LOL! There is an easy website: which you can use for countdowns, calculating time between two dates and more.
If you are on Facebook you have more options. It's there as well, and remembers your last countdowns. So you don't need to fill in the dates/times again.
Arriving currently: The photos from our trip! Overhere! :yaya:

Feel free to use any of these additional letters to correct the spelling of words found in the above post: a-e-t-n-d-i-o-s-m-l-u-y-h-c

Slowly and never ending the clock tick
while forumites decide which gear to pick.
Photograph equipment and binoculars are high on the list
but having a magical time, I would insist.

Oh but so soon the clock announce a certain time
cause we are leaving home and we are not so fine.
All that's left is the memories
till when we meet again under starring skies.
