Where's my bloody _______ ?

Going by the title, I’ve spent the best part of today looking for things… and indeed that means: I’ve tried to pack.  I did some more tweaks to my bike earlier.  Everything should be ship-shaped, just the tyre pressure needs looking at now… oh and after spending a long old while on the AA website I’ve discovered I need a triangle and a hi-vis vest for my trip, between the countries combined I cant go without them. This does not make me happy.

In other news, this time tomorrow I’ll be sleeping in readiness for waking at the crack of night.

I don’t think there are enough words to express my excitement.  I feel like I’ve almost remembered everything even if I can’t find half the things I need.

There are some things I wish I had done sooner.  For example my E111 form (medical thing that allows me to get treatment overseas) or my IDP (International Driving Permit: something that helps you out when driving overseas and you’re caught speeding or something).  I also wish I’d ordered my toys a lot sooner than I have done.  I’m still waiting for a charger for my camera that plugs into a 12V plug (without it i’m not going to be able to take many photos)… oh and three more SD cards I ordered up.

I think that’s about it. Right, I’m off to bed!

    Just to let you know that the travel insurance turned up yesterday (on the day of you leaving!)
    Hope you sorted out the triangle in France & that the bike is going well
