One week to go and I think the nerves are finally starting to kick in. Everyone has different ways of displaying the jitters, and I’m no different, though externally I may seem calm. The most common form of nerves I am a witness to at home are the loud ones. Getting snappy, shaky and sarcastic. Contrary to the other females in my family, I tend to have a more quiet approach to nerves.
I obsess. Particularly organisational obsessive behaviour.It’s the week leading up to my departure and I’ve been spending all my spare time looking up packing and travel tips, budgeting tips, what to do in the cities I’m visiting, itinerary makers and so on. It probably doesn’t help my nerves, but hey, knowledge is power right? Better to be aware than caught unawares.
But enough philosophy. My bags are (almost) packed, my paperwork is printed, and my checklist is down to four items – you don’t want to know how many there were before! I only have some final things to get done (washing) and then I’ll be off…
6 days to go!
