Well, this is it! All our worldly possessions are in Karl's mum's loft, Hamish the cat is living the life of Riley in Scotland, and the van is off on new windsurfing adventures on the south coast. We had a fantastic send off in London last night but are feeling a little worse for wear today! It still hasn't really sunk in that we're actually going but we're as ready as we'll ever be!
Next stop Kathmandu, where we're spending the first few days planning and preparing for our trip into the Himalayas.
Watch this space!
