Come with us now on a journey through time and space…or from England to Australia…We (Sarah and Craig) have been dreaming about going travelling all year (we met on New Year’s Eve 2010) and now we are finally Nearly Ready! So sorry to all our friends and family for having to listen to us waffling on and on about going…hence the blog where I can secretly waffle away! We went to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand in March this year to try to satisfy the wanderlust but I think it just made it worse :)

Our working holiday visas say we have to be in Australia before August 2012 so we thought rather than flying (24 hours trapped in a stinky hot plane with *shudder* other people) we’d go the long way via Russia and China on the Trans-Manchurian Express, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia first. The exact route will all depend on how quickly we spend our cash and whether we end up killing each other.

We have done literally no planning yet (December 2011) even though we’re leaving next month as a) all our energy has been used up in the stressful events of the past few months and b) where’s the fun in that?! Aside from the injections, visas and train tickets for Russia (yet to be bought), all we are doing at the moment is being excited and trying not to do spontaneous jigs of joy at work at the thought of not having to work for up to 8 months and saying goodbye to England…whether this approach is entirely sensible will become apparent shortly.

So we don’t know exactly where we’re going…or when…or when we’ll be back…but it’s not an adventure if little details like that are all decided beforehand.

See you on the other side…of the world :)
