A Travellerspoint blog

Let's just pause for a second or longer

I'll be on a plane home in 5 weeks. It's scary and exciting and thrilling and nerve-racking and sad all at once.

As much as I love my city, Melbourne, I miss my family and friends at home. That's heaps by the way!

Today we did a wine tour in the gorgeous Yarra Valley. My new life ambition is to own a ranch in the Valley with horses and sheep :) It is so beautiful - pictures to come soon!! It was such a great day. We got picked up in Melbourne at 9:45 and drove about 40 minutes to our first winery where I had a glass of sparkling red wine at Chandon vineyards owned by Louis Vuitton.

Since I've last posted I've done a day trip on the Great Ocean Road. It was the most beautiful drive. Just kilometres of coastline!! I've been working hard a french final project. We are performing a little skit we came up with in front of the class on Wednesday, so we've been meeting a lot. I've been working at least once a week. I've been to a rugby game and two more footy games! I plan on seeing at least one more game of my Bombers (Essendon). I have three papers due in two weeks, so more real school work. Again, who knew?

The next week proves to be pretty excting...
Monday: Socceroos game! -That would be Australia vs. New Zealand and their last game before the WORLD CUP! yeah pretty excited about that one. followed by an 80s party. Mmmm yes, I can't wait!!
Tuesday: Rather low key, real work = yuck. I'll probably watch the survivor season finale with everyone because for some reason the love that show.
Wednesday: Dinner and last night with everyone here because after this night they all start leaving, sadly.
Thursday: Depart for Whitsunday islands go on a sailing tour and scuba dive the reef!!!! Return Tuesday the 1st of June to write 2-3 papers (depending what I get done before thursday!) before the 8th of June. Yup one week, three papers, I can't wait.

Meanwhile, it's getting pretty chilly here and in my belief that Australia was supposed to be warm I neglected to pack warm clothes, so I've invested in a hat and jacket - well worth it I might add.

Talk sooner than later.
