An elephant never forgets …

Well, things are moving on!  Not quickly but steadily I think.  I have a couple of weeks (not one as planned) to sort the house out – and there is lots to sort out!   Trips to charity shops and rubbish tip, sorting what to keep, donate or throw – decisions, decisions! 🙂

I have started packing the storage boxes, booked the space and hoping it all fits after all! Much more hoarding over the 18 years than I first thought …my BIL would be more ruthless and throw it all, as would my niece (both have experience of travelling, and change, and moving on!)

I have started saying my goodbyes to friends, and some family members I don’t see often, and will be getting some updates tomorrow on current travel tips from a friend’s daughter who’s just come back after 5 months!   Look forward to hearing about the elephants especially – they are part of my dream, my goal picture believe it or not so that will be interesting to hear and where to go!

I still can’t believe I am doing this for real.  It doesn’t feel real and probably won’t until I am sitting in a street cafe, or on a beach or trying to sleep in a hostel (to be honest, I feel for my fellow hostelers with me …).

What do elephants mean in the Animal Speak book I have – where animal totems come in to your life offering a message or insight?  Well, they relate to  Ancient Power, Strength, Royalty according to Ted Andrews in his book, Animal Speak – Elephant totem.

It’s interesting to hear things like that don’t you think?  I like the spiritual connection and hope to find that more on my travels, the cultural beliefs and experiences I hope and expect to have, one of the main reason for going!
