Welcome to my first blog post...lol sounds a bit silly saying that!
I won't go on and on just now because frankly I don't have much to say, yet! I am pratically all packed now (yes, 2 days early, but I'm trying to be organised!) and have just been practising walking round the garden with my rucksack on. It's rather heavy so may have to take some things out but oh the dilemma - its so hard to pack for 10 weeks!
I am so lucky that my plane is this monday rather than last monday as otherwise I would have got caught up in the whole ash cloud crisis! I am so lucky I will have (hopefully) avoided this, but maybe I shouldn't be speaking too soon! For those that don't know, my plane leaves at 10.05pm on Monday evening, so you can all think of me in the sky. After a transfer at Melbourne, I will arrive in Auckland (NZ) at 11.40am local time on Wednesday, although they are 12 hours ahead. You can do the maths about how long the journey is, but its definately over 24 hours....not looking forward to that aspect of it!
I am starting to get very excited now and have just a few nerves, but hopefully that's normal!
I will endevour to update this thing as often as I can but don't blame me if I don't have time, don't have internet or cannot be bothered!
Lots of love to all
