Well kids it looks like Dio is heading out in a few months. I bought my plane ticket the other day and this is what it looks like.

April 6, 2004 - Departure Day

April 8, 2004 -Arrive in Nadi, Fiji (via Los angeles)

*stay for three weeks

April 28, 2004-Arrive in Brisbane, australia

*stay for approx 9 months

February 1, 2005-arrive in Auckland, New zealand

*stay for 2 months

March 31, 2005-Finish my trip and arrive back to good ol vancouver


I also got my working holiday visa (for oz) online so that's all set up. So in four more months I will be lying on a beach in fiji. Hopefully I'll be able to stick it out a year. Money concerns be and i'm hoping that I'll be able to stay for the full amount of time. Fingers crossed! :D
