Another weekend at Sue's house where the intrepid "explorers to be" make their final preparations for the journey of a lifetime.
This all started back in July 2010 when Dawn being the efficient admin that she is listened intently to a "private" conversation between Sue and Bhav (who incidentally has buggered off on a trip of her own rather than come with us - probably for the best as she's tee-total!) and invited herself along.
After a week of the summer hols Dawn then proceeded to bombard Sue with text messages "Are we definitely going?" After making initial plans Bhav saw sense and decided not to go. For the next two months the intrepid "explorers to be" visited every travel agent in Leicester, Coalville and the Internet for flight information/prices/etc. The first planning weekend was born..... A route was decided - then they bugged the travel agents weekly asking "are the tickets out yet". Finally after what seemed forever but was actually only a matter of 8 weeks the flights were booked and the hard work began!
One year on and the final planning weekend is upon us - the journey so far has been informative, educational and boozy - they are now experts on New Zealand geography. ......The excitement is building and in 10 days time they begin.
We hope you enjoy our blog and enjoy our antics as you follow us around the world (please comment we would love to hear what you think) - sometimes it will be factual and sometimes written under the influence of alcohol but always fun...........
