I can’t believe it; I’m at the departure lounge at Heathrow. My flight is a little delayed because of the snow, but it is still going! I can’t believe I got all my work done in time. I’ve even managed to find time to paint my toenails. So I am officially ready!
To be truthful I am totally petrified. I’ve never been travelling before. The furthest I’ve been outside of Europe was a shopping holiday in New York. For once I’m feeling very out of my depth! I’m also rubbish at packing my back pack. I threw everything in at the last minute so goodness knows what sort of state it’ll be in when I collect it at the other end. I’m sure there must be a method to packing it that doesn’t involve standing in it to squish everything done.
I’ve been so busy at work that I haven’t had much time to do any research. I have got a couple of guidebooks with me though so I hope to have a good read and plan on the plane. I’m spending the first two days in Bangkok so if anyone wants to give me any advice of things to do or see then please do! Also in general any tips on how to back pack would me much appreciated!!!
