Good luck with the application. Russ and I travelled around Australia too when we were younger (seperately before we met) and just loved it. I do worry that Russ in particular has somewhat of a single mans memories of the country :roll: which might be a bit different now with a wife and 2 kids but I am sure he will be fine!!
I was the same when we sent out sponsorship in. Kept reading about others getting theirs really quick and got paranoid we would not get accepted :(
We submitted it on the 1st Sept and heard back on the 29th so sure you will hear any day now :D
Doesn't the waiting seem to go on forever though :roll:
