List Item #64: Visit Australia

Some of the items on my list require me to travel to new places, because there are all sorts of things to experience in a new place.  I've had friends in Australia that I met while they were in America.  I'd rather visit a new country with a friend who lives there.  You experience more of the regular life rather than the typical "touristy" things.  (I got both with this trip.)  For about a month over the Summer of 2011 I had the wonderful opportunity to visit my friends Chloe in Melbourne and Sam in Perth.  I got to see both coasts.  I went during their "winter" seasons, so it was a change from the heat during a Florida summer in July.  Although I was there for 3 weeks, I don't think it was a long enough trip because I didn't wnat to leave.  I go to go on a few road trips, went camping, went to the Ningaloo Reef/Exmouth, snorkeled and went fishing, drive south to see the penguins (even helped rescue a hurt one), drive along the Great Ocean Road, see the 12 Apostles in person, meet new friends, try new foods, and so much more!

My Lifetime To-Do List

Disclaimer: I am always thinking of random things that I want to do in my life. The items on this list are things I want to do in life just to experience it, things I want (tangible items), and others are for helping me grow as a person. Some are for motivating me to achieve more and some are for pure enjoyment. The list is always growing and sometimes I'll add things after I have done them. Learn more about our mission and how you can create your own Lifetime To-Do List.
