This morning my sister Maddie arrived in LA wih her friend. They are on a gap year and will be travelling for 5 months. After LA they are going to Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore and Thailand – they are going to have an amazing time! They are planning to keep everyone back here updated with their blog : http://2backpackers.wordpress.com/. I am starting to wish I’d taken a gap year before starting my degree as instead of travelling around the world to all these exotic places, all I have to look forward to for the next few months are a load of exams!
