There is only one sleep to go before we head off on our big OE. It is finally starting to sink in what a massive adventure we are about to go on and, after months and months of waiting, the planning and saving (boo!) is over and the fun bit is about to kick off. It would be fair to say that we are equal parts excited and nervous, although Campbell is doing a much better job of playing it cool than I am. Bags have been packed and repacked, lists have been checked and rechecked and confirmations have been printed and saved in every possible format. This time tomorrow we’ll be winging our way to San Francisco!
We have had an incredible last couple of months catching up with friends and family before we leave. There’s been a day at the races (very messy), BYO dinners (very messy), BBQs, a weekend at Waikawa, a 21st Birthday party (I was home by 9 pm; Campbell battled on bravely till 11.30 pm), a ladies’ afternoon tea, lunches, brunches, coffees and lots of lots of “quiet drinks”. Thanks everybody for making the time to see us off.
We will do our best to keep this blog as up-to-date as possible, but make no promises. Hopefully we’ll be too busy out and about having fun to spend too much time behind a screen.
