The Countdown Continues

01 May

It’s officially 4 months until my move Down Undaa (written as it is intended to be pronounced).

False. I have it on good authority it actually does.

In case I haven’t mentioned this enough, I’m super excited. But I’ve been thinking about what to do when my year is up. I know it’s a bit premature, but it’s my nature. I’m pretty sure I don’t want to come back to the States. I’m pretty sure my purpose in life is to travel the world. So I’ve been searching the interwebs and came across this site. I’ve got a ton of tips; all I need is the green.

Why is this not a real thing?

It’s really too bad independently wealthy heiress is not an actual job position or else I’d apply. Still, if other countries offer the same awesome visa Australia does (where I get to work and vacay during my stay), I might be in like Flynn.

The thought of having no ties to anyone or anything, being responsible for no one but myself and seeing every corner of this globe is seriously romantic and intriguing. And travelling is the only thing I’ve wanted to do with my life. I remember being just a wee lass and wishing we could just drive to the edge of the country and see everything there is to see. Just seeing the word “west” on the freeway would send me into a tizzy and I would beg my mom to keep driving because I wanted to explore. Unfortunately, that never happened and I pretty much looked like a little Royal flower girl when we pulled into our Douglas Road abode.

after every car ride. Minus the cutesy Royal couple.

Of course, this is all really sixteen months away. And I don’t want to have to spend any time thinking about what will happen after my visa expires because I need all my attention to focus on the awesome continent of Australia, filled with hot mens and a truly fantastic friend who has promised all Australian men are Russell Crowe circa L.A. Confidential/Gladiator. 

Sexiest LA cop eva.

Sexiest gladiator who ever....gladiated.

Plus, I found the following on the internet, and we all know the internet doesn’t lie.

Ah…Buddha bless rose colored glasses.

    I would cry if I had to return to this country after 52 beautiful weeks abroad….

      Oh, trust me dahlink, there will be an ocean of tears the day I’m dragged to the airport. :(. Especially if I have to come back to not only this country, but to this state and town.

    I want to travel too. Alas my complete lack of funds means that’s impossible. I need to marry some rich old codger on the brink of death so I can fulfil the fabulous life my imagination has created for me.

    There were 6 kangaroos grazing in the reserve behind my house this morning.

    Also our money isn’t green. Well, some of it is, but that’s because it’s pretty coloured, plastic, monopoly money.

    I did not know about the Hugh Jackman clone factory. I will find it and sample it before you get here. Just so that I can attest to it’s greatness. A tour guide has to experience the product before she can tell everyone how fabulous it is, right?

    Oh and by the way? The hot menz Down Undaa who don’t look Russell Crowe circa LA Confidential and Gladiator, look like Prince Hot Ginge.

      I was telling people about your kangaroos and they were all “WTF, OMG, No way!”. I told them they were like deer over here, just wandering around and grazing.

      One thing I’ve learned about myself in those brief travelling months spent in other countries is I don’t understand conversion rates and I will spend other nation’s money like I’m a rich bitch because it doesn’t seem real to me. But give me good ole US of A money and I’ll keep a death grip on it. You’re gonna have to keep reminding me your money is actually real.

      Another thing I’ve learned about myself is adding the extra ‘u’ makes me feel like a GD genius. I’m gonna add ‘u’s alul ouver tuhe plauce!

      PRINCE HOT GINGE!!!!!!

    And of course by “it’s greatness” I actually mean “its greatness” – sans apostrophe. I get a bit carried away with apostrophes sometimes.
