Well friends, tomorrow is the day. I can’t believe it’s here already, I feel like I just shared how this trip came about! I have a ton of packing to do before our red-eye flight tomorrow evening. 15 hours. But I’m not focusing on that. I’m focusing on “Holy crap I’m going to be in Australia and seeing the amazing Opera House and quite possibly stealing a kangaroo to take home!!” This trip will add a check mark on my bucket list.
The only thing about this trip that has me feeling uneasy is our lack of phones and internet. Is that lame? Like, you’re on vacation Julie. Take a break. While I fully intend to be in break-mode the entire time, I know it’s going to feel weird. It’s not “Oh I just can’t put my phone down because I’m a work-aholic,” it’s just…..habit. I’m used to pulling up Google Maps on my phone to find out how to get some where. And we are road tripping up the coast of the country….we need maps. So this week I’ve been printing out maps and putting them in my “Australia folder.” I picked up a travel book and map from Barnes and Noble as well. We’re doing this “old school” (sorry Mom).
I bought a hard-cover journal so that I can document our trip daily (And keep better track of our adventures for my future blog posts). I plan to use my Instax Camera for the first time and use some pretty washi tape to secure the photos to my journal’s pages! I’m excited, can you tell?
Anyways, the next week is going to be full of some really great guest posts. It’s important to me to have quality, daily content and I’m very happy with the posts these girls came up with! Be sure to show them some love, they really helped me out! I will be back home April 2nd! See you then!
