I have so many things I need to do right now.
So I just got back from my Australian adventures.
It really was one of the best experiences ever.
I managed to knock out many of the things I listed in my “Help Me Think of Cool Things To Do in Sydney and Australia” post which made it so much fun.
So awesome were the Australian adventures, in fact, that I decided to bring a little bit back home with me in the form of a nagging chest cold. (Don’t worry, I’m starting to feel a little better.)
And just as I tease you with that epic photo above, I should warn you.
This isn’t going to be a post about my Australian adventures.
The Australia vacation video filled with those adventures will be up soon loaded with pics and videos.
So stay tuned.
This post, however, is all about how, as I’ve arrived home safe and sound, I’m realizing everything that I’m completely behind on.
When I got to the awesomeness that was the lann dann undahh, I planned on blogging nightly of my Australian adventures while I was there. It’s the easiest way mainly because the details are still fresh in your head, so they come out with ease.
The first hotel and its spotty wifi didn’t want to cooperate though.
No biggy. I’ll just post of all my adventures in the past tense from home.
But then I got sick. I’m just thankful this chest cold waited to land on me until I got to my house and comfy couch instead of landing on me before that looooooong travel day coming back. I’d have been in my own personal hell.
I know exactly how I got sick too.
Without going into too much detail, it has to do with the tiniest penguins you’ve ever seen parading out of the ocean, in groups of around 4 to 8, all waddling across the Australian beach at sunset.
All the while, us humans are sitting in the suddenly bone-chilling cold wind and pouring rain watching this awesome spectacle, slowly freezing to death.
Again though, this post isn’t about my Australian adventures.
Those come later.
So where was I? Ah yes, coughing on my couch.
Can you imagine how horrible this would have been if I was coughing my lungs out trapped on a 13 hour flight on a quiet plane with everyone quietly hating me?
Thankfully, God was merciful on me. And these last two days I’ve spent coughing up a lung have been from the comfort of my couch while binge watching Iron Fist on Netflix.
My Soon to be Expiring Passport
Now as I’m starting to feel a little better, I’m remember that I need to get my passport renewed. Passports expire every 10 years, and mine is up May 31st.
And when is my Thailand trip? Late May-ish right? Let me check…
Jesus, I take off May 8th. That’s exactly 1 month away.
Now I couuuuuld check and see if Thailand is one of the countries that lets you in even if your passport is days away from expiring. But chances are, they are like most countries and don’t let you in if you’re within like 6 months or so of your expiration date.
Personally I don’t like cutting it so close anyway. I picture walking into the Thailand airport and a customs agent taps me on the shoulder with a tiny armed monkey by his side pulling me aside for an extra security check cuz of my passport.
S0 I’m now going to google where to get my passport renewal expedited and how much it’ll cost me.
I’m have a feeling I’m going to be cutting it a little close.
I’m so happy to be able to check Australia off my list of top vacation vacation spots I need to conquer. Have you seen my list? Click that link and check it out.
I’m proud that I’m actually on schedule to knock them all off one by one.
Ahh fun with binge traveling.
It really is the best
