It's the Final Countdown...

25 days to go

overcast

So this is it!

I have finally decided the date that I will be leaving for south america: the 16th of June!! It is quite ironic because 4 years ago, on the 16th of June, I started my job with First Choice Airways ( Air2000 in the old times...) which was, somehow, another big adventure!: new job, new city, new house, new friends! I can not deny it all worked out really well over that time, so Im just hoping it will be good this time around too!

After 4 years of flying, waking up at 3am, asking for tea or coffe, meeting at the bar downroute at 7pm, leaving the bar at some stupid time in the morning completely drunk, dancing on some bars (and I mean ON the bar) in Mexico and India, "chicken or beef?"-ing, bursting eardrums 3 times, jet lagging badly, tuesday nights at Bar Med, CAA regulations, and of course the million dollar statement: "This would not happen with British Airways", among other very educational comments from passengers... well, it is time to take a break, and see what it is out there in the real world...

What a better way to do that than travelling?? I have got 3months and many places to go in so little time: Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru and Venezuela!

Hopefully, It will help me decide what I wanna do with my life when I get back... and if it doesnt, well... It will help me to avoid the night flights to Rhodes nevertheless (no offense to Rhodes, it is a gorgeous island)!

Either way, I am looking forward to this trip more than anything in a long long time, probably in my life, so whatever is round the corner in September it doesnt matter right now... The only thing that matters now is to work out how to adjust my backpack (how can they have so many straps????) and how to walk with these boots (Im trying to practice around the house..)!!

But until the 16th arrives, life is hectic right now: Im finishing University, sorting out stuff at work before I leave, renting my room out and sorting things around the house, and of course, trying to see everybody before i go... AGhhhh!!

I just decided to take 15mins off and try to work out this blog, cause it is all new for me! So hopefully, if you are reading these lines, it is because I didnt do it too bad :D

Now it's time to go back to the books, and try to do something useful for this world and myself (a.k.a. pass my degree...)

Only 25 days to go.... That is all it matters...
