Hello I am back.
I really did think I was going to say goodbye to rosedl for quite some time, BUT I couldn't do it. I've missed blogging and I want to get started on the new direction rosedl will be going in.
So I said goodbye only a week or so ago but I am back and this is the start of the new travelling side of this blog because... I BOOKED MY FLIGHT!
I am off, 19th of November I will be flying across to the other side of the world.
I am insanely excited and I can't wait for it to come around the thought of being reunited with Ed and starting a new life in a whole new country is scary but amazing. Now more on the flight,
At the moment STA travel are having an ahmazing deal on flights to Auckland. I've been searching a long time for flights and have seen some 'cheap' flights floating around. But that is no where near as cheap as STA, before I thought I was looking at paying around £800 for a one way flight and was happy with that but today I went and paid £569 on a one way flight to New Zealand. I don't know much about airfares and shit but I think thats pretty fucking cheap! And I am very happy
I am flying with Air New Zealand which is a well known and pretty good airline which makes the price of the ticket even better as on their website they are advertising flights for £900+ so I got a good deal. I am doing everything else through STA travel too I think, Visa and insurance etc as I just feel a lot more secure doing it that way and they are really really helpful. If you are booking through STA I would book as soon as possible as I saw these deals about a week ago and they are already saying '1 seat left' etc so get in there quick!
Now its up to me to save as much money as possible. Unfortunately as most of you know I recently got let go off my job which is really horrible BUT I am staying positive and I know I will do it. I am doing everything I can to find a new job and I work mornings at a pub so I've just go to be very sensible and not spend money on stuff I don't need, I am actually getting my 21st birthday presents for my 20th so I can go haha.
This blog is now a travel blog! I will be updating you on my 3 months of preparation and getting everything sorted, As I think its nice to read things like that. When I started to think about travelling I didn't really know what I was doing but reading other peoples stories really did help and can make you feel at ease sometimes.
If ANY of you are thinking of travelling, even if its not Australia or NZ then please do check out Emmas blog (I have said this on twitter too) as its been a great help to me.
I've had quite a lot of questions (mainly on tumblr) on what I am doing when I'm there etc and tbh I can't really go into much detail as so far I don't really know. I will be living with Ed at his family home for the first stages and I am so incredibly grateful that I have that opportunity, When I arrive I will start looking for a job and hopefully from there I will start to earn my own money and maybe rent a room somewhere. I want to be independent as much as possible.
If anyone has travelled to New Zealand even if it was just a holiday I'd love to read some blog posts about it, I am staying mainly in Auckland as that is where Ed lives but will be travelling around both North and South island in my 2 years there so would love some suggestions. As well as Fiji and Australia! I am excited to say the least.
I hope some of you don't mind that this blog has turned into a different kind of blog but to be honest, I wasn't much of a 'fashion' blogger anyway eh
