17 days

oooooh its only 17 days till i get to go awayyyyy!!!!!! I'm starting to get really excited now because really there are maybe 12 working days or so till we go! I'm also a bit nervous about everything. I feel like i was a lot more organised for Bali than I am for this trip and Bali was only 9 days long. I've sorted out my leave for work so thats a bonus. AND the aussie dollar is going up up up whihc is awesome so now the AUD is worth about 55euro cents which is awesome and the best that its been in a long time. i'm kinda biding my time till i go and convert it because it may still rise even more and possibly i will get over half of my money back ie $100= 50+pounds.

oh well
all excitin. its the easter weekend too so i dont have to work today and its a monday which in itself is awesome!!!!

Moving House

Last week sometime I found a place to rent down here right down near the beach. Pretty far away from work though which I guess I can put as having a plus side in that I will get fit walking all that way everyday.

Walking directions to Wollongong Hospital
2.1 km – about 27 mins
That's each way!!! beats the old 5 minute walk

Walking directions to Wollongong Hospital
0.8 km – about 10 mins lol oh well. them legs will get fit for Europe I guess.

I've started packing but the place is a mess!!!!

That's all. Ill post pics of the new place soon. I'm going to be living all on my ownsome. Should be interesting!!!!

80 Days

In 80 days and a few hours we will be boarding our Emirates flight out of Sydney and onto good old London Town. i think with this '80' Number in sight I have become more excited about everything. All our flights are booked despite the dramas of getting 2 extra days in London and we have accomodation for the entire 33 days booked. Hopefully when we turn up to these places they have a bed for us.

I have my suitcase sitting in my room with a few bits and pieces that I have started collecting for us. Like the padlocks that I bought off eBay and the bright green strap that hopefully wont let us lose my bag while we are away. Also I have a pegless clothesline that will come in handy, a 1 Litre on-board toiletry bag and a day over the shoulder bag. I think Matt has the money belts. I will slowly collect more and more stuff as we go. The hardest part is deciding whether the weather will require anything that is really thick. It will be May and therefore still spring when are over there. Its not until our second last day do I expect anything to be really really HOT down in the Mediterranean paradise :).

I'll Add a few more things to this blog as we get closer to leaving. Now that I have a job until I leave it makes saving for spending money a whole lot easier. I do have to look for a unit unfortunately which will take up a whole chunk of time. But thats probably a good thing cos this waiting will eventually start to kill me.

Thats all folks.......
See ya
