So, in two days and 3 hours I'll be sat on an Emirates Airbus ready to leave London and all you beautiful people for a whopping 5 months. It's so strange how it's all come around so quickly; I remember broaching the idea with Daisy in Ms Halliday's History class just yesterday!!! It's ridiculously exciting and a tiny bit 'OMG WHAT HAVE WE LET OURSELVES IN FOR?!' Not only because I've been reminded countless times that my travelling companion looks exactly like the girl from 'Taken'…yes the girl that gets kidnapped abroad- thanks Nick Travers!
So here it goes...We've set ourselves a mission to eat, sleep and drink up all that New Zealand, Fiji, East Coast Australia and South East Asia has to offer in what we like to call 'Around the World in 148 days'. We'll be posting updates from all over the globe on here and on Facebook, commenting completely objectively (aha, as if!) on all things Gap Yah. So please, stay in touch and comment away. Feel free to post challenges too…although anyone dare mention a skydive and it'll be more than 5 months you won't be seeing me for!
And finally this can only be concluded with a pearl of wisdom from the Spice Girls 'Goodbye my friend, It's not the end, So glad we made it, time will never change it no no no'
Love, Helena XXX
