I have decided not to take any sort of technology on the trip (beyond my smart phone). I did agonise over the decision somewhat, but, after a trip to Vanuatu earlier in the year, I found myself constantly worried about whether I had safely locked my laptop away. This cemented my decision. I hear you dedicated readers ask: "So, what's going to happen to the blog while Georgia is away?" Well, I shall endeavour to occasionally update you all on our time abroad (if not on this blog, then certainly via Twitter), but have decided to be extremely old school and take a diary with me (you know pen, paper...like we did at school back in the 80s/90s).
I picked up this gorgeous felted Kikki K diary last night:
Amusingly, we will be going to Sweden, but won't be visiting Kiruna - instead we'll be in the south of the country enjoying excellent company!
I intend to write daily. By "write" I anticipate that this will simply involve jotting down some of the best moments from each day, which will then allow me to blog in greater detail (with photos!) upon my return. If left to my own devices (i.e. without something to prompt me), I suspect I would forget to report on many of our trip highlights - my short-term memory is not known as being in particularly great shape...
This morning the diary was christened:
Bring on EuroTrip2011!!
