1st entry!

Written on: Sunday June 3rd, 2007

A journal entry from: Elective

I have decided to write this blog so that everyone can keep track of what I am doing and where I am while I'm on my elective this summer. I will leave it open for comments, so if anyone wants to contact me then they can leave a comment for me on here. Bear in mind that I might not be able to get onto the internet as regularly as I would at home, and so there may be times when I don't post anything for a while.

My elective plans are as follows:

10th June - 6th July
Kathmandu, Nepal
Kanti Children's hospital

7th July - 22nd July

Intrepid Travel Trip - Malay Basix Southbound
This trip runs from Bangkok to Singapore, passing through Thailand and Malaysia over 14 days. During this time, I may find it difficult to get online, particularly as some parts of the trip we are staying in the jungle!!

23rd July - 19th August

Derby, Australia
During my time in Australia, I am going to be practicing General Medicine, and also doing some work out in the aboriginal community. I am due to land back at Heathrow on 19th August at 3:30 in the afternoon, but I imagine I'll be pretty jetlagged, so please don't try and get any sense out of me via phone calls until at least the day after!!

So that's the itinerary so far. I will start the blog properly on the 9th June, just before I leave, so keep checking back from then. Hopefully the map feature will work properly, and you'll be able to see exactly where I am at each stage of the trip!

Hey Kim! What was the problem with the map, maybe I can help sort it out for you. Otherwise, I'm excited to hear about your trip, especially Nepal!
