I’m Almost There – 1 Day To Go!


So today is my last day in the UK until the first of September. I can’t believe how quickly everything has come around! It feels like yesterday that I was jumping up and down with my housemate after I received the news that I had been accepted. This trip has been on my mind for months and months, yet I still can’t quite believe that I’m going.

The nerves are definitely beginning to sink in now. I’ve never travelled by myself before, so I’m a bit worried about navigating through airports alone and trying to get to my hotel. Fingers crossed everything goes well! I think I’ll finally be able to relax when everything has gone according to plan and I’ve settled into my apartment.

The last 5 days have been rammed with making preparations for tomorrow. I’ve finalised my travel insurance, made a reservation at Disney’s All Star Movies Resort for tomorrow night, converted my pounds into dollars, got a cash card, printed my documents and have done some shopping, as well as saying goodbye to a few friends.

Despite all those preparations, I’ve still had to spend today getting things ready for tomorrow. Pretty last minute, I know! The main thing that I’ve had to do today is packing. I’ve been gathering things together, ready to pack everything properly into my suitcase. I’m really trying not to overpack as I want to leave plenty of room for souvenirs!

Here’s what’s on my list at the moment. Hopefully I haven’t forgotten anything!
