Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a year since I promised another post within a week. In my defence, 2018 was crazy! I travelled to Norway for skiing and family. I started my “grown-up” job as a Civil Engineer (Yuhu!) and I graduated from university. I gained 10 kg (Not so much Yuhu). I travelled to Melbourne and Great Ocean Rd, did a road trip to Tropical North Queensland with my little sisters (4 sisters, 1 boyfriend and a Subaru Outback filled with camping equipment driving 3,500 km were quite interesting). I did numerous camping trips around South East Queensland and got surprised every time my pollen allergies were acting up (who would have thought sleeping on grass is bad for pollen?). I twisted my ankle playing soccer. Then I tried to out-run my boyfriend down a mountain and twisted the other ankle. I started Yoga, realized that I hate Yoga, so I quit Yoga. And then I tricked my very drunk boyfriend into signing a contract saying we will get a puppy in 2019 (My lawyer friend says it’s legal and binding).

2019 bucketlist

I have so many amazing memories from 2018, but with 2019 well and truly begun, I have a feeling this year is going to be even better! As I’m no longer studying I might even leave the tent at home and live the luxury life of Airbnb (The $50 a night sort of place, you know).

This year will mainly consist of weekend and day-trips as my better half is still studying and I’m working full time. Luckily, there is so much to see and do around Brisbane that I doubt I will ever get through it all. Which brings me to:

My 2019 bucket list

  • Visit Stradbroke Island
  • 4WD around Bribie Island
  • Hike Mt Maroon and stay at Mt Barney Lodge
  • Buy a paddle board and get really good at it (I will also settle for average)
  • Learn to surf (This one’s been on my list for 4 years now…)
  • Explore Kondalilla National Park (Maybe even stay at Kondalilla Eco Resort?)
  • Sip cocktails with my girlfriends at one of Brisbane’s best rooftop bars
  • Spend a weekend sipping wine in the hot-tub at Girraween Environmental Lodge
  • Do a Yoga retreat in Byron Bay (Just kidding, I hate Yoga. I’ll be sitting on the beach with a bottle of wine)
  • Go for a dip in Tallebudgera Creek
  • Explore Fraser Island (preferable by a sailboat)
  • Swim in Boloumba Creek Falls
  • Hunt for treasures at Eumundi Market
  • Catch the sunrise from Mt Coolum
  • Get a puppy and take it for a walk along Sunshine Beach
  • Dine under the stars with Ularu in the background
  • Have a champagne picnic with my girls (This is like a picnic out of my dreams)
  • Celebrate Christmas in Norway surrounded by family

Any suggestions to what else I could put on my bucket list? After all, there are 52 weekends in a year…
