We've Bought Our Tickets

Jan 19, 2005 by glennji

In my last post, I completely forgot the whole point, which is:

We’ve bought our tickets.

It’s all official now – we’re leaving on the 9th of July. A stop-over in Dubai (of several hours; nothing like sleeping in an airport terminal to readjust the body-clock), then on to Paris for a week. From Paris, we’re off to London, and then whenever we feel like it (probably a few days later) we’ll be on the train to Edinburgh, Scotland.

We’ve got friends in London at the moment (quite a few actually), which makes both celebrating and accommodation that much easier. It’s very exciting! We’ve got a big ol’ calendar on the wall now, and we cross off each day like a Christmas advent calendar.

Tonight we’re looking at hotels in Paris. So many hotels!

We’re leaving this year. Spooky.

We bought an apartment! A beautiful, quirky three-bedroom apartment on the ground-floor of The Malthouse, nestled snugly in the much-coveted locale of Summer Hill, a medium density community that is close to school, transport, markets, parks, and cycleways.

NAS to see you!
May 23, 2022

After too many years, I’m finally building myself a NAS: network-attached storage, a device for backing up files, photos, and all the data that is otherwise in the cloud. Say goodbye, FANGs, I’m going self-hosted.
