Packing your clothes is probably what you think about when preparing for travelling, but like I posted in the last blog post, getting ready involves a lot of things, including getting the communications gear organised.
Today the preparations consisted mainly of those things you can not touch: travel insurance, paying bills, wrapping up bits of work that has been left hanging, and nearly all my work is communicated electronically. Even a day like today, when I am supposed to be packing and getting ready I managed to send 30 emails. But writing email was probably just a displacement activity, for… packing clothes.
The highlight of the day though was when our friend Paul arrived, who will be hanging out in our home when we are away.
