With under a fortnight to go I have finally begun getting organised. Tonight I spent some time filling out paper work for travel scholarships etc. Finally have a bit of a plan as to travelling to Newcastle to see friends from uni as well as to pick up plane tickets. From Newcastle I'll be heading to Sydney to see family before I leave.
I've been taking photos of where I live before I go, so that I can show people what my home is like. Trying to get pictures of the beach and wildlife mainly, as well as collecting nice photos of friends and family to show people and for nostalgia!
As far as organisation goes im getting there one step at a time. Trying to tick off a few things each night after work. Each thing I tick off the list helps me to relax a little bit more but it is exciting to not have a strict plan to follow.
I depart from Sydney to Amsterdam on the 19th of January, going via Kuala Lumpur. I leave here at 15:40 in the arvo, and arrive around 0700 in amsterdam where my friend Chris will pick me up. I've got a few days respite before a trip skiing in Les Deux Alpes, France.
I'm really looking forward to the trip, especially skiing, now that everything has fallen into place nicely.
I will endeavour to make sure that I regularly update this blog and post lots of photos.
