Australia, City Sightseeing, Diary, Hiking, Road trip / 12.09.2015

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.
Hiking, New Zealand, Paddleboarding / 19.03.2015

(Or that time I choked on duck’s poo)

I’m ashamed to admit that Wanaka wasn’t on our radar. When we started putting together our New Zealand road trip itinerary, our initial plan on the South Island was to go from Queenstown to Franz Josef directly. Then, we stumbled upon this post by Young Adventuress, and it was as if Liz and the universe didn't want us to miss such beautiful sights. “A wise man changes his mind sometimes, a fool never.” Right?
New Zealand / 14.03.2015

(Or that time I crashed a three-wheeled cart)

The stories are true. Queenstown does have a magnetizing buzz. It pulls you, traps you, and doesn't let you go until you feel daring, awake, and alive. Three years ago we were planning on moving to Australia after our honeymoon, and since New Zealand has always seemed so magical and fun, we sneaked it into our travel itinerary. Plans, though, have a tendency to change, and we ended up living in Spain instead. Big big change, I know. Sadly, New Zealand would have to wait.
