I begin my journey today. It'll take me over 24 hours to get to Australia to begin the seadragon expedition. Yep, I'll lose an entire day of my life. I leave on Saturday and arrive there on Monday. My first stop will be Melbourne where I'll spend some time getting over my jet lag and visiting the Melbourne Aquarium.
Bags packed and ready to go
So with my iPod charged, plenty of reading material at hand, and the anticipation of a remarkable journey ahead, I'm off!
