Four more sleeps...

Yep! That's right, the Very Big Adventure is finally upon us and we will be flying out on Wednesday 30th August. Yihaaa!
From now on, I'll be using my other blog, so please check in at that one to read about the VBA.
See ya!

Yak attack!

Please meet Ani Dharma and Ruby Rinpoche - the newest members of our family. Ani Dharma is a brand new 2006 Hyundai 3-door Hatch Accent and Ruby Rinpoche is a brand new Subaru Forester. We wanted to get 'Yak' and 'Yeti' number plates but 'Yeti' was taken so went instead for 'Yak 60' and 'Yak 47' for our birth years. Aren't they gorgeous?

How Many Sleeps To Go?

25! Yes, just 25 more sleeps to go before Smithy and I fly off for our Very Big Adventure (VBA)! After months and months and months of talking, dreaming and planning, it's hard to believe it's almost upon us. And boy are we ready! Got the visas, had the vaccinations, bought the travellers cheques, packed and weighed the suitcases - and yes! we're within our 30km limit - organised our journals, mailing labels and maps, sorted out a wee library of books to take (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is one)...all that's left to do is the 12.5km Bridge to Brissie Fun Run, an all-day bushwalk on each of the remaining three weekends, dinner with friends and cross off each day as it passes.
Mind you, I still haven't finished putting up the photos from our 2004 treks onto my website. I must get stuck into that, else it'll still be incomplete and I'll be coming home in 3 months time with a ton of new photos to add!
