Well the good news is I have started getting all my injections today for traveling, I had my first shot of Hep A and B.  Need 2 more before I go, and 1 a year later, so will have to do that in Australia!

Going to the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine  next week as they have a walk in clinic in the mornings, so will hopefully get all the other jabs I need, need to visit the Dr first to check what I have had already, and then hopefully it wont be too expensive, although I know Malaria tablets are expensive, and as you can see from the malaria hotspot map above, pretty much everywhere we are going are malaria hotspots!

The injections I think I will need are Cholera, Japanese encephalitis, Rabies, TB, and Typhoid but
Im pretty sure im protected against Polio and Tetanus/Diphtheria.

Its all getting very close now!

100 days left until traveling or 3 months until I finish work :D

Today is the best day so far, as we now only have 3 months left of work, and 100 days until traveling!  I thought I would make the occasion by showing you this piece of youtube amazingness!  I would really like to visit this elephant sanctuary as the elephants paint!  Yes Paint!

Please watch the video, I find it amazing, especially as the elephant can paint better than myself!
