Well, the money is paid, the vaccines are started, prices have been researched for flights, and I now feel utterly broke, but utterly thrilled all at the same time! Thailand in October, its hard to get my head around. But the mere thought of all the things I am going to experience, and all the places I am going to see is enough to cause butterflies and the head to spin (although maybe thats just all the drugs from this morning's vaccine appointment). It just makes going to the menial sales assistant job more bearable, and the spiralling balance on the bank account less important.
It has even changed the way I shop for clothes. Every trip into a clothes shop results in me saying 'ah but thats too heavy to be worn in 30 degree Thai heat'. I have managed to find a pair of linen white trousers, a white dress and a few shorts and t-shirts. But I have even been told not to bring many clothes, and to instead save the clothes money until I arrive over there, and I will apparently get clother suited to the climate for a fraction of Irish prices (even compared to Penneys! Shocking)
So now, all thats left to do for the minute is figure out what day to fly into Bangkok (on or before the 10th I have been told) and also to sort all the paper work out, and top up my 120 hour course with a 20 hour add on to meet requirement. Busy bee me be.
