Living in several different countries makes for a rather topsy-turvy life where visas are concerned. This month is a particularly madcap one as two visa requirements for two different countries came up at the same time.
This weekend I fly to islands of Vanuatu (formerly known as the New Hebrides) for a 24 hour stay since the Australian Government needs me out of the country for a few minutes. I could’ve gone anywhere, so long as it was out of Australia, so I went online, found the cheapest ticket going anywhere, and Vanuatu was the place.
I am so excited about visiting this collection of islands, even if it is only for 24 hours. I remember reading about the New Hebrides when I was little, never in my wildest imaginings thinking that one day I would actually see these beautiful places.
I will be staying on Nguna Island, a short boat ride from the main town of Port Vila. I have no idea what I will be doing there, but I’m very excited about my little seaside bungalow, a place that requires the use of lanterns at night because there is no electricity. 🙂 It also includes home cooked meals by the owners, so I’ll get to find out what island food is like. I plan to make the most of my 24 hours there, and, if I can figure out how to use Bear’s camera, I will take heaps of pictures to share with you.
Ten days after I get back I hop on another plane to fly to Canada and then down to the United States to meet the requirements of my American visa.
I’m tired just thinking about it, but so happy to know I’ll get to see dear folks, eat copious amounts of Mexican food, and experience a bit of winter whilst visiting some of my favorite haunts around Washington and British Columbia.
So it’s looking to be a wild ride this month, but it will be a good one. 🙂
How about you, dear one? What is your March looking like?
