Yesterday we finally paid for our tickets, so we are officially departing these shores on March 18th 2009. We will be flying out of London Heahrow at 15:20 and arriving at Delhi Indira Ghandi International Airport at 04:55 local time.

We have been speaking about this trip for so long that it is hard to believe that we will actually be jetting off in 4 weeks and 1 day! Now we just have to sort out our visas for India, organise some travel insurance and make sure we don't forget anything vital.

I hope those of you who log on and read this blog won't get too jealous - I'll try not to prattle on too much about how wonderful things are!

As things stand these are the dates of our big, booked, flights -

15:20 - 04:55

15th September 2009

09:05 - 14:10

29th September 2009
Perth - Brisbane
12:35 - 18:50

13th October 2009

For the island hopping round Asia we'll book flights with Air Asia, Southeast Asia's answer to Ryan Air!

I think some people may find it a bit crazy that Adam and I are heading off round the world together when we have only known each other for 6 and a half months, but considering we have spent very little time apart in those months hopefully a change of scenery is just going to provide us with some great experiences to share and loads of happy memories. We're both getting seriously excited now and although I know Adam and I are going to be really sad to leave, we're going on an adventure and we'll be back before you know it!
