The 10 day countdown

It’s 10 days until my overseas backpacking adventure begins! So excited right now, I can’t seem to stop this constant excited feeling. It’s just there constantly. But it’s a good feeling and it’s a true feeling, because I am so excited to go to Great Britain and Europe! A good friend once said to me “You’ll have the time of your life [on your travels]” and I think she may be right! So let the 10 day countdown begin!

Plane tickets and itinerary picked up

I picked up my plane tickets and itinerary today! Less than two weeks until I fly to London! So excited right now! I’ve waited since high school for this moment.

The Gap Year

I did my Bachelor of Journalism degree straight after graduating from year 12. No gap year, no break, albeit a four month holiday before uni began! Three years passed and I graduated from my degree in December last year.

This year, so far has been my gap year.

So I spent 2012 working and saving and working and saving, until at last, with a little (more like a lot) of help from family financial contributions, I was able to have the funds to allow me to finally have my Great Britain and Europpean adventure!

Having already heard how amazing the places I wanted to go to (England, France, Germany and Italy) are from friends and a well-travelled cousin, I decided that finally, at the age of 21, I was going to have the opportunity to go out and see the world.

I’ve been to England and Germany before, but I was only two years old so all I really remember is a gigantic snow covered Christmas (pine) tree from Germany.

So the tickets have been purchased and the time is drawing nearer. On the ninth of July this year, I’m flying to London and then my adventure will have truly begun!
