Clive here, this is my first post so I will try to keep it short. I have searched my cesspit of a room and found my old passport. I didn’t actually use it to get overseas before but now it can contribute to me getting a new one. The other exciting news for me today was the arrival of my new Nintendo ds. Now I will have something to keep me entertained on the flights there and back and also on days with terrible weather. Writing wise I will try to do as much as I can before and during the trip as it is something I often neglect. Anyway an interesting cricket match is developing between New Zealand and Pakistan so I will leave you there.
