The last of my travel documents arrived today, making it all official: I'm going to Bhutan.
The intricacies of visiting Bhutan mean I will be on a group tour, but I've found out this morning there will only be five of us on the group, which is perfect. Also perfect is that I won't be the only single traveller in the group — there's nothing quite like being the only single person in a flock of couples, after all.
For those of you playing along at home, I'll be wending my way through Bhutan according to this itinerary, although I'll be waiting until I hit the thin altitude air before deciding whether I'll be able to cope with the trekking option.
I've memorised how to say kuzuzangpo la, but the next phrase I need to conquer will be along the lines of "Do you have anything less spicy?" and "Too hot!" because those Bhutanese eat chilli with everything, and sometimes as a meal in itself.
I have 6GB of memory card for the camera, and I'm still nervous it won't be enough.
