Having spent a crazy couple of days sorting and rationalising my past 6 years worth of ‘stuff’ accumulation into 30kg of luggage and a box or two of stuff to store, I’m pretty well ready to go.
The Gold Coast has been good to me; a degree and several years of work, with stacks of friends made along the way – many of whom I hope I keep in touch with for the rest of my life! Until recently, I felt like a part of the furniture at the School of Environment at Griffith, which was cool, because there’s lots of interesting people and stuff going on all the time. I’ve gone from a 16 year old, not even able to get into a pub until halfway through my second year of Uni, to a 23 year old with a major passion for science and a will to make a difference while I explore the world.
I’ve also got a shiny new Canon 7D, a flight coming up in 8 hours and an itinerary for Ireland, Scotland and then a mad few weeks finding my feet at Imperial College. I can’t guarantee regular blogs, but I can guarantee that in the next month I’ll have some stories to tell, so stay tuned! I’ll leave you for now with a little slideshow of shots from around the Goldy over the past few years…
