Time has gone so fast that I can't quite believe that tomorrow I leave for Australia!!! Yes you read right... TOMORROW!!!
It's hard to believe that I will be departing from the freezing UK (-7 in the middle of the day- ridiculous!!) to a warm 27 degree average! To highlight the contrast here are some beautiful pictures of the recent weeks UK frost, my photos in the coming weeks will be the exact opposite I expect, though equally as beautiful!
(Unfortunately these photos aren't mine as I have been giving the camera a rest before the coming onslaught, but they come courtesy of my friend John Walker and the wonderful UK weather websites http://www.farming-forum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=89955, http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/gallery/2010/dec/06/snow-ice-uk-weather#/?picture=369429943&index=4)
And if it can prove anymore how unusually cold and snowy Britain is at the moment take a look at how much snow there was down south on Bournemouth Beach! (Photo by Richard Crease)
It is stunningly beautiful, but at the same time I can't wait for summer and I'm glad I don't have to wait long lol, just over 48 hours :)
Watch this space for photos and brief travel updates, I promise I will try and blog regularly from OZ and NZ!
That's it for now, just off to practice lifting nearly 23KG on my back lol!
