Well we have only 2 days left at work! Which is just FANTASTIC because we still have sooooo much stuff to do and sort out!!
Last night we travelled down to the BMC travel clinic in Ashford for our last visit, we had our last doses of Hep B and Rabies...so we are now both vaccinated !! I cant believe that 4 weeks ago we started the injections...the end seemed so far away! The girls in the clinic are a good laugh and genuinely interested in what our trip involves! So much so that they asked to be added to our e-mail list for this very site!
Matt managed to get a Im a brave lion sticker out of them last night!! Because his arm twitched when he was having an injection!!! He had to nip back up and get our books signed...and got me one as well!! Awww bless!!

Matt bought his day pack at last! Its a nice Karrimor one which was a bargain on ebay, and was delivered this morning, brand new with tags!!

We did a boot fair on Sunday to get rid of loads of our stuff, it was a beautiful hot sunny day, we had a good laugh, sold loads, and made almost 200!! So, it was a VERY GOOD DAY!

Once we finish work on Friday, we can start packing our backpacks, sorting out our foreign currency and travellers cheques, travel insurance and first aid/medical bits and bobs...because with work we still have not managed to get these done yet!

We cant believe that its so close now, in a couple of weeks we shall be in Istanbul, having the time of our lives! We cant wait to eat the local food, feel the sun on our skins and smell all the different smells we shall experience.
We have a room in a guesthouse in Sultanahmet booked for the first few nights, its well located near the blue mosque and all the attractions...just cant wait to go now.
It feels weird though, and wont actually hit until we have left work...we shall miss all of our families and friends, but we need to do it, we shall never regret it whatever happens...

Ali and Matt
