Still here in Australia! Possibly not the greatest start to my once-in-a-lifetime trip however I just couldn't manage getting on that plane today. I dare say it might have had a little (ok, a lot) to do with my blood alcohol levels this morning! Also a lot to do with being not ready to say my final good byes to David...I suppose being locked out of the house yesterday might have thrown my preparation too!

Anyway I will definitely be on that plane, London-bound tomorrow I promise!



Surprise!! ... Surprise!! that you weren't on that plane today Danielle. You definitely have my support and encouragement to chase your dreams ... You can do it and I know the answer is out there for you to find .... All my love, support and best wishes go with you. Stay safe, be happy and fulfill your dreams .... I love you with all my heart!! Love, hugs & kisses Mum xxx

I tried my best to keep you in Sydney with me for as long as possible (getting locked out of our apartment was all a ploy!!!). I am going to miss you dearly Danielle. I am so proud of you but my loss is their gain (for the next few months anyway). Stay safe and I cant wait to read all about your amazing journey via Zest & Bare. Love David xx

Hey Danismell - we miss you already! I was telling Madison that you were on a plane yesterday and she said, can we go on a plane too!! Very proud of you and enjoy your trip. Sneaky David locking you out, giggle. Love you heaps and look forward to reading your adventures. Love Em, Brad, Madison and Jack. XXX (Jack has 2 teeth now)

You are the one and only friend in my life (husband excluded) who continues to inspire me to be a better person and to get out there and really live my life. Thank you.
I wish you all the best on this life journey Danielle, and really look forward to reading about your adventures.
Love you lots, YFF xx Amy B
