So this is it! The next time I will blog we’ll be on the other side of the world. I can’t really describe how I’m feeling at the moment. The best way I can describe it is that I want time to speed up, I feel like there’s constant waiting and I’m apprehensive, yet I want to savour the time because I don’t want the 10 months to fly by. It’s an odd feeling.

I said goodbye to my Famalam last night which was hard. I’m sure I’ll Skype them loads though (can’t make any promises Mum). Also said goodbye to most of my friends would like to have said bye to a few more in person but this traveling thing has kind of snuck up on me and all of a sudden today is the day! Had some lovely pressies from my buddies in work which will deffo come in handy. We’ve had soap, perfume, a disposable camera and a note pad which basically tells Alex to go away when he gets on my nerves which is bound to happen because he can be rather annoying at times.

Well I don’t really know what much else to say (my first blog sorry if its poop) other that Bon Voyage and Adios!! See you all in Rio!!
