Checking Out

So I’m FINALLY on my way to Australia! I’m off to a good start too my luggage was overweight AND my flight’s been delayed by an hour!! BUT I’m not going to let this ruin my night, oh no because YVR has free WI-fi! THANK GOD!! I’m soooooooo EXCITED! I can’t believe that after 2 years of saving and planning I’m actually going to be in Australia within 24 hours!

While I’m super psyched I can’t help but feel a bit of nerves, a bit of wow I’m going to miss my family and my dogs! I’m sitting here waiting for the plane to load and I have about 2 hours to go, 2 hours before I begin an amazing adventure….and I can’t stop thinking about my last meal at my favorite restaurant Sal y Limon, they make the BEST TACOS I’ve had in Vancouver and that’s saying a lot since I’ve tried just about every Mexican restaurant in town! Plus they make my favorite Mexican treat, Bunuelos! These are the most delicious dessert, fried tortillas covered in Cinnamon and Sugar! Mmmmm! I’m getting hungry JUST thinking about them!

Also I can’t stop thinking about the last conversation I had with my mom, and how she said this trip will be the trip of a life time and it will change me for the better, she said ‘God is going to be with you and He will bless you! This trip is a gift!’ and then she quickly shushed me so she wouldn’t miss any of her Spanish soap-opera ‘Una Maid en Manhattan’, ya that’s my mom! Quick with the encouragement and then quick with the ‘don’t interrupt my story!’. I’m gonna miss that! Haha! So as I sit here waiting for the trip of a Life time, I begin to feel a calm take over, because she is right (as usual!) and I don’t have to be afraid or anxious. I am ready. I am also watching the next episode of ‘Una Maid en Manhattan’ on the free WI-fi!

Stay tuned for some more stories and pictures of this crazy Adventure! And if you think of it, pray for me! Thanks heaps in advance!

Much love,

    • Thanks Kezia! I’m still learning how to use this thing and trying to find the time to write and take pictures! It’s hard work and discipline to make yourself share each week! But I’m having a BLAST here in Aus! I just absolutely LOVE it!!
