Well I thought I would get a jump start on setting up this blog so that I can track my travels once again. For those of you that don't know, im moving to Southampton, England in March. I can't give a definate date at the moment because i'm waiting for my UK Ancestry visa and then i can book my flight. Although im looking at around March 21 tentatively.
There are so many details that I have to sort out!! shipping, banking, travel insurance,packing, as well as giving away TONS of stuff, OHIP details, renewals of various cards, saying goodbye and finally getting on the plane! I'm super excited about this as well as totally daunted by the magnitude of it all. Ultimately though, i can't wait to get there and explore. And of course find a job :-( I'm already planning trips to Prague, Italy and Amsterdam. Totally ahead of myself of course. I can't believe how economically easy it is to manouver around Europe. I mean it costs a fortune to even fly from Toronto to Vancouver here.
I think the reality of this all has started to catch up with me as of late. Nothing makes you appreciate your own country more then the prospect of leaving it. Even though the conservatives won :-( Thoughts of not having KD, Aero bars, twinkies, Aveeno, digital cable, and easy to use banking.....arghhh!!
But don't get me wrong, I'm really looking forward to moving to England. The biggest reason of all, to live with Richard! A relationship where you live 5000 kms apart is not really the ideal thing.It will be fun to explore where he lives and meet his friends and family.
Anyways, keep tuned in to hear more about all the trials and tribulations of my international move!
