I arrived home from work this evening to find my brand new passport waiting for me. My ticket to adventure. My advance to go, collect £200 card. Freedom.
I can’t wait for its crisp, new pages to be brimming with stamps; bent and broken-spined, like a well-loved book, my head swimming with the memories and the exhilaration of the experience.
Suddenly, it’s all become very real.

Which is your first destination? 🙂
At the moment I am not 100% sure, I don’t leave until November. I am in Borneo from May next year for 2 months volunteering at Sepilok Orangutan conservation centre. I am working my trip around that. Still a bit up in the air at present but it will all come together 🙂
Yey, nice! Sounds great… and especially the volunteering in Borneo would be for sure quite an adventure. Wish you good look, I will follow on you posts! 🙂
