Day -47: Counting Down

all seasons in one day 24 °C

It's 47 days left before I leave for Europe with my good friend Charles. I can hardly wait to land in London and begin my adventure of a lifetime. The days seem to be passing faster now, though 7 weeks still seems like a long time to have to wait. Most of the preparations are finished now, my suitcase and daypack bought, my British passport has arrived and my currency exchanged. This will be my first independant trip in a long time, not since my trip to Thailand and Cambodia in year 9. This time will be different though, since it will be all up to me. I feel somewhat nervous, and no doubt I will be even more so when the day finally arrives, but my excitement drowns out my anxiousness and I can't help but imagine all the adventures i will have overseas.

Our Contiki Tour won't take place until the 8th of July, 2 weeks after we touch down in London, so we will be staying with my family in the meantime. My cousin's have offered to show us both around, and we have pre-booked our inside tour of Stonehenge, which both Charles and I look forward to very much. We plan to spend the first week and a half in Battersea with my mother's aunt Lynn and her son Geoff, before moving onto to Whitstable to stay for a few days with more family, who will hopefully be able to lend us a couch. Hopefully...

47 days left to go before takeoff
