As the date of departure approaches, I have to organise (not my strongpoint) 50 kilos to be sent off before I leave to help me through my year in the Solomons.
So far, I have been advised to take western comforts e.g. anything that will make my life easier in the Solomons.
One dilema: whether I take my beautiful KORG keyboard or not. I've come to really rely on my music over the last few months and I'm not sure how I will cope without access to music. Most pianos will likely be out of tune in the Sols. BUT it is heavy and will likely cost extra to send over. Plus the electicity outages will likely play havoc on the electronics. So we will see...
Next dilema: My mileno bike, that I have had for years and years. I love her and they don't make these bikes like they used to. Plus I've always wanted to get back into biking, once my life settles down a bit. But again, the cost will be high and I don't know if I'll be able to bring her back.
Other than that, the house is closing down nicely; I hardly spend any time there now, just to sleep (and sometimes not even that!)
Bought two maps of the Solomons, am starting to get really excited now!!!!
Pink flats, purchased in Sydney for 14 dollars (you will find that all my shoes were purchased at cheap prices) to walk around in. Has a hole in the toe, will likely donate before leaving.
