1st Leg

Nambucca Heads to Newcastle

semi-overcast 32 °C

Finally packed everything last night with some help from Gaby and Mum. Not taking too much crap! Got everything into my big hiking bag, plenty of warm clothes etc.
Took the train to Newcastle on tuesday to see the college friends, sell textbooks and pick up flight tickets. It's a 5 Hour train ride, but I splashed out and went 1st class (ended up with a sleeper cabin to myself ).

Tuesday I picked up copies of my ticket and student card. Tuesday night I caught up with people who were still staying on college...or just hanging about in Newcastle. Definitely missing a few people from this photo who I saw, including...David Uka... Liam Carver...who were probably at the gym.
Was good seeing a few familiar faces before I leave.

Wednesday I organised my travel currency card and bought a nice new jacket, its a down insulated one thats waterproof which should keep me toasty. I also picked up my nice new carry on luggage courtesy of my Auntie Helen & Uncle Dan, definitely going to be a smart looking student if nothing else.

Wednesday, thursday, friday and saturday morning I am spending with family before I leave.

Really looking forward to arriving in Amsterdam, not so much the flight there! Apparently the canals should be frozen over and I can try my hand (foot?) at ice skating on them! If I'm not too tired that is.
