Leaving Day

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 15 January 2009 | Views [336] | Comments [5]

Well, the time has finally come for us to leave these green and damp lands and fly off to sunny (we hope) Jo'Burg.

The goodbyes are done and dusted, the backpacks are ready and Licci has a fantastic new haircut!!!!!

We fly out from Heathrow and have a short stopover in Athens before reaching our first destination. So this time tomorrow, we will be having a beer by the pool (not technically slumming it but you have to ease yourself in slowly)!!!!!!



So sad, its thurs 15th 16.54pm and have a lumpy throat and a twinge of excitement and happness for you both [more lumpy right now] : ) Good luck and look forward to reading about your shared travels. Lots of love to you both,

Hi Folks!
So far, so good.
Licci - I love the new haircut. I thought it looked a bit shorter in the pic you text me when you flew out last Thurs. Alan says "what is it about birds and cutting their hair short after they get married?"
I told him that "it's called change, darling. Try it sometime." lol Plus I thought it ritch coming from a man who once sported a "Tony Curtis" style do!

We love and miss you loads. Keep the blog updates coming as we love hearing how you are.
