The Impossible Summer Bucket List
In the lead-up to every summer for as long as I can remember, I have written a ‘summer bucket list’—a sort of aspirational guide to the season ahead. The items on the list have always varied in intensity, from simple things like fish and chips on the beach with friends, to slightly more complicated targets, […]

As someone who dislikes change, when I find something that works, I stick with it. I think that’s partly why I’m so big on Christmas traditions. To be clear, I’m not talking about throwaway Christmas activities like eating mince pies. I’m talking specific, intricately-planned, and carefully sequenced traditions.

Christmas: You Either Love it or You Hate It
In my experience, Christmas (if you celebrate it) is one of those things that you either love or you hate. Personally, I love it.

Having a Holiday Planned
There is nothing quite like looking forward to a long stretch of time spent relaxing. At the end of this year, I have a trip booked to spend two weeks over in Tasmania. The planning, the saving, and the general admin of booking a trip is an idea that can overwhelm me quite quickly. However, […]

How To Be a Camper
I went on a camping trip last week, and I don’t think I fully appreciated how much work it would be to get ready for the trip. I hadn’t been camping in years and was completely out the habit of preparing for a trip like this. I was feeling exhausted before we even started packing.

I love the ocean. I associate it with having a holiday, having nothing too much planned, and being free.

Use Your Holidays
Although it is tempting to use the few weeks of break as an excuse to lie around the house and do nothing, it certainly is very rewarding when you work towards a goal and accomplish it. For some, it could as exciting as travelling overseas, while for others, it could be as mundane as catching […]
