Well well well.. Everything is beginning to sink in and it’s about time too! It’s 10pm the night before the big day and I think I may have finally managed to sit down with piece of mind that I may have got everything I need packed away and well if I haven’t, it’s definitely too late now.

It’s taken weeks and months of preparation.. Mostly from my Mum, in order to whip me into shape and get me everything haha! Not one for organising me but when I’m crawling along with that backpack attached to my back I think I’ll be packed for all weathers, all terrains and everything Australia has to offer.

I’m waiting with excitement but also with apprehension which I don’t think will all be bundled together until I’ve checked in and got myself on that plane tomorrow. After an emotional day with all my favourite people as well as the numerous texts from lots of people offering there best wishes, it’s safe to say I shall miss many! Many carbs were consumed at Las Iguanas with Darcy and then went for Food with my parents. A quick visit with flowers to a special person no longer with me but a day full of laughs. 

I’ve never flown long haul so a small 23 hour flight should be an absolute breeze but by the time I get an Australian Sim Card (New number also – so won’t be contactable on the one ending 533) I’ll be all set up in Sydney and writing to you all to say hello and let people know how it is.

I wait in joyous anticipation!! Xx

    Your dad says spend the money on accomodation and not booze, but my advise is up the booze and you won’t recognise the accomodation
