I am quite surprised that is all the memory you travel with. You are much more camera happy than me.

Shopping all done. I think we all have enough. The week is going to fly past as I have a bucketload of work to push out before I go.

I know. It took me a couple of minutes to realise that she was serious about wanting me to wait until I checked in!

We can probably kill our cruddy internet by then and sign up with something fast like FIOS.

It's always a good feeling to know the trip is paid for, although with DVC it usually is.

It cracks me up that you are so concerned about memory sticks etc. We have other concerns that I won't go into on the DIS or at least not off the DISabilities board. We can not say "if I forget it, they will have it" because some of our stuff is just too specialized!
My dad is a walking pharmacy when he travels. So, whilst I won't need scooters or anything like that, I have similar concerns identical to why you had to cancel the F&W trip last year. Thankfully, he's even more organised than me and when I checked on Thursday, he was good to go.

For the sake of work, I hope the next 6 days don't fly by too fast.

Yes I had to restrain myself here. Memory is cheaper to buy in Hong Kong and is one of those things that I'm happy to pick up when I need it.

I always travel with an 8G or 16G memory card for the big camera and a 2G for the small one. DH likes to upload pictures to the laptop whenever we travel anyway. It seems like I took a lot of pictures last trip, but the 8G and 2G cards held up. He never even did an upload. You'll be fine without buying more I bet.

The plan is to travel light; so we won't be taking a laptop with us so I suspect that you might lose that bet.

I'm pretty heavy on the camera and with taking pictures. Plus I set my pictures to high resolution. I had 3 days at WDW in October 2010 and came home with with nearly 1600 pictures. If I think I'm going to go through 300 or 400 pictures per day, over the 10 - 12 days I may end up with quite a few.

Today, I did me a little pharmacy shopping and something else....

I think I've gotten my little stash of legally-gotten-over-the-counter drugs to take with us sorted out. DH and I will probably need to cast another once-over this stash during the week; and there might be a couple more 'drug-runs' (legal, of course) to be made; but I think we're pretty much 95% there.


I also had Skiingfast's comment about my memory or lack there of......at the back of my mind. So, I stopped by a camera shop and picked up another 8 GB of memory. I now have 24 GB that I'll be taking with me. Might be enough to tide me over the first 5 days or so.



(Don't panic....I'm sure that I'll be culling down the volumes of photos to something more manageable for the TR! )

YAY!!!

I'm always a walking pharmacy. I have certain prescription meds...but I also know what a pain it is getting just SIMPLE things like codeine is in the USA...so I take anything and everything.

Hope things go ok at work this week so you can settle into a good crossing off checklist mode...


AS for paying accommodation in advance. I actually HATE having to do that. Although if we had with Tokyo Disneyland we wouldn't have dealt with a massive price rise in AUD when the yen soared

But it leaves you at THEIR whim. You can't just leave.
Obviously Disney is different. But any other kind of accommodation I like to know they DON'T have my money so I have more negotiating power...

In my case, I'm pretty glad that I paid up for the Kowloon accommodation as well. I got it paid at a very reasonable exchange rate and it turns out that decent accommodation is pretty hard to find in Hong Kong now.

Hi, I'm checking in again! Baby's parents haven't had much sleep, hopefully things will be getting easier when her milk comes in. We'll be going to see the family on Saturday! Mimi's parents will still be there and he makes the best Cajun food you can ask for, looking for a treat. Those noodles sound good, I'm hungry!
