Well, tomorrow is the start of the big trip. Been spending the last few days saying au revoir to all our good friends, and clearing up last minute details.
Vacating our apartment was a surreal experience, as our shipper had done all the packing for us. Heather was at work, so I was sitting around as an unemployed layabout watching a team of 8 scurrying round our apartment as our lives for the last 5 years were locked away.
After that it was a clean up in attempt to get our bond back (no sign of it in the bank account yet, bugger!) and goodbye to the place where we had spent the past 5 years.
Since vacating our place, we have been staying with Mike & Hazel (thanks guys) and catching up with all our friends. It's been pretty traumatic for all involved, as we have amassed a number whom we will miss (until they come visit us in London).
There is this six months of holiday first...
