It's been almost 10 days since deciding to apply for my Working Holiday Visa. I never would have thought this process would be as emotionally draining as it is.
For a long time, my family has been pushing for me to leave South Africa and travel the world. This actually meant - go to London and live in the the freezing cold and pretend to love it.
The decision to move to Australia has not been taken well this side, and has probably been the most difficult thing for me to swollow. Everything from lectures on life to outright sulking. It always happens that when you need the support the most, your closest friends and family withdraw into little caves or hide behind the piano in the bathroom.
I am extremely blessed to have the support of my family in Australia. I can only wish that by the time I am ready to leave South Africa the rest of the family will be as excited and happy for me as I am.
Everything is in place (BIG thanks to Selwyn) and the final step in the process is my medical and handing in the application. Today is the day.....dun dun dun.....
I will keep everyone posted on my progress....See you soon
