Now for me, this year has certainly started off with a bang! I wanted to share with you all a little sneak peek of the destinations planned this year to get you excited for what will be coming on the blog in the upcoming months. As you all know I work full-time and have a little side job on top of this blog. In total, I work 6 out of 7 days a week, but I still manage to find time to travel whether it be around my hometown or to another country. Now we all know that I would love to quit my job and travel the world, but unfortunately, that takes money and I happen to quite like my job. 🙂
What’s on Tap for this Year so Far?
1. Tasmania – February 2017
Patrick and I will be taking a road trip from Launceston to Hobart, driving down the east coast of Tasmania. Check it out HERE!
It’s one of Tassie’s most photographed natural landscapes, and it’s easy to see why with @tasmandigital’s image of The Neck at Bruny Island. In the distance is South Bruny Island; behind you is North Bruny Island. The Neck is the narrow strip of land that connects the two, and is home to Truganini Lookout – a vantage point at the top of 238 steps that offers 360-degree views across Adventure Bay, Bruny Island and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel: the body of water that separates Bruny Island from the Tassie mainland. The Neck is also an important habitat for Bruny’s native wildlife including Short-tailed shearwaters and Little penguins. Viewing platforms allow you to witness their return to their burrows at dusk. Thanks for tagging us, guys!
2. New Zealand – March 2017
This trip was literally not planned until yesterday! Our boss has told us that we would now be attending our companies Annual Scientific Meeting in New Zealand. We have decided to take a few days before hand to explore a little bit of New Zealand.
3. USA – May 2017
My best friend is getting married!! I will be going back to my hometown in the Maryland and then to Charleston, SC to visit my family and maybe a few other places.
4. Europe – October 2017
This was our original big trip that we have planned for this year (before the above mentioned came along). We will be taking 4 weeks to explore Europe and all it has to offer. As we are still in the planning stage we have not singled out which countries we will be visiting yet, but hopefully soon! 🙂
This year will be one for my record books, I will no doubt be visiting the most countries I ever have before in one year! I am so excited for what 2017 has to bring and the new adventures that Patrick and I will be having. Whoever said you can’t travel a lot and work a full-time job was lying to you. I am here to show you that it is possible to travel and work full-time.
