I can't believe I'm almost there! Anticipation is kicking in. Moc, girl, you saved my back with that tip about walking around with the pack beforehand. I was in pain after less than 5 minutes, so I threw out more than HALF of what I was going to take!

I found out two days ago that I did in fact need a visa so thank god that you can get an Australian visa via Internet for $15!

What else, what else. Oh the fun I'm going to have...woo hoo!!! Now, how do I keep from going crazy on the 15-hour flight???

Have fun kat. Tell all the hot aussies that i'll be down soon to see them (yeah that means you to cliffo!) As for the long plane trip, well i usually dance up and down the aisles doing the macarena. I also sing "like a virgin" and hope that someone will take me into the washroom and initiate me into the mile high club. have a ball!

Hey Katdawg! Have safe flight and an awesome time in OZ!!!

As long as the flight sounds, they always seem to go by fast! A nice conversation with my aisle neighbors usually do the trick.

Hope you see tons of sites, party hard, have great experiences, and meets lots of cool people! And take a bunch of pictures for posting on the boards B) !

It's your time. The moment is now. Enjoy every second of it!
