recently all i seem to post about is my trip next year but it is occupying a lot of my time so there we go. one aspect where i have a real advantage is that so many of my friends are from overseas. there was a meeting at work a few months ago where everyone in the office had to say where they are from, of the 25 people there were 18 nationalities!

it gives the office a real international flavour. the other reason is that loads of ozzies and kiwis come over to the uk to work and travel so i have been plugging them all for the inside line on where to stay and where to go.

going for dinner with some friends tonight who travelled round the world for a year recently to get even more info.
