So here's my first blog, being written on my NEW iPad! I'm very excited. It's going to be fantastic to be able to use this while I'm away overseas. 11 days to go until Stacey and I depart Auckland for our Round the World venture! So glad this weekend is a long one for Queens Birthday because I feel like I have so much to do! I started packing last weekend and my bag is up to 10kgs already - without any clothes or shoes! I won't officially pack until Saturday, the day before we leave, as I'll need to keep getting things out otherwise. As excited as I am to do all of my packing now though! I've bought most things that I need to I think, so there shouldn't be too much left to organize now I don't think, but it just feels like it. I still need to organize a bit of school work before I go too, since I'm away from school for 3 weeks. Plus I need to get all of my reports ready before then too. So there's a bit to do on that front. But anyway, once that boring stuff is over, there's only 11 days to go! I cannot wait! I'm trying to figure out what I'm looking forward to doing the most, but I'll leave that for my next post...
