well were finally here - although the journey wasn't great! We stayed in the Sofitel hotel at LGW to ensure that we were at the airport on time. On Saturday we checked in by 11.30 only to be told the flight was delayed until 15:00. So we hung around for ages playting cards etc. Finally boarded plane and left at 16:00 - but this meant our chsngeover in Dubai was neat (we had to make a run for it so saw very little of the airport but know its was very busy and really long)Flights were good but very long.Got to Osaka at 5pm ish and flew in and out of airport then got train to Hotel-although the instuctions to this weren't very good! But its clean and tidy. However there are strict bath times for men and women.

I think i'm ready!

The bags are packed and i think i've got everything. I've checked my bags 3 times already this morning and repacked it every time. I've made sure that my hand bagage isn't too big for the plane and that my bag isn't too heavy. Is there anything else i need to do? Andrea is picking me up in 1hr to take me through to Penrith to meet Joe (hopefully he's journey up country hasn't been delayed by the weather). Then on Friday it's back down to London, to stay at Gatwick for the night, then we're off on Saturday! Have butterflies in my stomach - don't know whethetr its nerves or exitment, or a mix of both.
