Pretty Much Ready!

Final pre-take-off post on the new blog.

I'm 99% packed (just stuff like the toothbrush left) and ready to head off tomorrow into the great unknown.
(Actually, it's not that unknown, I've booked every single night of accommodation. I know exactly where I'm going to be at all times. So much for being spontaneous. I'm not happy unless I know what's going on)

For anyone visiting the blog for the first time, welcome! I've got the funky new iPad and it looks like most hotels have free wi-fi, so I'll hopefully be able to update fairly regularly, including pictures with the cool photo transfer device that Stacey lent me! (Thank you!)
