Once again I’m off to London! A few hours ago I climbed aboard my Qatar flight toward London with the primary purpose of attending my friend’s (Taryn’s) wedding. While in the UK I will also be visiting other friends (Dean and Carmen) and having a bit of a holiday alone.
Further more, I’m accompanying Gaby on her flight to the UK as she immigrates. All together it makes for a pretty busy trip, but one that I’ve been looking forward to for the last 6 months.
The last few weeks in the lead up to departure have been rather eventful:
- two weeks ago I went on my first date with the girl of my dreams, Yolandi. We’ve seen each other at least every second day since then, if not more
- one and a half weeks ago our church band recorded a live album
- this last week I’ve had deadlines at work
- and I’ve had to pack and sort out everything surrounding my trip
It has made for a very busy two weeks and I didn’t and still don’t feel quite like I’m heading away on a two and a half week holiday to my favourite place on earth. The reality still hasn’t quite set in.
Today alone made for an eventful departure day. On leaving the house I was reminded by Yolandi that I didn’t have my suit with me – the suit for the wedding the whole trip was based around. I also realised, as we attempted to check in at the airport, that I had forgotten my passport at home and had to send for my brother to fetch it!
It made for a rushed afternoon and goodbye to my mom and gorgeous girlfriend, but I ended up on the plane with the most crucial things with me!
Now we wait to see what the rest of the adventure holds!This entry was posted in Travel, UK 2015
