Best News Ever

Good old Bananagrams letters

Β This is the best news ever! (Although it will always be close between Newcastle University also accepting my application in August 2007)

I am going to New Zealand to work!!!

At the moment, my plans are to head to a couple of places in China once I leave Zhangzhou, then fly to Singapore to meet my friend Jon and from there, fly out to Auckland. My rough estimate of arriving in New Zealand is 10th-15th September, but I’ll be waiting until payday (15th April) to send my flight money home (it’s easier to save up a few months and do it in one lump sum – it’s still the same charge each time) and then making those all important confirmations!

I love that I now have my next step and I can fully focus on my last few months in China now this is all confirmed!

Next stop: New Zealand!

      Haha, so excited! I am sure I will write lots about Singapore – my friend should hopefully know enough to show me around well!
