Hi everyone, it’s me. I’m back! Happy New Year and that.
I know, it’s been a long time, but to tell you the truth, I haven’t done that much adventuring this year. Since my trip to the west coast in July, I’ve really just been getting stuck into getting sorted for my next adventure, which, if you hadn’t already guessed, is my trip to Australia!
It’s crazy how fast all this has come around. At the beginning of last year this was just a drop in the ocean of the hundreds of ideas I had about where I wanted to travel to, and now it’s less than a week away. Weird how time does that. Anyway, it’s exactly 24 hours until I fly now.
I’m throwing myself into something that I might love, but also might totally and completely hate. But hey, that’s life, right? (Please tell me if it isn’t because otherwise this is all a big waste of time and money.)
Today my main task is packing up and deciding what I’m going to take. When I FaceTimed my godmother’s brother and wife, who I’m staying with in Brisbane, the other day, the only things they said I needed were sunglasses, sun cream, shorts and swimwear. So basically that’s what my entire backpack contains now, plus some t-shirts and a few skincare bits. It’s strange to think that I’ll be living out of this bag for at least the next three months, and even stranger to think that I don’t yet have a date that I’ll be going home!
Oh well, here it goes.
