Time Flies…

Standard

When June 22nd of this year hits us… I’ll be doing a fair bit of celebrating. First up, it’ll be my 24th birthday… one step closer to the big 25 – eek! Secondly, I’ll be heading for Glastonbury Festival with my other half… who just so happens to live 500miles away! And also it’ll be exactly 250 days since I arrived home from my year out in Australia… yes, I did the calculations!

So, I figured it would be a good time to recollect all the happenings over the last 8 or so months, and see what the next 8 have to offer for this little Scottish girl as I plan to hit the road all over again.

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…

Fill My Bucket!

Standard

A Bucket List – if you’re not already familiar with – is a list of things you desire to do before you die, before you “kick the bucket” so to speak. It’s an ever popular part of many travel blogs I come across, and it begged the question – why do I not have one?!

So, as of today, I have started my very own ‘Bucket List’. Most of my wishes and desires are the typical ones that I’ve seen on fellow travellers Lists. But there’s always an odd one that comes up from nowhere, something you always had an urge to do and to others it needs an explanation!

Oz Wednesday – Sydney

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!

For the whole month of February I’m covering the city of Sydney… an infamous city that’s even more popular than the real capital of Australia!

So far I’ve covered how to view the city from a great height… Climbing the steps of the Towers of Sydney Harbour Bridge for a much cheaper version of the ever popular Bridge Climb. And last week I shared my visit to Manly, for a much needed escape from the city over the Harbour.

This week why not hang out in the animal kingdom slap bang in the middle of the city?!
