Yesterday I arrived in Slovakia (country number 27!) after a 7 hour bus journey from Kraków to Bratislava. Ever the party animal, I spent my Friday evening avoiding the receptionist who was trying to get me to go out for drinks with other guests by doing my laundry in the basement.

I like this hostel the best out of the ones I've stayed in so far. I have a wide open spaced room and there are no bunk beds, so you don't get wobbled around every time the person on top climbs the ladder or turns over. It's en suite for a room a four! I wake up when my room mate flings the curtains back and opens the windows. I lie happily looking at the sunshine and blue sky. I liked Kraków but I'm glad to leave the grey Polish skies behind.

I haven't updated this blog yet as after being so run down from work and running a bi group, I've just needed to do NOTHING. I've barely read. I've barely written in my diary. I've not done much sightseeing either! Just lots and lots of walking and sitting in cafes drinking tea. A week into my holiday I finally feel like I'm starting to feel again. Which makes a nice change from just dreading every single day and feeling miserable all the time. I want to change jobs and leave Nottingham. I'm not happy there. I've just not been sure what to do next and don't want to rush into anything in case I make the wrong choice.

I'm also keenly aware of the fact that if I want a working visa to Canada or New Zealand, I need to do something soon before it's too late. (The cut off for Canada is 30.)

Sometimes it's difficult to work out whether something is just a day dream or whether you will actually really enjoy doing it. This two week trip has been a nice way of exploring whether I want to work abroad or buy a round the world ticket as over the past couple of years I've only been away for 3-5 days at a time.

Unsurprisingly I do. I do enjoy this. I just need to figure out the logistics and the money and DO IT!
