At a time like this I think of the famous (and somewhat ironic) words of the late John Denver...

At 3:30pm this afternoon I board a plane to Thailand. I am surprised at the lack of nervousness I feel, but then, this is something I have been looking forward to for over four years now. I think I have booked a place to stay in Bangkok for when I arrive there at 9:30pm. I say 'think' because it took three people to understand my Niu Zuland English when I rang to book a room, and they over-quoted my the price, so now I will have to try to haggle down the price of my bed before I can get into it.

My sister Rachael and I got back on Sunday from a four day camping trip (I was going to write a post about his, but, as they say, time waits for no (wo)man). It was a test of sisterly relations, but I think we came through it well.

In the time leading up to my departure I was going to write quite a few posts, and I had some ideas stirring, but alas, they have not come about.

There just remains a few things to be done, buying deodorant for instance, then Rachael and I are off to play pirate mini golf before I depart.

So, adieu and all that. The posts for a few months will be shorter and less frequent (if at all). Enjoy your March and April and May and June and July.
