new plans

The road trip side of things has changed a little bit since driving in Italy was a scary prospect and so was all the parking we'd have to pay for. So we're flying into Venice now, and then training around Italy. From Venice to Rome, Down to Sorrento, up to Florence and then to Nice. We've got 5 Days in Nice and then we fly to Munich. Going to rent a car there, hopefully a mercedes, and then drive through the Black Forest, staying in Heidelberg and Friberg. Then it's 2 nights in Innsbruck before flying to Paris. I can not wait to see these beautiful cities! We're almost finished booking all the accommodation too, just two hotels left.

Today it is very obvious I've lost a bunch of weight. I really need to buy new jeans but can't find any I like. I got a very nice hair cut today. So much better than the last one.

Egypt tour has been booked and half paid for. Tokyo accomodation has been booked. Just hiroshima to worry about there. Not sure weather to fly or train, whatever is cheapest I guess. Now we're just starting to organise the road trip. We think we've decided our route. (Paris - Brussels- Amsterdam - Black Forrest - Zurich - Innsbruck - Vienna - Venice - Rome and then just taking it as it comes through france) Going to be awesome. Decided to go to Ireland for St Paddy's. Hopefully Rach and Kris will want come too. Savings is all going to plan. We're a little bit ahead actually so that's good. Might mean more hotels... less hostels. *shudder* Or more shopping in Paris. That'd be nice.

It was our 2 year anniversary last Monday. We went out to dinner at a very lovely restaurant. I got a little drunk on champagne... Wish I could remember the name because it was really nice. I got red roses delivered at work and throughly spoiled with presents. I am one lucky girl... to be so spoilted and so happy, in love.

We're having some trouble finding an Egypt tour we like and is possible to take. We've liked a few but there's always a reason we can't do it. They're not offering that tour next year, or it only runs may to oct or something else. I think we've finally settled on one so we'll see what happens. Did a rough budget last night and it seems we should have enough money to do everything we've talked about. Even spending a night at the Ritz in Paris. We're already a little ahead in our saving so that's extremely good. Flights are pretty much paid for now.  I think we'll go looking at luggage this weekend.

It's almost 10 on a friday night. I'm sitting on my balcony, in the dark listening to some tunes.  Couldn't be happier this week is over because it has just been sucktastic!

Went and saw my grandad in hospital the other day for the first time in awhile and that was just depressing. It's so not fair. 

Dan's at a mates which is a good thing because we had a huge fight last night and i am not entirely over it. I'm surprised no one complained because I'm sure all the neighbours heard us screaming at each other. Just another of those times where he tells me everything that's wrong with me. So i just feel like shit today. Not to mention the 2  people I usually talk to about these things are far away and Lee is good but it's not the same.

So after I two months of being sick I finally went to the doctors and it was the perfect example of why I don't like going. He didn't even listen to my chest or anything. So I guess it's just more cough medicine and hoping it goes away.

We got foxtel on the weekend so I am overdosing on reality tv. Watching The Girls Of The Playboy mansion right now and oh my god these girls are annoying and why do the all laugh so crazy?

Life's just kinda cruising along though. Nothing exciting.
