Neil has booked my flight back to Abu Dhabi. The paper work for my visa is now complete, at least as far as we can tell. To progress any further I have to be there. I need to have a medical and hand over my passport for the last stage of processing. I’m starting to feel like a tennis ball bouncing back and forth across Europe.

Having a date to fly back has added a new impetus to getting all the “stuff” I want to take with me. It’s already piling up. I keep thinking “That would come in” and have to restrain myself somewhat. I don’t think I’ll manage to get the slow cooker and food processor in my suitcase somehow. I have been considering it though… Maybe just the hand blender. No, I don’t think I’ll be able to take that table lamp but I could get that small mirror in. And so it goes.

I have a return ticket again. This time it is one that can be altered (for a price) so I can use it when it suits me. If the visa is not sorted we’ll have to take a trip to Oman to leave the country for a short period. Apparently this is a regular occurrence for new expats. Now, how many tubs of drinking chocolate do you think it is reasonable to take?

    I need to backtrack and read more of your ping pong journeys lol. I love reading about other countries so look forward to more about sunny places as winter draws closer here in the UK.
