It is the end of August which means it is now less than one month before we head off! This week we picked up our malaria tablets for Peru, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and part of China. There are quite a few options but we ended up going for Malarone which, granted is really expensive, but doesn't have as many side effects and you only have to take them a week after leaving a malaria area instead of 4. After a bit of ringing around i discovered that Morrisons in Woosehill (of all places) sells them for pretty much half the price of the travel clinic! We now have 84 tablets each at 2 quid a pop. We decided to get the rabies jabs as well! We've got 1 more of these next week, our final Hepatitis booster and then people can stop sticking things in us! I feel like a walking disease at the moment :-) Travel Insurance is sorted, £120 Sainsburys, bargain??? and ive just ordered 6 months worth of contact lenses so that i can see! Im going to get 2 prepaid travelex credit cards that you can load up over the internet. This apparently is the way to go, you can pay with them or get cash out and most ATMs won't charge you. Applied for a new 18 month interest free credit card as well just in case.
Ive been hoarding bits to take for months, decided it was time to try and squeeze it all in the rucksack.................it kind of fits!?
