This is the start of my adventure, day one of a two-year stint in London, working, travelling and drinking hard as many young Australians do in their twenties...
That's how I would liked to have started my blog had a volcanic cloud from Iceland not shut down Britain's airports for six days and cancelled my flight. Seriously, how often does that happen?
So here I am, in Melbourne, for at least another 10 days, living out of a suitcase in my own home. It's hard not to feel lousy, and I did for most of today. Right at this moment, I should be walking into my new house in West London, re-united with my friend from Melbourne, Cherie, and meeting my two new housemates, whom I hear are ace! But feeling sorry for myself is not the theme of this blog.
I am leaving my nest to truly enjoy life, to see beautiful things and smile. I want to create new experiences for myself, and to learn from them. There is no reason this can't start now. So, post #1 is also lesson #1. I shall welcome this opportunity with open arms and an open mind. I will finish all the errands I previously ran out of time to complete, spend time with my gorgeous friends and enjoy another week of Melbourne in autumn. Wish me luck.
