It’s almost crunch time folks. Tomorrow we fly out of the country, not that my brain has accepted that as a fact yet.
I’m down to two suitcases of belongings now, one of which is staying behind at mum’s house. I’ve started buying stuff to take away, which after saving money for so long feels a bit naughty.
I bought a GoPro:
We’re going to be doing a lot of hiking, water sports etc so I lashed out and bought one. I really enjoyed using a friends’ GoPro in Coral Bay so I know what I’m in for. I promise my underwater photography won’t be that bad… hopefully.
Andrew very kindly bought me a Kindle:
I bought him one for Christmas, even though he didn’t want it. Now he’s obsessed. I just need to load up some books! Any recommendations?
I had my first experience at Daiso yesterday! If you haven’t been it’s a Japanese shop where everything is $2.80. Everything. And they sell everything. I bought a packet of markers and some velcro straps to keep cords tidy. Random.
I bought the markers because Mum brought me back an amazing colouring book from London:
I’ve been meaning to buy a colouring book (one for adults!) since reading that it’s really good for relaxing. This one if pretty intricate, far more grown up 😉
Such a great alternative to staring at my countless devices for hours.
So what else? I’ve been vaccinated, organised travel money cards, suspended memberships, printed boarding passes, bought insurance and packed (mostly). I feel scarily organised… So I’m just waiting for something I’ve forgotten to rear its ugly head.
I’ve had excellent farewell meals and catch ups. I feel ready to go, except it really hasn’t hit me! Maybe on the plane.
Speak to you from LA!
