...Let The Adventure Begin...

Goodbye, South Africa! I am off on my journey across the globe to places that I have never been.
 
I'm ready.
My eyes are open.
My arms are out-stretched.
My soul is ready to engulf the freedom and lessons that I am about to learn.
I want to feel an aching back from a rucksack slung across my shoulder from camping across Europe for a few months.
I want to breathe in unfamiliar smells and walk on untouched cobbled pathways.. untouched to me anyway.
 
I'll be going to so many new and exciting places:
  • London
  • Brighton
  • Paris
  • The Swiss Apls
  • The French Riviera
  • Florence
  • Venice (twice!)
  • Rome
  • Munich
  • Berlin
  • Prague
  • and Amsterdam!

I have mystery road-trips planned by friends and loads of other surprises in store too that I have been completely left in the dark about!  
 
It is just a matter of hours - 70 to be exact!!
 
It still hasn't really hit me. I still haven't even packed my suitcase!
I never realized just how stressful it would be... with a weight limit (shit) and the liquid restrictions etc etc...
 
How do you pack months worth of things into one measly suitcase???
 
I enjoy variety. I can't just have three t-shirts and a pair or two of jeans to see me through.... my clothing rail is overflowing with all the things I'd like to bring with!
I'll quite literally need to cut my selection in half to be able to squeeze it all in!!!!
 
I guess these little challenges are all part of the excitment though, no??
 
I am beyond ready to leave it all behind.
My problems and issues can stay in South Africa, thanks.
Things have not been easy lately. Lifes never seemed so hard and I'm sure the term: 'It never rains, it pours,' is the story of my life of late.
 
It is time to spread my wings and fly.
 
And the rest? Well.. C'est La Vie!
