I feel rather like Phineas Fogg on his 80 day adventure, although sadly I haven't encountered any wild savages, flown in a hot-air balloon, or rescued a princess. (but don't worry, it's only just begun)...
I'm staying with a good friend of mine (Scallywag) till next Monday when God Willing my 30 hour bus trip will begin. I'm redeeming the time by painting, drawing and catching up on 5 years worth of missed sleep. Hopefully I'll have something to show for it. Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers, they're heavily appreciated.
I am SO not planned out in this, it's one day at a time.
We'll see how this turns out.
