How to freak yourself out, as well as your family.

Quit your jobs and head off overseas. Despite having two mortgages and a furry 4 legged mouth to feed.

It began as a somewhat impulse purchase of two on sale round trip flights from Melbourne to London. Book now think about it later ...

So with three weeks today until we land at Heathrow airport I've been doing a lot of panic thinking.

Passports. Visas.
Travel Insurance. Product disclosure statements.
Headache. Take aspirin.
Planning. Plotting.
Hostels. Bedbugs. Ur no thanks.
Good review. Reserve. Deposit.
Train. Bus. Flight?
Which flight. Sleazy Jet? Book. Pay in full.
Switch on mobiles international roaming. Check rates.
WTF? Switch off voicemail.
Get a new smaller laptop. Does it have WLAN?
Get a new map for the Tom tom.
Tom tom m is to big. Get refund.
Check tickets. Didn't get tickets for the ferry.
Ring Ferry company.
Move back to Melbourne. Give real estate notice.
Boxes. Pack. Sell Car. Sold.
Walk to work. Walk dog.

... and it never stops.

Despite it all. 3 weeks to go. So excited!

The itinerary:-

England (London) > Netherlands (Amsterdam) > Belgium (Brussels, Bruges) > France (Paris) > Portugal (Lisbon, Porto) > Spain (Salamanca, Madrid, Barcelona) > Poland (Krakow, Auschwitz) > Czech Republic (Prague) > Italy (Milan, Verona, Venice, Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Naples, Pompeii, Ancona) > Croatia (Split, Dubrovnik) > Bosnia (Mostar, Sarajevo> Turkey (Istanbul, Ankara, Goreme, Adana, Anatakya) > Syria (Aleppo, Damascus) > Jordan (Amman, Petra) > Turkey (Izmir, Gallipoli, Istanbul) > England (All around, see the family)
