Seven and a bit days before departure!

My Big Adventure, as it's now referred to, is fast approaching.  The times and days have changed slightly.  See below for my new schedule. 

Counting down the days
I'm starting to feel slightly nervous now.  Before I was busy with work so didn't have time to think.  Now we've broken up for the summer, I've been busy running around making my final arrangement and buying suntan cream, making sure my video camera works & ensuring I have PLENTY of reading material on my Kindle.

I'm also hoping to get my book finished, finally!  I figured I'd use this quality time with nature to be inspired to write and finalise my first novel.

But there's also excitement mixed in with the nerves.  It sure is a different way to travel, and one that I'm looking forward to, being a lover of the sea.  I was told by a friend that I might have the opportuntiy to see blue whales in the Indian Ocean!  Here's hoping. 
In fact, being such a different way for a passenger to travel has piqued the interest of NPR (National Public Radio) in the U.S and they hope to interview me and feature a before, during and after piece, as does the Daily Telegraph in the UK want to feature a travel piece.
Fame at last for Bex?  Let's see.

Keep an eye on my blog. I'll be posting here before I leave on 23rd June, and whenever I can get internet access (sadly not on the ship, but I'm bound to get it in ports).

Until then - yasas!
