Eastbourne has been kind to me. My cousins have let me stay for a ridiculous amount of time and for that I will always be in their debt. The Cobar have been the best employers I've ever had, and I've had a lot of employers. 3 months is a long time, and it's almost over. With 3 weeks left I have a bit of arranging to do.
I've changed my flights. I'm going to Australia on 1st August. I may still change my last flight but that now on 9th February, the very latest it could possibly be. If I get that one, it'll mean I've been away for exactly a year.
I went to the bank and opened an account over in Oz. I'm going to transfer money electronically instead of faffing on with travellers cheques. Ofcourse, I'll need to get Aussie cash sorted, but that can wait.
I bought a raincoat and walking boots, at last, both of which were bargains, thank god.
Over the 3 months I have accumulated "stuff", and so I'm going to send a box of the "stuff" home by post. I don;t want to carry it all around but it's a shame to throw it away. Mother, expect a rather large parcel.
Solberge still haven't paid me!!
I have a rough itinerary sorted out for the south island, but with about $2500, I can do just about anything. I leave on the 8th June and will be travelling until the 1st August. That's approximately 7 weeks, so I may do a bit of woofing a long the way as I only technically have enough money for 5 weeks.
So, that is my plan. 3 weeks to go, and I can't wait!!
