Well, you may have noticed (or heard my whining) that my site was down for nearly 48 hours. Something went wrong with my host’s server during maintenance and a couple of anxious days followed.
I had so many different things I wanted to share with you over the weekend. They are only half remembered thoughts now, but I’ll try to share.
This weekend was one of my cousin’s birthdays. (she only had one birthday, I just have many cousins, confusing!) She’s just 16 and we’re pretty close, she’s like a little sister to me. She’s going on an overseas trip later in the year, so I got her a travel 3-1-1 toiletries kit, because I am that person that buys the gifts you can use forever! haha!
We chatted about travel, and packing and what not to worry about. We talked her trip, and I told her my plans for next year. She’s super excited for me, which is always nice. She asked about what to take as a carry on and what to have in your carry on, so being the person that I am, I went home, found my carry on packing list and emailed it to her. I love a good list (or 5).
We talked suitcases too, and I showed her the one I’ve fallen for. It’s the neon green one Danimezza is giving away on her blog. I think it’s going to be my challenge to go on this trip/move overseas with only one suitcase, a carry on bag (not suitcase) and my handbag. Can I do it? I might have to now I’ve told you.
In related news, it’s 6 months today until my planned leaving date (things could change, I know, but it feels like a milestone never the less.) I’ve been cheery all day just thinking about it!
I think it’s because now I can start organising things. I need to renew my passport and organise the visa(s). Ask people if they would like me to visit them in their part of the world and before you know it, it will be time to leave.
Exciting times ahead!
I’m so thankful to have this blog back, it felt like part of me was missing without it. Sad but true.
I hope you’re having an ace week so far!
