I have been so overwhelmed and blown away by the last couple of days. Its been a crazy and bittersweet mix of so many surprises, learning that I'll never close my eyes in a car again, discovering luna park's definition of a "rollercoster", being proposed to, reminiscing, late night pancakes, gorgeous family lunches, drinks and chats in the sunshine with friends and just an unbelievable amount of love and generosity. It cannot thank everyone enough and its almost enough to make me not want to leave. Almost.
I may regret letting my friends come up with a (very extensive) travel bucket list...not finished, got to add my own yet..ANY ideas, pass them my way!
With all this amazingness comes way too many goodbyes, and it doesn't get easier. At all. Note to self: Do not watch sad movies about people leaving (e.g. perks of being a wallflower) after saying goodbye to your extended family and pretty much everyone you know for a year. If you weren't already emotional, you will be.
This time in a week I'll be on the plane, not sure how I feel about that right now. Cannot wait but its starting to hit home. T minus 6 days.
