Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!

The countdown to Disney World is on! Today marks 11 days until I’m leaving home again on another adventure and it still doesn’t quite feel real.

Happy New Year and a belated Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone’s festive season has been fab. Mine was super relaxing with a unconventional Christmas Eve dinner with close family.

2016 didn’t quite start the way I’d imagined.  I had a fab night in town celebrating New Year’s Eve with my friends, but had been hoping for a day at the beach soaking up the sun the following day. Sadly it wasn’t to be, with everything but lovely weather greeting us on the 1st.

Luckily I got a peek of sunshine yesterday before I went back to work, where my family and I took a day trip to Muriwai Beach in the far west of Auckland.

Despite the fact that I’m leaving in 11 days it still didn’t start to feel real until the other day when registration opened for housing. I currently have four potential roommates (three of us from NZ and the other two from Australia), one of whom I went to uni with and has actually flown out at the beginning of the week (lucky bugger).

In the meantime I’m still working and trying to save as much as I can before I head off. I’m in desperate need of a camera before I go though, otherwise vlogging could end up being an epic fail (correction: will end up being an epic fail).

More updates coming soon– peace out 2015.
