Taking the Long Way Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.

The countdown is on...

Suddenly next year has turned into this year and next month has now become this month and in 3 weeks today I'm off! I can't believe it's crept up so quickly when its been in the planning for so long.

So I'm mostly organised; I've moved out of my house and put those things I didn't sell on eBay into storage am staying at my boyfriend Luke's unit til I leave. I've had more needles than a pin cushion and with a fistful of visas in my passport and some money in the bank; I think I'm nearly ready to go!

And its just as well really, cos I think I'm in danger of becoming seriously addicted to shopping at Kathmandu and forever purchasing only those items that are compact, lightweight and versatile. I just know that somewhere out there are nail clippers that also double as compass, torch, personal alarm, mosquito deterrent and mobile phone. Maybe I could try eBay...
