Hi, Kate here! As most of you will already know, on 1/11/06 I will begin my travels around the world starting in Beijing. I can't tell you how great it feels to have finished my studies and to finally be ditching my recruitment shoes (and burying them deep in the ground!). The last few years have been a hard slog so I feel well over due for a long holiday and have promised myself that I wont be rushing my travels. I'm guessing that I'll be away for about 2 years as I want to spend up to 12 months working and travelling around Oz but who knows, maybe I'll get home sick (!) or maybe I just wont come back.... Either way, I hope you will all follow my trip and maybe even meet up with me at some point along the way. In the mean time, I look forward to seeing you all for a final night of fun and games on 28th Oct before I hit the hippy high road!
