Only two weeks of work left! Things are starting to come together. So far I've accumulated everything I should need for the bike - fingers crossed. According to the RAC my carnet should be in the post soon (this is the very expensive document that is necessary for travel outside of Europe). I'm immunised against a few more things and armed with Malaria prevention tablets. Our ferry from Venice/Italy to Alexandria/Egypt is booked (not cheap either).
All I need to do now is move out of my flat, buy travel insurance, change my rear tyre, replace the chain and sprockets on the bike, work out how to pack four months worth of stuff on a motorcycle, and well, get rolling!
