We've Bought Our Tickets

Jan 19, 2005 by glennji

In my last post, I completely forgot the whole point, which is:

We’ve bought our tickets.

It’s all official now – we’re leaving on the 9th of July. A stop-over in Dubai (of several hours; nothing like sleeping in an airport terminal to readjust the body-clock), then on to Paris for a week. From Paris, we’re off to London, and then whenever we feel like it (probably a few days later) we’ll be on the train to Edinburgh, Scotland.

We’ve got friends in London at the moment (quite a few actually), which makes both celebrating and accommodation that much easier. It’s very exciting! We’ve got a big ol' calendar on the wall now, and we cross off each day like a Christmas advent calendar.

Tonight we’re looking at hotels in Paris. So many hotels!

We’re leaving this year. Spooky.

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
