In less than 24 hours I will be on a plane making my way to Brunei, from there I will be flying off to Dubai where I will either get picked up or take a cab through to Abu Dhabi.
My bag is semi packed (still got some clothes in the wash). ATM I am doing my damn best to clean up bits of the house (including cutting the damn grass) and just getting things sorted.
I haven’t done this long a journey since I first got to Brisbane about 6 years ago. Since then Ive spent about 8 days (two 4 day trips) in Sydney and 4 days in New Zealand and thats pretty much all my travel time.
I am not a fan of the traveling part. Never have been but it will be good to get to Abu Dhabi and see the family and the place again to see whats changed. Probably nothing I remember will be there but who knows I might be surprised that some of the old dives and hang outs are still alive and well.
I will be eating alot of food this trip.
I’ve got Spanky (the company’s well travelled mascot monkey) packed away already so I should be safe as long as hes with me (he has a black belt in karate and is a master of jujitsu) I should be safe at night with him around.
Olimar will be making the trip too (I am sure that you all breathed a sigh of relief knowing that)
From Abu Dhabi I will then make my way through to London where I hope to catch up with several people who I have kept in touch with from the old school days.
Rest assured that I will be taking my old camera and probably buying a new camera when I am over there so there should be at least one or two decent pics by the time I get back (or while I am there if I have access to a decent net connection)
Anyway enough mumbling theres work to be done, have fun all while I’m gone.
See you all when I get back!
