There are a few things I currently have that are of no use. Nectar points, a Torbay library card and my jacket, which although ideal for the British summer is far too thick to wear here. It is strange how quickly essential items become redundant. Perhaps they were not as essential as I thought.
My adventure has now passed the two-week mark. Being away from my country of origin has meant I am away from family and old friends. The wonders of modern communication, which we all take for granted, means that at the opening of one app or another I can speak face to face. I am finding that I can live a much more minimal life than I thought.
There hasn’t been much culture shock. I have begun to drink some coffee, although a Frappuccino is more an ice cream milkshake than a replacement for my beloved tea. Visits to Target and Walmart were interesting. To be honest, the Walmart wasn’t too big so was pretty much the same as ASDA in the UK.
Now it’s time to get ahead with things. July is coming to a close and August is looming. There are a lot of deadlines ahead and I need to crack on.
