Finally - we've booked flights!!!!!
At long last (well it certainly feels like that) we've booked flights!
Am so excited, feel like it's really happening now and the countdown really begins! :o
We're leaving on the 18th April and having a few days complete break in Singapore before landing in Adelaide on 24th!
We're staying at one of Judi's rentals for a couple of months until our container arrives and we've found an unfurnished rental etc.. (she has the patience of a saint while I've been trying to sort all of the dates out).
Hoping to meet up with lots of you soon - can't wait til there's a beach meet-up that we can come to as well!
Just off to make a Blue Peter style calendar to cross days off on!
Since seeing you on A place in the Sun - we've been following you - to see when you go. Oh my God, just realised I sound like a stalker! Not at all, just when you can put a face to a name it make sit seem more real.
Hope the coming weeks aren't too hectic in the lead up.
We are so envious - hope to meet you out there someday soon.
You must be so excited, I think when you get you flights booked it starts to feel so real, and it is finally going to happen after all the planning.
Good luck, see you all soon.
Well done guys.
We have also booked our flights, we land in Adelaide on the 3rd of June. We are also staying in one of Judi's houses for 3 months until our stuff arrives. We should get together !
Oh my god !!! i just saw that you are in Bracknell. Is that Bracknell berkshire because thats where we are !!!
Gina and I are extremely jealous and we've been prompted to book our own! Here's to productive flight hunting!
Congratulations guys! What great news for you at last. Will look forward to that beach meet up with our very own PIA celebrities!!!!! LOL
Thanks all - such a great feeling, even beats getting the visa as now it's actually happening!!! :)
Hi Deb, Yes - it's Berks, we should defo meet up! We're in Warfield. :D
Hi Carole, LOL!! I know - it's nice to put a face to a name!
Thanks Jo & Steve!
How did you get on Rich???
Good luck with the rest of the preparations, it will very soon be upon you as it's not long now!
Congratulations on finally getting it underway you deserve it as you've waited a long time now.
Val and I have likened the whole process to a Jig Saw Puzzle it takes a long time to put it together in the UK, you break it apart and very gradually you fit all the parts back together again in Australia but this time you know where the pieces go it's just a matter of waiting for them all to arrive.
Good luck and all the very best,
Martin and Val
Good luck to Rich, dibdobs and anybody else who are finalising their plans may all your plans begin to come together also.
We made a calender to cross off the days too. Jack and Sophie helped decorate it with all the things that we were doing before we left.
