Gee, it’s been a while since Lindsay, Brianna, and I posted here!
Let’s change that with an update on what we’ve been up to.
First off, the past couple weeks have been a mad dash to finish all of our pre-departure forms… i.e. insurance forms, passport photos, notarizing passports, and our lovely visa – the ticket into the golden goal of this trip that is Sydney, Australia. It’s all definitely not as easy as petting a kangaroo, I’ll give you that. But that’s what keeps us on our toes! We all got a bit carried away with organizing ourselves and getting our paperwork in, so much so that we were creative in how we organized ourselves. Welcome to the Australia Wall in my room:
Looks a bit much, right? We couldn’t even START on this stuff if this little checklist wasn’t filled with the green check fairies.
So with all of that settled, tonight is our pre-departure meeting with our program director! We’re going to learn our group flight info, what life in Sydney is reeeeeeeeeeeeally like (Does everyone have an awesome accent? Can we bring kangaroos into our apartments for overnight visits?), and everything else we could want to know about our impending experience.
Until then, I leave you all with something to get you as excited for our trip as we are. A trailer video I made for our video blog we’ll make in addition to this one! Get excited, mates.
Talk to you guys soon!
Chris (Lindsay and Brianna, too, in spirit…they’re all at work right now)
