Two Years Ago…

Standard

I can’t quite believe it.

Two years ago to this very day I was climbing upon a plane at around 5pm tonight ready to start my year in Australia.

I had been counting down to this very point for exactly 247 days since I booked the ticket with Air Asia. I couldn’t be more excited! I was nervous, apprehensive, petrified all at once. The counting down seemed to last a lifetime, yet here I was taking those last few steps on the plane that would take me away from home for 366 days.

The Ever Growing Bucket

Standard

I haven’t updated my Bucket List recently, mainly due to forgetfulness and my ultimate laziness in getting my brain going into rustling up more ideas for me to do! (I’ll be honest… I’m just really lazy).

I haven’t been doing nothing though, I’ve been a busy bee in terms of work – yawn – and play – yay! Work is no fun to talk about (hopefully No.10 on my List will come true and I’ll have something exciting to ramble about!). But the play part has been great fun cause I ticked off No.18 on the List… Woop!

More Fun In My Bucket!

Standard

This Bucket List of mine is ever growing and I’ve come to realise it’s probably the most perfect way to push you to do those things you REALLY want to do…

It’s all good to say “I’d love to do this, that and the other”. It’s a whole other matter to have those ideas written on paper, on your laptop, or better still – on your blog for everyone else to see. If you know that list exists somewhere, you’ll want to complete it. If you know others can see what your dreams are, you’ll want to fulfil those dreams and tell your readers how it all happened!

Keep on Filling…

Standard

As I’m on the waiting list for jumping on a plane out of here (which is yet to be booked) and make any sort of plans for where to head on my RTW… I’ve been building up my very own Bucket List. I’m determined to take this list as I get on said plane and tick things off as I travel :).

I introduced the first batch of my Bucket List last week… You can check it out here “Fill My Bucket!”

And as the weeks progress towards actually getting a flight of some sort booked (which I’ll no doubt tell you all about when I do so!) I will update this list… probably to the point where I’ll never know where to begin and panic that I’ll never get it done… which I’m sure isn’t the intention of these lists!

Anyways… here goes the next load…

The Curry That Took Me Round Oz

Standard

I’ve always found the best way to bring family and friends together is through their stomachs…

And you can never fail with a proper home cooked meal. After all, if our stomachs are happy inside, we’re all happy on the outside!

Now, when it comes to travelling and food… it’s a whole other matter. Or at least thats what I discovered!

Oz Wednesday – Melbourne

Standard

Each week I’m holding my new feature – Oz Wednesday (some might notice it’s a take on the title of a particular fruit named phone company and their 241 deal at the cinemas!).

Every month will change to a different city in Australia (some of which I haven’t visited, but I’ll work my way round that!), and for 3 weeks of each month I’ll choose my favourite parts of the city, and try my best to sell it to any backpacker/tourist that happens to pass through!

Eureka SkyDeck is my second option for a must see destination in the beautiful Melbourne.

Standing out from the crowd by miles, this stunning piece of architecture is unmissable… in more ways than one!
