It's Goodbye From Me Too

I am just setting off for Cameroon. I'll be there for a week and then I'll scoot over to Lagos for ten days or so.

The next time someone says to me "It's really glamorous all that travelling", I am going to kick him in the swedes. It's 3:30 in the morning, I am already knackered and I will be at this travelling lark until at least 9pm tonight.

Thought I'd leave you with a jaw-dropper.

Look at this big boy:

The bugger weighs over a ton!

Play nice while I'm gone.

Adopt the position. I'll just put me steel toe-capped boots on.

I am at CDG airport. I asked the Travelex chick to swap me £20 for euros.

She gave me 18 euros!!

I know it's all funny money but our funny money is worth 14% MORE than their funny money.

Cheeky bastards.

Be safe on your travels Cap'n and enjoy the luxury and excitement travelling brings! Must be like one long holiday!

Captain Ranty said...


Not you as well!

*sigh* Stand next to Wayne. Spread 'em. The hobnailed boot cometh, and it cometh right soon.

COR! I'm soo jealous that you get the opportunity to travel all over like you do, even though I know it is not at all glamorous, probably that is because youre not on the right flights its Cannes if you want glamour isnt it, obviously stuck on an airline which conveys people to and from the 'dark continent' complete with all their 'bushmeat' and dried fish supplies can never be considered glamorous.
Though I am sure it is a lot more glamorous than doing it the other way by walking and swimming like the poor people do...its amazing any of them make it here really! (but it does help explain why the crocs get so big doesn't it!
Take care have fun and remember ...wallow in all that glamour so you will be refreshed when you return home!

Be careful: The farther one travels the less one knows.

When I was travelling I didn't mind it too much - it was arriving I didn't like, because then I had to work - often to a tight deadline.

Seeing that big beast - now we know where Gordon Brown has been hiding !

Hey Capt'n,

I'm in N'Djamena at the moment, why don't you drop in? You're just next door...

I'm off into the desert for a couple of months in a few days time, so you'll have to be quick, mind.
