2016 has come to an end.
Its the year that gave us quiet a few adventures, some that took us overseas and others that were just down the road!But now I’m looking forward to what the new Year is going to bring and have set some travel goals.
Here they are….
Kangaroo Island, South Australia
The two younger kids and I are going to travel to Adelaide and Kangaroo Island to camp ( that’s if I book it… planning on going in two weeks!) Its going to be a bit challenging because we will fly there and so have to carry what camping gear we will need, within weight restrictions and we will be hiring a car something I have never done! We are looking forward to hopefully swimming with the wild dolphins and sand tobogganing and maybe a trip to Adelaide zoo.
Hopefully we will be traveling together with our extended family, possibly in March, to a destination that hasn’t yet been determined!! Our last extended family trip was on a cruise to Moreton Island, and we all had a great time, so this trip should also be fun.
Weekend away in Sydney.
As part of their Christmas present from me, the older girls got a night away in Sydney and Harbour Bridge climb. When this will happen all depends of work commitments and the girls planned adventures! I really looking forward to this weekend, spending time with the older girls is becoming fleeting.
We have a major travel goal of hiking the Overland trek in Tasmania and if that is going to happen then we had better start training!!! We were going to go on our first Overnight hike in 2016, but the weekends started to fill up and then a couple of days before the planned time, Ivy broke her arm! So this year its going to happen…probably to The basin Campground in the Ku-Ring-Gai chase National park, not too challenging but a start!
Weekend away with my Mother and Sister.
I really enjoyed spending time with my Sis and Mum down in Melbourne this year that I am definitely planning on spending time away with them again this year, i just don’t know when and don’t know where!
Cockatoo Island for New Years Eve
We have camped before on Cockatoo Island in Sydney and if we aren’t skiing (see below) I would love to camp on Cockatoo island for New Years Eve 2017, the view of the fireworks would be amazing and the experience would be unforgettable!
I love my home country of Australia, but with the way the climate is, our winter and therefore our ski season is going to crap. For 2017 the plan is to ski either in Japan, America or back in Canada, obviously at the end of the year or possibly in the first couple of months of 2018, when the Northern hemisphere is in Winter.
Camping trips and the South Coast.
Of course there will be spontaneous camping trips, some maybe even solo and travelling to my favourite place down the South Coast, that’s a given!Now just to work towards these goals!!
Thanks for everyone who supported me in 2016, I hope you stick around in 2017!!!!
What’s your travel goals?
