Holiday of Awesomeness

So today is the day! After much planning, saving, spending, fretting and in this last week- crapping in my pants with nervousness- WE LEAVE TODAY!!! We have given up house and home, put everything in storage and annoyed many mates and loved ones by crashing in their spare rooms; and finally the day has come!

To share with you a little of our adventure we:

- Fly today to Kuala Lumpur where we stay for 3 days to get massages, chilled and relaxed before our Contiki tours start

- After arrining in London we spend a couple of days exploring before starting the Contiki European Discovery Tour which takes us on this journey:

- This tour finishes on Christmas Eve and Ben and I are staying in Paris together just the two of us- right next to the Eiffel Tower for 6 days! :-D

 - We then head back to London to start our Contiki New Years Eve Amsterdam Tour. Let the mess continue!!!

- On January 2nd we pick up a hire car from London and we will be driving up through Bath, Wales, Scotland and Ireland for our own un-planned adventure! We are planning just to book a hotel wherever we decide to stop that day!

- On January 7th we fly from London to Cairo where we start out Contiki Egypt and The Nile Tour, including a rad cruise down the Nile! Our trip takes us here:

At the end of this tour we have a couple of days in Cairo just the two of us before we fly home. I get excited just looking at these maps!!!

I will trying my hardest to keep up regular blog posts and have scheduled a few ready for posting over the next couple of weeks; including some awesome Styled By Olivia posts of Melissa from Suger Coat It as she rocks out in my wardrobe!

In the mean time, don't be a stranger! Follow me on our adventure by checking out my Facebook, Twitter or even my Instagram (iPhone app), I'll be posting as often as I can and want to keep you all up to date on our Holiday Of Awesomeness!

See you on the other side of the world.........
