I'm currently surviving on 5 hours sleep, one cup of coffee and the knowledge that this time tomorrow I'll be on a plane.
Hopefully that's enough incentive to complete the long list I have of 'things to be done before the plane leaves or else you're in trouble'. The number 1 item on that list is to get excited (or, as the cool kids say, 'get pumped'). I'm sure I'm not the only one that finds that returning home from a holiday actually feels as if they'd never left at all.
WikiHow is my go to website for life advice. Here is a few important (and hilarious) points from the 'How to get excited for a holiday: 9 step' guide:
Work on your image. Need to go on a diet? Have bad skin? Dark circles under your eyes? Working on these will make time go faster, knowing you have a goal to reach.
Create lists of what to do. Create a list with pen and paper about what you will be doing the night or day before. Tidying up? Final packing? Shopping? Exercise? Anything you want.
The night before make it a night of luxury. Face masks and massages, shave those legs and under arms and have a lovely bath. Be fresh for the morning!
Be healthy for the week to come. Sleeping more makes time seem less, drinking (water!) more makes you more energetic so you'll feel more tired.
I'm personally looking forward to getting rid of my dark eye bags, having a lovely bath and drinking (g&t's).
I won't be contactable by mobile, but thankfully with technology these days there's many other ways to contact me - Facebook, email, instagram, Skype, etc.
I'll try my best to post every second or third day, but I am ridiculously lazy and forgetful so no promises!
Today I'll be spending the last usable hours completing my list (and wiki's). Tomorrow at 3am I will be catching a taxi to begin my most exciting adventure yet!
But for now, it's au revoir.
