Neily, big respect!!get out there and see the world!i am writing this from my office in Sydney...and I went through the whole shall i/shant i thing for a whole YEAR before i left. Even going so far as booking a RTW ticket and cancelling it again! But you know what....it is without doubt the best thing I have ever done in my life so far. And trust me you will feel the same. I had the nice cosy job just out of Uni, lived with my best mate, great boyf, and all that. But there was something missing. And now I can say Im out here achieving my biggest life ambition...and it really was worth all the comments i got from the-not so supportive-people in my life, like why would you choose to leave your job, boyf etc?well the answer is simple. there is more to life than work and being comfortable. Putting yourself out there is the best thing you can do, and IF it all goes tits up at least you can say you had a damn good try!!!

Cheers Anna, you're right, there is more to life than work and being comfortable. I wana see what there is out there in the big wide world!!

hehehe - nothing to be terrified of - there's no point in being afraid of life! I think you could ask almost any TP member here if they were scared when they first put that pack on thier back and took off alone, and I bet they'd say yes! It's a little trite, but ... carpe diem

A nasty rumour which I am sure you will quickly squelch when you arrive on the shores of God's Own
