Geelong West, Australia

Only 7 days of work to go, Hallelujah! I'm looking forward to no more 6am starts and 1 hour trips to work.

I haven't figured out the days yet til my departure, I'm taking one milestone at a time.

Starting to feel scared, WTF am I doing leaving my well paid job and heading over to a sub-tropical climate and getting paid in a month less then I get in a week here? Must be loco :)

Houston, United States

So I have packed up my belongings from LSU and moved to Houston only to turn around and move again for a month to France... I have lived out of a suitcase for a little over 5 years now, It is hard to believe... Needless to say I am excited to have all of my personal belongings in one place at one time..

I have not begun to actually pack yet... I have a dilemma it is 107 degrees right now in Houston, in Paris it is 68 degrees, It never gets much colder than that ever in Houston much less in August. I am having to dig out some of the winter clothes and scarves. I also know the rules, must always wear a dark color and comfortable non-ugly shoes are a must...

This is my travel blog from this summers trip to France and hopefully it will be updated once I travel with work I will post on the job updates as well... This will include my experiences, stories, pictures, insight, as well as serious observances. I will be in a wi-fi cafe by the Eiffel Tower updating daily... Feel free to check back as often as you like... Au revior USA!

Last Night in Navarino - Night 0

Bonduel, United States

My last night at home. Bags are packed, sort of. To-do list has been minimized. Tickets, insurance, etc have been purchased. Though I don't leave the country for two weeks, tomorrow is the beginning of my two week domestic trip. I shall not sleep in my own bed until April 2008.

As a send off, I cook Jambalaya for the parents.

What I learned today:

Good byes do not get easier with age nor with practice.

Waiting, waiting, waiting!!!

Sao Paulo, Brazil

Well, my name is Thábata, and I am 27 years old (I've just completed it). I am a graphic designer, and I'm getting my degree in architecture and urbanism by the end of the year now... actually, in some days.
I am doing a very nice project about sustainability... about the Philosophy of Sustainable Design, wich is a theme that I enjoy most of all.

Since it's my last year at the University (at least for now) and since I know I'll be working a lot next year (cause I want to, of course) then I decided that it was a nice time to travel again.

I have to tell that choosing USA to go was not something really planned. I just though of my childish dream of going to New York in Christmas season, and it was like that. And then I started planning (well, in fact I've been planning that since June).

Something really nice have happened though. It starts with a huge and amazing story (that I'll share some other day for sure!) in Firenze, Italy. About someone I met there and that, by the way, is american. Well, as soon as I told him I was coming I got a travel buddy.

Knowing USA with an american! That is going to be an amazing travel that I intend to enjoy to the edge. 35 days, 15 hours and 25 minutes to go.

A fast vacation while waiting...

Itirapina, Brazil

I just though that this was worthy posting...

Last weekend we had a holiday here in Brazil, and it was the holiday when I travel with my dad. Every year his graduation mates make this travel, so they can get together, and so their families.

This year the chosen place was a place near a dam called "Broa". And for sure it was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. All the hotel rooms had a window from where we could see the water, and the sunset. It was amazing.

Lots of sun, lots of nice bugs and small frogs. And lots of amazing foods (specially the chocolate cake, incredible!). But I really enjoyed reading and sleeping more than I'm used to. Graduation projects are very demanding! But the best thing still is having good time with dad and a lot of nice people, who enjoy to spend time with friends... like playing mimics at the evening, everybody together, such a warm feelin'!

Well, at least in the last day I went with my brother, his girlfriend and other friends to rafting. The river wasn't that good, but it was a good laugh after all. Than we catch the road and got back to the "civilization"... and since it was my dad's birthday, we had some fast food to let go that "nature feeling" that was all over us (I'm kidding! I'm kidding!!).

Now it's time to work and wait again... 28 days.

Tatui, Brazil

It's today!!!! Well, at least today I'm going to the airport...
Now I feel very good spending the last time of the year enjoiyng the sun, and the warm weather. After all, tomorrow I'll be in a place with -5˚C!

I've never been in a colder place till now...

Last weekend was amazing! I had a whole day in a house with a swimming pool, and something around 35˚C! I got a nice suntan, that I'll see going away in the USA. It doesn't matter, anyway. And, besides, it was the perfect day to say goodbye to my friends here... I'll miss them, but I'll be very fine travelling!
