Well, it’s been a while, but it’s not like there’s been a shortage of things happening! Here’s we’s goes.
Just to be clear about the title there, I didn’t move to New Zealand, I went for a visit and moved into a new place when I got back to Brisbane. Anyways, as mentioned in the last post, I went over to visit the lovely Sarah as it was her birthday – haha, now everyone knows you’re old!
Well when Nat asked me if I wanted to go up to Brisbane with her for a weekend to celebrate her cousin Ross’s birthday I jumped at the opportunity – right after checking the state of my funds. Holidays again! Hey, that’s half of what this working holiday malarky is about, remember? So I took a Friday off work and got explorin’.
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.
Wednesday I went for a wander about the area where the hostel is. It seems like everywhere is bustling with people looking around shops and getting some scran on the go.
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?!
