I'm about to start the travel section of my Sabbatical, and am more nervous than excited.
The reality of spending 6 weeks away from home, in a strange country, on my own is fairly daunting. You take a number of familiar things for granted ... knowing where to find groceries, where is safe and not safe to walk on your own, where to go to have time to think ... All of the little things that you know in your home town.
It'll be a wonderful experience, and I'll get to meet lovely people, I'm sure.
For now, I need to get everything into my bags and make sure I've got all my travel docs ... To quote Ab Fab, "Tickets, money, passport!"
