In Oz, and planning again

sunny 16 °C

Well, sitting in Australia, working, reading, and dreaming of places that I want to be......

There has been a decision, i'm heading over to South America... Columbia, Ecuador and Peru... and I can't wait! :)

Plans have started being made... not until next year but I know that i need that much time to get organised!! Especially with plans of buying a block of land and building a house in the works before we go!! maybe i should get two jobs.... hmmmm... i guess that's something to think about!!

Dreaming, I have decided, is not enough for me and this is where i'm going next... i can't wait... not going with a tour, just my boyfriend and myself going on a journey into unknown territory... Darren is learning Spanish so he can get us around... i can help out.. suppose i should start learning!

The next trip getting ready to be planned... after South America, i want to do Western Africa! Totally different culture, something that i find very interesting!!

Well... sorry it's been so long since i wrote!! i've been busy! Trying to get back to Europe, which is not going to happen as I don't think I could ever have enough money to go there at the moment with the economy the way that it is... and living in Alice Springs is a little bit difficult to get out of this place at all without spending alot of money!! with only two airways flying out of here... (and one only flying to two locations in australia) the competition factor is rather loooowwww...

anyway... best get going and get planning.... i'll try and write again soon!

November 30

sunny 36 °C

Well..... November 30 is the date that I finish work where I am and I do not have enough money to go away with... I think that i'm going to get another job.. I know i've been saying that for a while but i'm serious this time.. I just changed all of the money accross to euro's (and cried), then I changed it all across to Pounds (and cried even more)... so i'm going to look for another job that I can do at night or on the weekends or both... I can't wait to go overseas... I think that I might just stay there... dont' think i'll come back... I'll just get anice cousshy job and work my little butt off!! anyway.. gotta go... getting on a plane back to alice springs in a moment... Great... Let's get back to 37 degrees... how much fun will that be?! NONE AT ALL... that's the answer to the question.. not that it's great fun being in Darwin where its 95% humidity... there's a reason that i'm going over to Europe when it's freezing.. anywa... I'd best go...

See ya!!

How fast does time go... the answer... too fast

sunny 34 °C

Well... all i have to say is... I looked at the date today and thought "oh my god", i just figured out that this month is September... and i'm heading away in December... that's only 3 months! It seems like not that long ago that I wrote my first entry!

I'm still working working working, not sure if i'm even ready yet! At least there's one thing I know for sure... my bag is packed!! with everything that I need and i've made sure time and time again that nothing is missing!!

I'm only in my jobs until November 30 then my contract ends... and off to Darwin I go to fly out. I can't wait!!

I'm still thinking about what I should be wearing... i fly out of Darwin, into Singapore and then into Heathrow and then Vienna, so i'm thinking that I should dress cool for darwin to singapore and then get changed on the plane to Heathrow into something just a tad warmer... and hopefully not freeze my butt off when i get off in Vienna!! I'll be uploading pictures of my journey when I land and start travelling around and who knows, I might end up staying!!

I can't wait for cooler (even if it is freezing) temperatures because I really can't handle the heat (living in Alice Springs, the heat can sometimes get to you, even though i'm sure there are hotter places than here!!) So minus 5 degrees when I land in Vienna seems pretty nice right now, i'm sitting in my office with my air conditioner working over time trying to cool the room down to 14 degrees, poor thing!!

Anyway... i'd best get back to work, trying to get fit before I go overseas because I doubt that i will be going out running in below 0 temperatures!!! :)

Gotta go... i'll write again soon!!

All This Working!!

sunny 21 °C

All of this working just to get enough money to go away with!! Now i'm working 3 jobs just so i'll have enough to deal with the exchange rate from Australian Dollars to Euro's and Pounds!! Is anyone else having these issues?!

Anyway... I've got pretty much all of the things that I need to take with me.. except money of course.. but that will come with time.. Anyway.. i'd better get back to work...

working my little butt off

luv me

Well I know it's still ages away.....

sunny 34 °C

I can't wait... It's been 12 years since i've been to Europe... and this time.. I'm going by myself!! Not much else to report except that i've finally got both my passports (australian and UK) so now i can get on and start looking for jobs... without needing a working visa makes life so much easier!!! Anyway, I just can't wait to leave... December the 9th can't come fast enough!! Talk again soon!!
