Preparation is going okay, I got myself a YHA card, loads of toiletries and bits and bobs courtesy of Mumsy's M&S discount card and asked at Boots about malaria tablets, the response to which was a big fat "computer says no". Apparently because I'm going to so many different places in south-east Asia I can only get them on prescription. Awesome.
Side note: I'm watching Britain's Got Talent as I write this. What utter drivel. It's making me sick up a bit in my mouth.
So, ANYWAY. There is not much else to do really apart from buy one of those cage-wire things for my rucksack, get a sim card for my old phone, book my first night's hostel... actually come to think of it that's quite a few things. Best get cracking!
Side note #2: This blog will be following the Adfero style guide (although editorialising is permitted and I will be spelling MIAOW the proper way, i.e. not MEOW, guilty parties you know who you are), because the place is in my DNA by this point. If anyone spots a typo or error, erm... speak to my agent. And while we're on the topic, no that's not a typo in the URL of the blog! It's Google assigning me an alternate to the proper spelling because basically I'm not that creative and someone clearly already has a blog called the same thing...
