nearly there, but not quite

So I should have been embarking on my considerable adventure by now. But no. Things can never be that simple, but I thought that I would have at least have been in the country before things started going wrong!!

I am, at least, no longer in England, but I am about to leave Dubai airport for the second time. There seems to have been an oversight in whoever organised the Emirates flight schedule. They leave about an hour in between transfers which means that if you have the smallest delay you miss your connection and are stranded! This has happened to me twice already, meaning that a total delay of 2 hours, has meant that I will arrive 26 hours later than planned. The joy of being a free spirited traveller.

But as they say 'every cloud has a silver lining'. My lining is free internet and a glass of champagne, is it worth it? Im not sure, I am incredibly tired and have no idea what day it is, or time, or when I will arrive in Africa. Is it worth about the $5 that the champagne cost? erm, probably. It is FREE after all.

I will let you know when I get there. But after this incredibly long journey I cant imagine that I will be doing very much apart from sleeping and praying that I dont awake to find that I am completely covered in juicy mosquite bites!

    Hello Jennie,
    Do you have your own mattress man to carry that bag of possesions around you left in Cardiff – he must come in handy at times.

    Being an Evertonian I have a soft spot for those that belong to Jesus, Kaka springs to mind:


    Take care Simon.
