My partner and I are really starting to focus on when and where we can travel to, and experiencing parts of the world together. We love to adventure. Just about every weekend we have the opportunity to, we go away and stay somewhere on the coast (mainly Yeppoon/Rockhampton), or we travel back to my home town Alpha and enjoy the company of family and the lifestyle of living in Central/West Queensland. However, lately we have been thinking of taking our holidays another step further.
We sat down together two nights ago with my laptop, hot chocolates and a notepad, and starting thinking of destinations we both wanted to visit. Although, because we are both currently in the middle of Traineeships in the mining industry, we have decided to plan our holidays for next year or later on (even though we both don’t know what we are doing work wise for 2018). We started asking each other questions: Do we want to travel parts of Australia first, or do we want to go overseas? And to be honest, the answer ended up to be a ‘why not have both?’ type of response.
Personally, I’ve always wanted to visit Melbourne, and travel the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, whereas Corey is a “I’m happy to go where ever you want to go’ type boyfriend. So we sat down and looked at flight prices, accommodation and transport, to give us an idea on the average cost. Melbourne turned out to be one of our major considerations for 2018. The aesthetics of Melbourne look sensational, and the beaches and communities along the Great Ocean Road look so relaxing and welcoming. Melbourne is definitely on our list!
We also thought about travelling overseas to places such as Vanuatu and New Zealand (I’ve already been to NZ, but I’d definitely go again!). We want to experience all different types of cultures, and places, so really, we are happy to go anywhere. The United States has always, always, always been somewhere I’ve wanted to visit. History was my favourite subject during high school, and I’ve always been fascinated with the American history. I’d love to travel the south, and I dream of living over there for a couple of years (personal bucket list). So yes, America is definitely on the top of my list.
There is so much to see in the world, and planning new adventures with Corey sparked so much positivity. I instantly created new dreams and goals, and I’m so excited to travel to different places, even if it isn’t next year, or the places we have already looked at, because that’s the beauties of being so young.
If you have any suggestions on places that are a must to visit, please drop your experiences in the comments below! I love hearing from you.
Here’s to new adventures!
