    ...to go travelling round the world. I leave Plymouth tomorrow, then fly out on Monday to New Zealand where I'll spend the next 12 months! Also get stop offs in Bangkok and Dubai with Australia and Japan on the 'to visit' list. I've been planning this for years and suddenly it all begins tomorrow. Oh and also, I've never travelled any great distance or even flown anywhere :shock: Really excited yet really nervous at the same time - it's like the feeling you get when you're just about to start at new school.

    Wish me luck as I think I'll need it, will be back online whenever I can!

    Enjoy your travels, take a deep lung-full of everything you wish to remember and keep in touch every now and again if possible.

    Hi there.

    That sounds great, it sounds like it's going to be one helluva experience - y'know, of the once in a lifetime kind! :thumbleft:
    I sure hope you'll have a lot of great experiences, get to see a lot of exciting places - and get to have fun at the same time. ;)
    Take good care of yourself, and please - if you can - keep us updated on your travels. ;)

    Cheers,

    Maria.

    P.S.: Found this - this ought to be a fitting and appropriate song for you for the time being. ;)

    Ditto on the Texas visit! Let us know if you're gonna stop by the area! Have fun in NZ (and other points), take lots of pics, check back occasionally, and stay safe! :occasion5:
