...BUT I do know when I'll be back again. In 6 weeks time :-)
Thanks to my amazing family and friends for coming along to my good luck meal last week. I promise not to get beheaded, kidnapped, contract rabies or fall in love with a tour guide. Well I'll try not to do all those things anyway.
A friend at work sent me a TED video he saw that reminded him of my penguin quest. If you have 15 minutes spare, its worth a watch...you won't regret it.

I thought I'd put a few details on here for how you can contact me while I'm away... I'll be staying at Elements Lodge in Table View. Details can be found on their website: http://.elements-capetown.com/
(Just in case you need to contact me in an emergency or want to send me presents...)
The rehabilitation centre I'll be working in 5 days a week is called SANCCOB, also located in Table View. A non-profit organization dedicated to conserving seabirds, especially threatened species like the African penguin. They've treated over 90,000 seabirds since they opened in 1968 and currently have a record 570 rescued penguin chicks needing care and attention..can't wait to get my hands on them! :-)
Feel free to adopt a penguin or two: http://www.sanccob.co.za/
My Skype username is ria85xx
I'm taking my Kindle Fire and the lodge has free wifi so I'll be able to Skype most evenings hopefully. Just drop me a text, whatsapp or FB message!
Please leave me lots of amusing/sarcastic/entertaining comments or messages on this blog as I'm going to miss you lots and lots.
