In less than 24 hours, I will be part way through my 30 hour journey to Australia. You would think therefore that I would have my suitcase mostly packed and be all ready to go. However, you underestimate just how much procrastination I am capable of. My suitcase is not mostly packed or even partially packed, it is still sitting in the closet full of crap I couldn’t find anywhere else to put. I do have my tickets printed out and folded carefully in my passport folder so you know I’m not totally disorganised.
I think my procrastination stems from the fact that whilst I’m looking forward to seeing my friends and family, I am not even remotely looking forward to the 30 hours it will take me to travel from Hamburg and Sydney and I’m even less thrilled about the 5 hours layover at Heathrow I have to endure. I’m also slightly worried about what my emotional reaction is going to be being back in the city where my entire life fell apart.
So my procrastination continues, but I will be forced to do something about it all when I get home from work. I wonder just how quickly one can pack a suitcase for a 2 week holiday to Australia?
