Well... here I am sitting at Starbucks on an overcast April afternoon... I worked today when I had the day off, but the way I figure is that the day I just worked pretty much pays for the night in the very cool fancy resort I booked us into for a night in Kota Kinabalu (type Gayana Island Eco Resort into Google)!
It is real funny... I have about 2 weeks left at work and it is REAL hard when all I can think about is how in 27 days at this time, I will be enroute to BORNEO!!! We are starting to get REAL excited but the reality is, in exactly 4 weeks time, we will be half dead, half way up Mt Kinabalu! But hey, that's what our travel insurance is for eh!? I am really looking forward to ditching this whole shiftwork shindig... it is not really my cup of tea, but somehow I have managed the last year or so of doing it!
Edinburgh is still our first major destination in terms of where we are going to live, and we are currently looking for the sharpest deal on Lonely Planet or Rough Guide books about Scotland. I am looking forward to some awesome as "hillwalking" as the locals say!
We have downloaded SKYPE which will help us keep in touch with family and friends around the world and I highly recommend it to you all! Add us - theronbergs - is our login... anyway... enough idle chit-chat... will write more next time I get an idle moment at Starbucks!
