While most people set themselves new year resolutions focussed on stuff like eating healthy, getting fit etc my goals are more aimed at where I would like to travel!
Here is my travel goals for 2018
Camping and hiking in Mount Kosciozko.
Mount Kosciozko is Australia’s highest peak on the mainland, and has been on my list to hike for a while. It shouldn’t be too much of a challenge being a day hike but it is something that I would love to complete. The plan is that as many of my immediate family members and my sisters family come to hike it in March before it gets to cold and starts to snow.
We were lucky to get allocated some tickets to six events at this years commonwealth games on the Gold Coast in April. A camping spot has been booked and with only some of the finer details to be dealt with we seem to be prepared to see some of the best athletes compete against each other in April!
Camping and Skiing at Perisher.
We have purchased Epic passes for this season at Perisher resort. This means that we can ski all season so we are going to make the most of it, hopefully staying down there for a couple of weeks straight. We will camp again like we did last year it is so much cheaper then staying anywhere else on the mountain.
I am determined that this is the year that we do a least one overnight hike! With the youngest child finally loving to hike, I think we are ready to tackle a short overnight hike to start of with. Maybe in the Royal National Park or somewhere closer to home.
With the younger kids spending half their time with their father and the older girls busy with work and their social lives, I am finding myself taking the opportunity to travel solo, and I kinda like it. I looking at different ways I can set up the van temporally for solo travel and look forward to travelling more this year.
Some time away with my Mother and Sister.
I am very hopeful that I can go away for at least a weekend with my Mother and Sister. It didn’t happen last year ( although we did go to Fiji with all the family) and it would be nice to spend time just with them both.
Long weekend in Melbourne.
I won tickets to 3 local museums in Melbourne from Kid town Melbourne and the younger two kids are hoping to be able to visit the Lego Discovery Centre and Artvo. This gives us an excuse to travel to Melbourne on a 4 day long weekend trip and probably go with my sister, her son and possibly mum.
Skiing in Canada or America.
As part of the Epic pass with Perisher you also get lift passes to some affiliated resorts in Canada and America. The plan is to go either at the end of this year or beginning of 2019 depending on how the season is and when I can take the youngest two overseas to ski. I am excited to be able to ski oversea again!
Camping and weekend adventures.
Of course it go without saying that we will have plenty of camping trips and weekend adventures. .. its our favourite type of travel!
