Today I’m one year older. Well, technically just a day older, but you get the gist. I’m one year closer to 30, fact that freaks me out more than I’m willing to share here. So, in the spirit of being as young now as I’ll ever be, and striving to live a life I will remember (thanks Avicii), I created a travel bucket list for this year. If not to have as a constant reminder of the things I want to see, do, and eat, then for the sake of imagining them. This list in particular may be a bit ambitious, but I’m looking forward to a great year. There’s no harm if I can’t cross every single item in here, I just gotta try.
Road trip, USA / 17.05.2015

Austin is the land of meat. BBQ is practically its middle name. Also, its food trucks are as famous as acai bowls in SoCal. “The best in the country,” some say. So, when we set out on our 24 hour drive from Orange County to the capital of Texas, we were a little concerned that we wouldn’t find a lot of vegetarian options, and that we would have to miss out on all the food truck fun.  Luckily, we were wrong.

(Or that time we walked in Frodo’s hairy feet)

Frodo is reading. He sits on the grass under a tall tree’s shade on a peaceful meadow, and a deep voice sings in the distance. He knows who the voice belongs to and with a mischievous grin, springs to his hairy feet. He runs down the hills, the singing voice calling him, while birds chirp and butterflies follow his path. He comes to the edge of the hill and stops Gandalf’s carriage. The wizard welcomes him in his arms. Together, pulled by an elegant horse, they enter The Shire

(Or jumping from a 47m tower and peeking into the Devil’s Bath)

Taupo Bungy

The road is deserted. You’ve been on the move for more than 5 hours. You’re hungry, and your legs are starting to complain. Suddenly, you see the outline of a tower over the river,  just like an oasis. You feel the pull as it draws you near. Then, you see the sign: Taupo Bungy- 47m high, and no turning back.
