off to a good start...

so today i met for the first time with my travel buddy, B. we've known each other for about a year and a half now, but have not really hung out much -- i know what you're thinking, recipe for travel disaster, but i think it'll be fine. he's a nice guy and we've agreed that we're both cool with going our separate ways if we want to see different things, and meeting back up for dinner. really, i'm his excuse to take a short trip to australia, and he's my way of not having those funky pictures you try to take of yourself but it ends up just one eyeball & half of the thing you were trying to get in the background. :)

he's only got about 10 days there, so he'll be seeing Sydney & Melbourne with me. in LA, he works for a radio station & they're playing with the idea of making his trip an installment of the radio show, which would be so cool! if it happens, maybe i can put a link to the radio show on here so y'all can listen in...

trip plans are going along well - i have my plane ticket, so i've allowed myself to slow down a bit on the planning until after the show i'm in, Side Work, closes in september. i do need to book my bus tickets (deciding on the tour i want to take) and go ahead & get my visa. yowza! it's really happening...

today i am so grateful & happy for:
~ bartending & catering jobs that allow me some living money before i leave
~ taking steps forward
~ confidence in my traveling methods & savvy
~ little opportunities that lead to great adventures
~ being open to whatever comes my way

xo! n.

  2. Hi Nikki!! I feel like i've learned more about you from reading 2 of your blogs than in the months we spent together prepping for Sidework (sad, but better late than never, right!?) I really wanted to wish you a happy bon voyage, and thought you were leaving the 26th, not the Anyway, hope you are having an amazing trip and will keep in touch by reading on. Cheers Mate!!
