Hitting the Road Jack

We are finally on the road again. Have you ever felt held back, anxiously waiting in anticipation and lost? Having spent the past 3 weeks in Brisbane, waiting to leave has been a mixing pot of emotions. Some great, I love staying with my family, but it’s had its stresses as well. But, knowing that you are effectively stuck in a place you don’t want to be, waiting to go is horrible.

But, the day is here and we are finally packed, fuelled, have said our goodbyes and as we speak we are driving down the Bruce Highway towards Maryborough and Wongi Waterholes.

This is the beginning of the next chapter in our 12 month trip around Australia. I really can’t wait to share the experiences of our travels around this amazing country with you. Stay tuned!

Goodbye Life and Hello World

So, it’s official. Today was my last day at my place of work for the past 1.5 years. There was a certain amount of sadness, closely followed by a decent dose of frustration (but I still have so much stuff to do!) as I said goodbye to many that I called friends and colleagues.

However, this is one of the major milestones leading up to our trip. We’ve moved out of our rental (currently bunking with Mum and my youngest Bro), I’ve now left my job, tomorrow we are doing a dry run of packing the car and in 2 weeks we start on the big lap around Oz.

So, for the next 2 weeks I anticipate that I will have more time to blog my little heart out, not to mention the next 12 months on the road.

Until then, happy Friday!
