Less than 48 hours!

Hi everyone,

I'm flying out in less than 48 hours. It is unlikely that I will be making many updates during the three months I am in Aitutaki (Cook Islands). I have set up a new blog (more aimed at giving information to other med students keen to have their Elective there), which you are welcome to pop by and say hi, and see what I am up to.

Elective Blog: The Asian on Aitutaki

I can't possibly pack my cardmaking things over there (since it's going to be 50kg easy on its own!), so no cards from me for a while. But I can certainly share photos of coconuts instead ;)

Last day of med school tomorrow (well, sort of since Elective does not quite count).

One last assessment tomorrow (sort of).

And when I'm back, I'll be starting work as a doctor within 2 weeks! Eeeek!

Take care everyone. I'll be back ;)

Quick post

I almost forgot to post this card. I've got one week left before flying out to Aitutaki and figured I'd better post this before it was too late. This is quite possibly the last card you'll see from be before I return in November, seeing as next week will be hectic. I find out where I work next year on Monday, have an essay due in Wednesday, oral assessment Friday, somewhere in between pack my bag and fly out on Saturday morning!

I have made a new blog just for my Elective in Aitutaki (Cook Islands) so if anyone is keen to see what I'm up to, feel free to pop by and say hi. I have to say internet there is somewhat limited but present. It's a blog mainly for other medical students who might be keen for some info seeing as there isn't much out there (other than honeymoon & holiday planning stuff).

Anyway, quick card from me. Another grad card for end of the year. Impression plated the mat, but not sure if it shows well with the auto-adjustment by the new camera.

This is from my new camera by the way. Can't say I'm overly excited about the quality but it's still better than the old one. It will do me for the trip, but next year, I'm investing in a proper dSLR!!!

This is likely to be my last post before my trip so I wish everyone well whilst I'm in the beautiful Cook Islands / having the time of my life. Take care everyone. Will be in touch via other blog. Ka kite.
