A random day…

Well today has turned into a bit of a random day. It started as the usual day at work, getting the metro and being in the office for 8am. Then later in the day I was chatting to one of the guys in my team who mentioned that they had seen on Facebook that someone they knew needed to leave their apartment early in the lease, after a little a little chat and some phone calls it turns out there’s 4 months left on the lease and the landlord is happy to transfer that to a new tenant for the remaining 4 months. So we drove down after work to check the place out and it’s ideal for us, it has amazing views of the marina, it’s got a decent balcony, two bedrooms, two en-suites and an extra WC all within our original budget.

Leaving Party, Birthday & Packing … 6 Days To Go

So really not long left now … only 6 days and counting … its odd cause as we get closer and closer to our flight I realise that there is still so much to be done … yet every time I meet up with some friends or go to visit someone I am still taken back by the fact that it is probably the last time I will see that person/group of people for atleast a few months … and as sad as it is to be saying to goodbye I am starting to get really excited about starting out on our new adventure … its a new chapter in our lives and neither of us haven’t got much of a clue as to what to expect … but its ok that its a bit scary … cause were doing this together and we have each other to lean on when times get a bit tough or we feel homesick … plus there is skype!
