Preparations are underway

We got a letter from the lovely people who are organising our trip last week. Including FIVE visa application forms, a letter from the tour doctor, a request for SIX passport photos, and a request for a letter from our employers, stating that we are employed by XX in the position of XX and will be returning to work on XX, to accompany one of the visa applications.

Holy crap.

It took hours to fill in all the forms, we had to take a trip to the chemist to get extra passport photos, we had to make sure we had at least six empty pages in our passports, two of which must be facing pages... it was exhausting. By the time I couriered everything to the travel agent yesterday I was positive I'd forgotten something.

And I did. I forgot to include the extra passport photos. So I had to send an extra envelope. That was annoying.

But so exciting, because it means in just over three months time, we'll be on our way!
