So, I have my redundancy (hooray) and am off on my travels again. This trip will last four months and I aim to take in a little bit of Malaysia (for the beach), New Zealand and Australia (for the beer, BBQs, extreme sports and handsome guys) and China (for the hell of it)!
Having said that, on my trip around South America I managed to more or less ignore my planned itinerary, going in and out of Argentina three times, missing out huge parts of Chile and swinging through Columbia.
Hopefully this travel-blog will keep you up to date with my adventures as and when/where they happen.
I've posted a picture of myself before leaving to remind myself of what life is like with hair straighteners. From here on in, I expect to look more like Monica in that episode of Friends when they go to Hawaii (though sadly the resemblance will stretch to the wild hair only!)
