Time for a catch up

Well, I did say I would try to keep you all updated on all my trips over my gap year but that seemed to fail epically after South Africa! So I'll just do a quick recap and then catch you all up on my time so far at university - I can't believe I've been there for just six weeks now, it feels like so much longer but I have met the most amazing group of people in my flatmates.

Right, after South Africa I went to New Zealand and although it was amazing scenery, brilliant places and it was lovely to see my family, it was most defiantly the loneliest trip I went on. I was in this tiny little town called Picton two days into arriving and I felt the loneliest I have ever been, it was horrific. Luckily the end of the trip from Queenstown onwards it was better as I got to meet some lovely people. 

After two weeks of being at home I then headed off to Thailand with the famalam which was great - boiling hot, crazy colours and very friendly people, but I have discovered Elephant riding is not for me - it is definitely one of the most uncomfortable things I have ever done. 

Then I was literally home for two days before heading off on my last trip to the States. It was absolutely incredible. I started off in New York before heading to Boston, then into Canada - Quebec, Montreal, Toronto, Ohio then finishing in Chicago. The people I met were all really lovely, and I got to know lots of very funny Australians. I think the best moments may have been standing in a glass box over the Chicago skyline, flying in a helicopter over Niagara Falls or getting drenched in grade 5 rapids on the St Lawrence river. It was an epic trip! 

That was basically it for the trips in a very quick run down.

Right, to uni, at the end of September I headed off on the biggest adventure of all time, and probably the one I was the most terrified of, going to uni. I was absolutely petrified about moving to Egham, but it was and still is awesome, all down to the fact I have the most amazing and downright crazy family there! Even though I have only known these nutters for a few weeks, I feel like I have known them forever. I cannot wait to get back there to see them all. 

That's it for now,

I'll try to catch up again soon

Have a great week my loves!

Lots of Love, Kate xxx
