Things I need to do before travelling

1) Write a packing list.
2) Pack.
3) Buy travel insurance. Who did I buy travel insurance from last time? There's the company which refuses to insure you if you're bipolar, and then the other company which will happily insure you if you're broken, but not for anything pre-existing. Which is fine - I might be "mentally ill" but I am not going to flip out and hurt myself or anyone else! (Grr. So discriminatory.)

4) Sort out the jury service form. DONE!

5) Fill in and print out Air Canada's amazing wheelchair form several times. I am not being sarcastic - that form is actually amazing and I wish every airline had something like it.

6) Check in for my flight online.
7) Print out my boarding pass.
8) Check in to the HOTEL online.
- all done on Thursday night.
9) Figure out where we’re eating on Friday night, since I doubt we’re going to be wanting to go very far from the hotel. DONE! Apparently there is both a pizza place and a burrito place that does vegan food nearby. And Whole Foods is within walking distance.

10) Wash my wheelchair, because it's currently covered in mud from the Download Festival :O
11) Tell 2 x banks that I'm going to another country and they should therefore expect to see card transactions from there. - sorted.
