I paid my mum back the last of the money I borrowed for Perth and now she’s lent me it all back so I can close my UK account and cover my overdraft. So yeah, that’s pretty much done. Just giving my mum $100 a week to pay her back.
Uni is almost paid for and the savings for the trip home are coming along nicely.
I reckon by the end of this year, I can mark this as done. I’ve really taken control and I’m super pleased with myself!
I’ve lived in Oz for nearly a year and a half and I’ve still not ticked this off.
Probably because Brisbane doesn’t have its own beach… maybe later in the year, I’ll head up to the Gold Coast and give it a shot!
We have the dates, we have the itinerary, we have a rough estimate of costs.
Just need to get this semester of uni paid for and we are on to book flights, accommodation for York (I’m on sofas and in spare bedrooms for Edinburgh and Preston!) and trains and buses between locations.
I am so excited.
