with our Backpacks due to average weather conditions, so was a little disappointment there.

Thought we did heading to shopping centre for the warmth to find Travel Journals and a Atlas. Gee both expensive. Having paid the earth for Airfares and accommodation, u would have hoped for some discounted items. No joy.

Searched last nite on this fine site for tips in Vegas. Have found some valuable information which will help us on the way.

Also important things to take with us such as ear plugs and baby wipes seem to be a popular items on travel.

Less than 4 weeks to go

How many sleeps!!!!!

overcast 20 °C

Excitement is brewing in the Burns household, with only 27 days to go.

Just to inform every one we r having 49 days of overseas joy.

Places we will visit will include:
LA-Las Vegas-Minnestosa-Chicago-NY-Nigara Falls-DC- London-Ireland-Nth Ireland-Amsterdam-Paris-Tuscany-Rome.

On sunday Jo collected our backpacks. They cost a small fortune but we should get very good use from them. (at least we will get some GST back)

We will be testing our bodies to carry the backpacks in the local state forest getting some fitness lugging them around. And hopefully to find any niggling issues if they do occur.

Will keep u posted on how the practice mode goes.

cheers

sean
