Leaving London for Sydney

It's been a hectic week and a bit since I finished my summer adventure driving through Europe.

After I left Hossegor, and suffering one of the worse hangovers I've ever had after an afternoon catch up with Chook and Marty, I headed up towards Saint Malo to catch the Ferry back to Portsmouth and then back to London.

When I pulled up to my first round about after the ferry ride I had to sit there for a few minutes and work out just which way I was supposed to be driving on it.  Was it left? Was it right? It felt like it should be left, but was that because it was the right way or because I was used to going that way after 2 months on the other side of the road.

I was sat there for about 5 seconds, which for the people blaring their horns behind me obviously seemed like a lot longer, before I took the plunge around the left of the roundabout.

After a sunny weekend back at Borough Markets and Clapham Common I went back to work to find out that there were some issues with me changing my Visas over...... and hence the title of this post.

So there's a good chance that I'm going to be leaving wintery London and heading to summery Sydney for the next few months and start work with original Squiz - Mysource Matrix Open Source CMS company.
