It's strange to watch the videos I took (renting an underwater digital camera - smartest idea EVER) and feel like I'm watching someone else. My ecstatic insides are plastered so obviously on the outside (my favourite being when I turn the camera to myself numerous times to show Just How Excited I AM!!!!!) and it gives me this disconcerting - though not negative - feeling of pride in being able to give that excited glee-filled girl this experience she is so obviously enjoying. I can't really explain the distinct split of personalities I felt while watching the excitement on my own face. Again, disconcerting but nothing to write my shrink about. ;)
As you get older (and yes, I know I'm not that old) it gets more difficult to uproot yourself - even for me, ladies and gentlemen - and haul ass across the globe
Watching these videos and not even recognizing myself for all the pure joy in my face, I am so thankful I uprooted my sorry old arse, gave up comfort and stability and gave in to uncertainty and adventure. It was the best decision I could have made.
Enjoy the pictures!! Yes, there are MANY and more of Sydney to come.
