T-Minus 27 Days

Posted by: Emma

So it is now 27 days until our departure to the land of Oz. Kelly will be meeting me in Toronto, where we will fly to LA, the onto Fiji, then onto Sydney. Kelly, having done this just a few months ago, assures me that the flight there won’t be so bad. But, um, flying always makes my stomach a little iffy. I’m not sure how I will handle 24 hours of it. Probably with lots of gravol in hand.

I’m sure it’ll be worth it, right? Right.

This blog probably won’t be updated very much until we arrive there because this is (obviously) a blog to document our travels in Australia, not my freaking out about leaving Canada. Anything in the next month will most likely be about packing, so hurray! You get to enjoy!

I really haven’t done too much in preparation for this trip, aside from saving the money, booking the flight, paying for the insurance, dealing with my rental situation, etc. But I assure you, there has been lots of mental lists being written. Things to check off. I know for the most part what I want to do with my stuff, what I will be selling, etc. What I have NOT been preparing mentally for is leaving my friends, my boyfriend, my (his) kitten. Simply because I don’t want to think about it. It will be hard. I’m never good at leaving.

However, I know the 8 months are going to fly right by, just like the last 15 months in Toronto have. 8 months really isn’t much time but I know it will be a trip of a lifetime and I, for one, can’t wait.
