Countdown begins...

Whose idea was this again?

rain 8 °C

12 days to go! Thank God for Christmas is all I can say - preparing for that is distracting me from the hundreds of butterflies (that seem to be breeding at an alarming rate!) in my tummy.

I suppose it helps that I can't wait to finish work! Just two days left and I'm free. The thought of not having to come back in here on 03 Jan like all the other suckers (sorry, I dont really mean that ) is uplifting to say that least!

I am a little regretful maybe that I didnt give myself a week on the other side of Christmas to get organised and relax before heading off. It's been a hectic few months recently and now its going to be a hectic Christmas saying goodbyes, packing, and all the rest of it.

I'm having all the usual doubts - Did I do the right thing? Am I nuts? WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING ACTUALLY???!! I'M NOT BRAVE!, etc..etc.. but I'm hoping everyone goes through these and they just disppear pretty quickly.

So, to New York first. And now there's an all out transport strike I hear! YIKES! Not liking the sound of that! I'm all set to go with my subway map that Anne sent me! Fingers crossed that gets sorted quickly.

Lima next 3 days later. This is where it all gets a bit scary....

Sometimes I wish I was a boy!

Even us Boys get the same butterflies, I leave in 4 days and the combination of organising the trip and Christmas has been pretty darn stressful.

Have a great trip and keep us updated.

Thanks for the words of encouragement Drexel ;) Where are you off to? :)

Don't freak about Lima! Really. I did - you have no idea how much - but it works out. Take it pretty much one hour at a time and breathe lots. As soon as you've been in your hostel for half an hour, you'll cope. Really. Trust another lone and paranoid female traveller!

I'm headed to SE Asia for 3 months and like yourself am travelling solo, like ta-scha said you'll wonder what you even worried about once you settle in to your first location!
