Tomorrow morning I set off for my month-long getaway in South Africa. I’ve got a long day’s travelling ahead, as I’m not due to arrive in Johannesburg until 6:45am on Wednesday. However, knowing that the gorgeous Bee will be there waiting for me should help the time fly by quick enough.
While I’m there I may have an opportunity to post here now and again, or then again, I may not. I may also take lots of photos for future posting, or then again, I may not. But one thing is for certain: I will have a fantastic time, and make lots of people very jealous in the process.

Considering that the only true qualifiers for this here blog being Irish are my own nationality and place of residence, somehow I don't think I'll be getting any notice (see also: the 2006 Bloggies, which I probably won't be able to vote on seeing as I'll be out of the country) [c/o Sigla Blog]. #link
