Today has been quite productive, really. I finally put my car up for sale on some different websites (Car Sales, Drive and Car Point); hopefully I'll get it sold before I head off to London. I need to get the inside detailed, which I'll do this week, so it is nice & clean when people come to inspect it. I'll list it on a few more places throughout the week if I don't get any response, but they are the bigger sites in Australia anyway - with the exception of the Trading Post, but it was going to cost nearly $50 to list it on there (the others were $9 - $15 each). If I get desperate I'll add it, but for now, I'll run with what I've done.

I have also found loads of recruitment agencies in London and bookmarked them all so I can get in contact with them, send them my CV, look for work etc when I arrive there, and have updated my resume and formatted it to the UK style (which is very different from the Australian style resume anyway). I'll send it off to Zurich London tomorrow, and then I suppose I'll have to wait until I'm in the UK... I don't know if it's worth sending it off to recruitment agencies before I go, especially as I am travelling for nearly a month before I settle down in London. Or maybe I should send it off with a note saying I will be available to work from the end of October... what do you think? Although I don't really have any contact details for the UK yet, only an email address. I don't know if my UK phone number that I had last time will still work when I go back.

This afternoon I went to the library and borrowed some great books on Cuba; I mentioned on Friday being interested in learning more about the country after reading a zine called Indulgence #9, and I found a great book called Enduring Cuba, which is one traveller's account of her observations etc. I can't put it down. I am trying to read far too many books at once - a dozen guidebooks, books on working overseas and travelling cheaply and exploring new places, and I want to do it all.

I am getting terribly bitten by mosquitos right now, so I'm going to lie in bed and read some more and dream of faraway places, I think. I don't even have Mondayitis tonight. Isn't that a change!

I'm SO glad you got the email response; I deleted the comment because the links didn't show up right so I just started typing it up again - sorry about that! You're welcome dear - hope you have some luck with them xx

That is so what I imagined a Jademobile would look like!

there was a history teacher in my high school (a very strongly opinionated person, who had a thing for socialism and everything "left") who backpacked with her friend throught cuba, using the train that the local people use to get to work and travel around and etc. she said the place is really brilliant.

Ooh...Jade drives a pretty car!! If I didn't already have a car and live in a different country, I and I might just actually take a look at that one for buying, ya?

Per your CV, I would send it out there with a note about working at the end of October. I would also send one out once you get closer and do get your contact information, just to make sure that you are fresh in their minds and fresh in their market. Twill definitely be fun though...*is still psyched for ya*
