The end is near


In a few weeks I will leave the UK for good. After mid-November I will be on the road for about five months straight, and then I have to leave. So this is pretty much my last chance to prepare for my final departure.

The most taxing task is packing up all my worldly goods - souvenirs from travels, paperwork, clothing and random junk. The time consuming part is sifting through all the crap and deciding which is worth keeping - and hence paying the exuberant fee in order to send back to Australia - and which simply junk.

It doesn't help that I've written thousands of little notes to myself on tiny scraps of paper, no bigger than a stick of gum - most of which are pearls of wisdom and million dollar ideas. So each time I come across one of these little scraps I have to give it the appropriate attention - otherwise the world will suffer, of course.

I've been sifting and sorting for two days now and I've finally managed to fill my first box. Unfortunately it's just a shoe box, but I've gotta start somewhere.

  2. Hey Rosie,
    Yeah, I've actually almost finished packing. Almost everything is packed away nice and neatly.
    I start the 5 months on the road on Thursday. It's not exactly anything to be jealous about - just working. Not sure what I'm gonna be doing for my birthday - probably something low key.
    Gonna go back to Oz for a few weeks then might come back over to Europe to find work in some place other than Britain. I've had enough of this place, haha.
