    Awesome! :) I was originally going in November but with my schedule I decided to change it to this date on Friday. I’m very excited/nervous as well haha. I’ve never been anywhere by myself so I think getting to know people before I go will definitely help calm my nerves!

    This is the first time ill be going somewhere abroad on my own! 6 months feels like its really close yet so far away! haha! Yeah i completely agree what date are you getting into Sydney? :)

    MelissaTrimble

    I know! I think the summer is going to go by really fast and before I know it, it’ll be time to go. I think I’ll be getting into Sydney early in the morning on the 26th! What about you?

  • 28 Apr 2013 Suzanna said

    Suzanna

    Yeah hopefully! I’m getting in on the evening of the 25th and staying in the hotel where we would be meeting on Sunday.

    MelissaTrimble

    Oh nice! Yeah I’ll be staying at that hotel too once I get in it’s just easiest. How long is your flight going to be?

  • 28 Apr 2013 Suzanna said

    Suzanna

    Ah that’ll be cool. Yeah it’s just easier than staying somewhere else to find the place we are all meeting! I like things easy! 19 hours England to Kuala Lumpur then 11 hours from there to Sydney! What about you?

    Haha part of me wants to start and part of me thinks it’s so far away! Plus trying to figure out what to take!! Ha. Long flights but will be worth it :)

    Grant McGregor

    It’s really closer than we think haha. I should book flights soon too I think. Got no idea what to take with me or anything. My organisation skills leave a lot to be desired !

  • 8 May 2013 MelissaTrimble said

    MelissaTrimble

    Haha true I just don’t wanna leave everything to last second like i usually do haha. Oh god the whole what to take thing is going to take some time my packing skills are horrible lol even going away for a weekend I feel the need to bring my whole life with me so it should be interesting packing for a month.!

  • 8 May 2013 Grant McGregor said

    Grant McGregor

    Packing a whole months stuff won’t be very easy ! Especially for you girls haha. I can’t come to the conclusion if this is like a sensible travelling holiday or just like party time on a bus lol. Suppose the not knowing thing is all part of the fun :)

  • 8 May 2013 Suzanna said

    Suzanna

    haha yeah im exactly the same! it must be easy for guys! im still trying to decide what to pack in! i really want to start getting things ready now just from talking about it!

  • 8 May 2013 MelissaTrimble said

    MelissaTrimble

    Haha I know me too . Well lets put it this way I’ve heard from other people I know that every morning is a Monday morning and every night is like a Friday night lol but obviously you can choose whether or not to party and it probably really depends on the group dynamic I’m sure.

  • 8 May 2013 Grant McGregor said

    Grant McGregor

    I kind of thought that would be the case lol. I know what end of the scale I’m on. Beers on the beach :) So are you both travelling alone yeah ?

  • 8 May 2013 MelissaTrimble said

    MelissaTrimble

    I’m with ya on that one! Haha and yeah I am, what about yourself?

  • 8 May 2013 Suzanna said

    Suzanna

    Yeah i am too. Any alcohol on the beach is a good idea!
