The romantic notion of an idyllic time away with your family definitely starts when you get there. A mountain of paperwork and fine print reigns down prior. The amount of times I have said in the last month
"Yes 4 children"
" 3 boys and a girl"
" our girl is the second eldest not the last"
Would make me a rich woman if i received a dollar each time. Where we live 4 kids are almost the standard. it seems if you leave our suburb it is worthy of comment
It's a count down now each day a little list of to do. Less than 3 weeks to go
This is todays list
Travel insurance - much less than anticipated even with all the fine print
Ticket photocopies - not to be kept with the passports and tickets.
Vaccinations - OMG huge huge huge expense.
Almost want a monkey bite to get our moneys worth.
* a small note if you are on a timeline like us. order these from your pharmacy 2 days in advance to allow for a missed delivery. Do not like us cram a last minute appointment for 6 family members on a friday night. accompanied by a large box of chocolates for the very helpful doctor.
