All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go. I'm standing here outside your door I hate to wake you up to say goodbye. But the dawn is breaking, it's early morn. The taxi's waiting, he's blowing his horn....
If the pictures or song didn't give you a clue, I'm leaving for one of those I'm so desperate for a holiday holidays. I never get excited about going on holidays until I'm on the plane and I realise it's just too damn late if I forgot to turn the iron off or forgot to pack my shoes (alright, I only forget the shoes when I'm going somewhere where the shopping is great). Besides, once on the plane I usually find other thoughts start taking over. Like the time I spent the entire journey between LA to New York wondering if the guy opposite me had a bomb on his knee.
Before I leave, I just have time to make a quick stopover at Jlo’s blog, Zany Life + Crazy Faith , to join her in celebrating the NOHO holiday blogging fiesta.
Each day of November has been set aside as a special holiday and bloggers from different parts of the world have been writing or posting artwork to celebrate each holiday. I am posting there today.
While I’m away, Lilly's Life will be featuring a segment called Holiday Exposure about some previous holiday adventures I've had. Aussies, as a rule, love to travel from a young age perhaps because we are stuck on this big island far away from anyone else and we are curious to find out what the rest of the world is up to (although we like the fact that the rest of you don't really know what we really get up to.......).
Anyway, I've had a few hilarious travel moments over the years (I knew that would shock and surprise you) and I'm going to share them while I'm away. I hope you will share some of yours too.
A few of the highlights (and you won't see a castle, cathedral or tacky souvenir in sight) will include:
George Clooney Where Are You Godammit - Italian Holiday
My God, there really is a Relic Older than You - Pompeii Holiday
How the Other Half Live - London Holiday
Did you Say you Came from Austria - USA Holiday
Stay away from Candles they can Burn Down Buildings - German Holiday
I thought the Lochness Monster was a Myth - Scottish holiday
I will catch up with you and your blogs when I get back from...........OK, OK Jlo, I can hear you 12,000 miles away ....I’m c-o-m-i-n-g.
You’re going to have to catch me at Jlos to find out where I’m off to (unless you want to guess) because I’m running late..... the cab is waiting.....and...
I’ll send you a post card.....well I would if I knew your address.....maybe I can post while I'm away I'm not sure yet. The good news is that I'm bringing back some ‘shopping’ from my holiday for a competition in December so you can get to enjoy my holiday too.
