For anyone visiting the blog for the first time you may be wondering what it is about.  Well…in short, we will be embarking on an around the world adventure on the 16th January 2010 (just under 7 weeks away!).  We have been blogging about our preparations and other random musings on the run up to the departure and will continue to blog here throughout the trip.
From here, our friends, family and anyone else who’s interested will be able to keep up to date on what we’ll be getting up to …

Time’s flying.  11 weeks tomorrow.

Time is flying by at the minute.  I think it must be down to being so busy in work with conferences (8 in 8 weeks and counting), countless brochures, Northern Ireland Yearbook, re-branding, white van man and general technical ‘go to’ guy.  Never a dull moment.  I don’t mind so much because I know that come the 16th January I will be starting the RTW adventure.
The planning and preparation has taken a bit of a lull lately as I’ve been struggling on with the TEFL course.  I’ve finally got  through …

They had done such a good job that I felt that I would be missing out on something if I didn’t go see the even. So on the Friday evening after work I went up and met Donna and we ventured down to …

The countdown is on

I get the feeling that the countdown is really on now and things are coming together nicely.  We booked our hotel for the 1st stop in the trip (Hong Kong) last week.   We will be staying in a fairly standard 3* hotel in central Hong Kong.  Apparently it is fairly close to all the main attractions.
Since Donna will be celebrating her birthday there and its the first leg of our trip we decided to go  for the Hotel option in stead of a Hostel.  After that though it will …

Going round the world – how it started

Around the world…finally.
Anyone that knows me knew that I’ve always talked about/wanted to go travelling.  Not just a holiday but a year long adventure.  In-fact I’d been talking about doing it for so long and never actually done anything about it that people started to believe that I’d never do it.  Any time I told someone that I was going to be booking my round the world trip soon they would just assume that I was talking shite again.
Well, this time, I’ve only gone and done it!  I’m actually going …

Welcome to the borebags blog.  If you’ve stumbled across the page you may have noticed that its all a bit barren at the minute.  There are 2 main reasons for this:

We haven’t written (or made public) any of the content yet.

In the meantime you can keep checking back, if you want to, for tidbits and random musings from the site. The site will be officially launching sometime in October.  We are currently blogging at the minute but they are set to private …
