Tales of Oz After years of thinking about going traveling Ive finally got done something about it and packed my bags!!!

Im Off

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 28 August 2007 | Views [728] | Comments [12]


After many years of wanting to go travelling but never had to courage to go. I’ve finally decided to hand my notice in and book myself a ticket to Australia.

I finish work on the 14th September and flying from Gatwick on Wednesday 26th September. I stop off in Dubai for a few hours for a quick break, before touching down in Sydney!

If everything works out, this should be my new home for a few months and hopefully spend Christmas and New Years there. The New Years Eve party is supposed to be amazing with massive beach parties on the harbour. But first of all my first priority will be getting a job. I dont really care what work I do out there as long as I have a few dollars rolling in. As the Great Rapper 50Cent once said "Get Rich Or Die Tryin".


Not Much I can say now until I leave, But I hope you all have a little read while I'm away on my travels.
