I've just spent my first weekend in the UK since I've moved from Munich. I phoned Chris and Martina on Friday night as they were having their engagement party, I wanted to tell them that I'd bought my flight tickets. I was quite sad after cos I heard everyone in the background having a really good time, and it felt weird that I wasn't there with them :-(
I went to Bournemouth with Rob, his sister Sarah and brother Gary and a few others on Saturday night. I had a really nice time as I hadn't seen them for over a year. I must admit it was strange being in a bar in Bournemouth cos I hadn't been into town for ages...I don't really miss it as it's all a bit prententious....plus I even felt a bit old...now thats scary!! Anyway, we had fun and it was great to see them again. Sarah was in Australia for a year last year so she's going to give me some tips this week for my trip.
It still hasn't really sunk in yet that I'm going, I don't think it will hit me until I'm actually on the plane. I still have lots to do and I need to go shopping to get my rucksack etc. I am going to London tomorrow to get my visa for India, it means I have to get the coach at 5am tomorrow as I have to be there before it opens at 8.30....so it's going to be a long day.

Hi Vikki,
Sounds scary and brave.
Yeah, must all feel odd (or pretentious as you say) as you've been doing many other things.

Have a good flight and don't forget to get hammered at the airport.
