Travel. The thing I’ve dreamt of since I was a child. The thing I’ve lusted over for as long as I can remember and the thing I never thought I’d get the opportunity to do. As today’s post goes live, I’m 41000 feet above sea level, having just left Hong Kong and making my way down into Auckland. Today is the day I’ve been waiting for me entire life. The moment I’ve been counting down to and the day that has consumed my every waking minute since April 2018.
But that’s enough about me. Today’s post is dedicated to The Ones I’ve Left Behind.
// To My Family \\
Well doesn’t this feel weird. After so many years of me saying I’m going to go, after so many years of me umming & ahhing at the decision, doesn’t it feel weird that I’m actually going. To each and every one of you, just know I’m going to miss you all so much. Thank you for everything you have done for me, for enabling me to make this decision and standing by me through the huge life changes that are about to happen. Just know, it’s only a few months until you all come over to New Zealand and we get to see each other again. Just think of that epic road trip & quality time we’re going to get!

Firstly I feel I need to apologise. I need to apologise for all the awful decision making, all the doubting and all the endless conversations about how I hate my job and how I’m so stuck with what I want to do. I’m sorry & thank you for putting up with me. Thank you for the memories, thank you for the laughs and thank you for the moments that I’ll never forget. There are too many people to mention individually but just know, I appreciate each and every single one of you.

I never once imagined that by attending that first event at Grosvenor Casinos, I would make such an incredible group of friends. I never thought this group of epic people and this amazing blogger network would have had such a huge impact on my life. I’ve met some of the best people I know, I’ve made some of the best friends I’ll have and you guys really have shaped 2018 to be the best year ever. I’m sad that our journey, for now has to come to an end but I can’t wait to keep up with you all on social media, watch you all grow and when I come back, just know I want my place back in the Bournemouth Bloggers Network!
I’m keeping this one short and sweet. Nobody needs me rambling on. After all, this is such an incredible and exciting time. I’m going to miss you all so much, I’m going to miss my life in the UK but I’m very much looking forward to setting up a new life in New Zealand.
I cannot wait to keep you all up to date with my new life, new adventures and new experiences. But for now, I need to get some sleep before touching down in New Zealand. I can’t believe this moment is finally here. My new life begins the moment I step off this plane.
