Well, the day we thought would never come is finally upon us and at 21.45 tonight we will be leaving on a BA 747 bound for Rio de Janeiro via Sao Paulo. We have tickets, insurance, passports, vaccinations and two extremely large backpacks!
It's now 13.00 and in my usual style I am frantically running around sorting out last minute things! Still need to sort out a few travel items, get a haircut etc!
We'll be making regular posts on this site so you can track our progress!
Please stay in touch with us and let us know what you're all up to!
