So far I haven’t gone into much detail with Melbourne, so I best get that sorted. When I arrived here, I only really knew Dan and Nat, but this fella’s social circle has expanded rapidly. Not only have I befriended many humans, but also furry things, such as these chaps and chappettes:
Two days after landing in Melbourne, Dan and I headed to Sydney as his pal Si from Edinburgh was coming to the end of his stay in the city and there were a couple of events on that we all fancied checking out, like this Medieval fayre. But let’s start at the beginning, first we had to get there, and we opted to do so IN STYLE.
Hey! I’m still alive. I’ve been hella busy here in ‘Straya, hardly got a minute to myself. UNTIL NOW. So here’s a quick update of what’s been happening, I’ll follow up with something more in-depth (particularly with Sydney) soon. Right-o!
Well, this is it. I’m sat in a pub in Heathrow, guzzling down a bottle of Staropramen. It was a late-ish night last night and a very early morning today, and I’m still trying to figure out how I feel about the whole situation. In about 12 hours I’ll be in Seoul. Am I excited? Aye. Nervous? Just a wee bit. Mostly I just feel like I’m getting on with it. When the heck did I grow up?!
Well it’s been a while since I felt the need to post anything here as it felt like there was not much happening that was worth talking about. The truth is, plenty has been happening. Break it down!
I’m in the middle of the Scottish countryside with my family at the moment, waiting for someone to come back so I can go and scale a munro or something. Ach, I don’t expect to get to the summit, but we’ll see how far I get! Just hope the rain stays off. I’ll tell you something though, what an incredible place this is. The house is fantastic, the scenery is nothing short of stunning, and I’m glad I got the chance to do this with my family before I head off on my big timey adventure timey. Got some more extended family coming tonight, so I expect there’ll be lots of booze, music, silly games and a lot of laughs. Very much looking forward to it!
What a day. My passport arrived. I submitted my visa application during lunchtime and within an hour it was granted. I handed in my notice. I booked a flight to Seoul. It’s all happening now.
See that header picture? That’s outside right now. Miserable. Summer has well and truly ended, which makes my next piece of news all the more sweet. I just got a text message from the Passport Office letting me know that my passport is being printed and should arrive in the next few days. Finally! Progress is being made. But what was the hold up?
Here I am, stuck in the office (on a total nice day as well), looking at this.
