Once a vacation is booked it takes forever for the departure date to arrive. However, the vacation itself goes by in the blink of an eye. I spent 8 months waiting to leave for Australia and now my 17 days in Kangaroo Land are already over. We seemed so busy the entire time I was here that we did not get too many chances to relax. Lucky for me, our busy activities weren't that exhausting. Outside of a few hikes in the beautiful Dandenongs walks through the cities, and driving down the coast, our busy times consisted of meeting people for coffee and going out for dinner.

Finally I am embarking on my trip to Europe. Ever since I finished school I planned on travelling to Europe at the end of university and now I'm there. So what am I planning? On the 18th August I depart Melbourne for Kuala Lumpur, a city that has always intrigued me, possibly since it hosted the 1998 Commonwealth Games and was also featured in the film Entrapment. I'll stay in Kuala Lumpur for two nights although what I'll do there I have yet to finalise. I hear the shopping is a highlight and obviously the Petronas Towers. I predict quite a culture shock as although I've been to China before, this will be the first time I'll be in a foreign third world country alone without being able to speak the language.
