The count down has started
In a week, me and my family will be off to sunny Queensland. It will be nice to have access to an ocean and some sun and warm weather. It will be the perfect change from Alberta and I wish it would be for more than a holiday but that’s another story.
So I just realised that there is only a week left to get ready! Of course I have started to pack way to early and now I have to open everything because I don’t remember what’s in there anymore. I just have to revise it and finish to put the extra stuff in the big hard-covered suitcase that will be checked-in.
I have done my best to pack light this time and I think I have succeeded for once. We decided to buy three carry-on with wheels because last year they lost and damaged one of our suitcase. I was sitting near the window on top of where they put the luggage and at a stop-over, I saw them take my suitcase out of the plane in the wrong airport!!! There was not much I could do except of hoping someone else had the same suitcase. This time,I didn’t feel like losing everything to start the trip so we will have our main stuff in the plane with us.
I am hoping to have my Fitbit before I leave but it probably won’t be here on time…. When I am in the sun I probably won’t care so much for it loll. I cannot wait to soak those vitamin D right on! After the 25 hour trip we will probably have to rest for a day or two considering the climate and the tie change. It’s funny because we lose like 2 days going over the line somewhere around Fiji but we should get it back on our way back home loll
So it’s definitely something very positive in my life right now ,not just the beaches and the sun but to be reunited with my husband’s family. My daughter is going to meet her grand-ma in person for the first time!!! She told her on Skype once “I am not living in the computer you know, I live in a house “, my daughter was laughing but I was thinking “why do we have to be so far from each other?” It would be so simple if it was only a 5 hour flight. Well it’s life…
