7 days and counting…

imageOMG only 7 days to go …
I’m so excited and terrified at the same time, I’ve never been away from home and my family and on my own for so long…
Who will I talk to? Who will talk to me? Yes, you guessed I’m a chatter box and have heaps to say to anyone who’s interested enough to listen or who has a mouth full and can’t answer back.
I love to communicate, so look out Portugal – I suppose not speaking the native tongue might hold me back somewhat , but I doubt it somehow.
I’ m also a little concerned about my navigational skills which are not known as being particularly good- ask my sister whom I showed around Venice for an entire day , couldn’t find our way back to the hotel for over 8 hours, ask my husband who will tell you I get lost coming out of hotel lifts – every time. how am I going to find my way ?

Well that’s two things to conquer straight up – find someone to tag along with who’s either deaf or speaks a different language( Portuguese would be good) and who can also read maps.
And hopefully is height challenged like me so takes small steps. I hate having to run after people who are just strolling it’s so tiring…
