For those that love dates, I travelled a year to the calendar date from registering with my local agency. It was a Thursday in 2011 and a Saturday this year due to the leap year, but still rather exciting. Needless to say, I will honestly admit I have been like a dog with a bone over the last year! Thank you to everybody for your support and encouragement.
I also just realized updating things that my dossier didn't actually arrive here in my country until April 25. So travel was less than a month later! Wow! There was no holding me back. It'll hit when I get home and have no pay cheque for ten days of personal leave but this journey is everything to me and what else is a line of credit for!!!!
