Sammi’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 13 Jan 2007

Location: UK has been a while and i probably wrote the same thing in my last diary entry. Every body has been hassling me to update my photos and so here is what i've been up to!
I know that most of you remember that Marc came from Canada over to London with me so here is the brief rundown of the last year and a half......Are you ready!?
After leaving Sunshine in Banff, we went to Peterborugh. Ontario and as you know, stayed with his parents for 4 weeks and then we drove to Chicargo to meet the rest of his family for the 4th of July celebrations. After a quick stay we were off to New York to do the touristy stuff and then to the UK.
It took a few weeks to get use to all the changes and settling in was harder than we thought! What do you mean 'No more holidays!' The last 12mths felt like one big holiday and now we have to work!!
I'd forgoten the meaning of the word!
But anyway, we both got jobs and moved into the house that you saw in the photos. So that brings you into Jan'06.....and since then....
We moved house 6mths later into a really cute little appartment. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an openspace living and kitchen area. Sarah, a girlfriend in the UK,also an Aussie, moved in with us and Marc started playing Hockey (Ice Hockey) for a team over here in London. Marc worked in IT and i nannied for the past year with a lovery family with a baby boy!
So.....the year went fast and we did a few trips throughout the year. Whales, York, Bath, Oxford, Wostershire, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, France and Ireland.
All were great trips, some short and others long.
It passed fairly quickly but apparently thats wat happens when your having fun!
Marc spent the year in London with me and has now unfortunatly gone back to Canada to study - He always wanted to go to uni in Victoria. BC. and so......we are having a long distance relationship!
Its alittle hard at times but overall - It is working! So were happy!
After Marc left i started a new job, now doing maternity placements and have done a few more trips... Amsterdam, Southhampton, Bali and Australia for xmas and the new year! Happy New Year for '07 Everybody!!!
I will keep in touch and fill you in soon on the plans but so far.... Im off to Canada in March and home in November for a few weddings.... See you soon and Happy and safe travels! Sammi xx
