Leaving HomeSeptember 1, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 17 °C
I haven't been overseas since my honeymoon in 2014. So having a month off and heading to the USA is a pretty wonderful feeling. It's also the first time that Chris and I have been overseas together to anywhere other than New Zealand. So it's pretty special for us both.
Getting to this point has been a bit of an ordeal. After being quite ill earlier in the year, my client load skyrocketed, so it's been full steam ahead for me ever since May and I feel a bit like I've just fallen over the line to get here. But no more psychologising for a month. Of course since I finished work two days ago, there's been a mad scramble to prepare, but it'll all be worth it.
On the bus on the way in to the Newcastle Interchange, the bus driver was whistling along to Michael Jackson's Beat It. The music was turned up and this guy could whistle. He was the Dame Joan of whistlers at her coloratura best. This guy couldn't just whistle Dixie, he owned Dixie. So it was hard to resist the upbeat positive vibe in the bus and I feel that, even though I haven't slowed down yet, it's now only a matter of time. We have a wonderful trip planned and I'm going to share it with you as we go. Feel free to dip in and out as you please. Feeling good. See you on the road 😀Read more
