T - 2 weeks and counting, we are go for launch

Just a mere fortnight now and I'm starting to get a strange sensation in my stomach. Is it excitement, maybe a hint of fear or could it just be last night's curry? My arms are now fully loaded up with vaccinations and I have a mountain of malaria pills to take (yum, yum), so come on you diseases, I dare you to try and take me out now (not that I'm superstitious, but I was crossing my fingers whilst typing that last comment).

The Final Countdown (well, maybe not final)

And so it begins, 5 weeks and counting!! Dare I allow myself to get excited yet? Well I was until i began listing all the things I still hadn't sorted out prior to my departure. Not least is the unusual ritual of paying for someone to stab me with needle sharp implements filled with exotic fluids, otherwise known as vaccinations. Perhaps for a few extra quid they'll hit me on the head with a mallet to remove any romantic notions of travelling through South America without any problems.......
