Australia is one of those places which provides travelers unlimited options to complete items on their bucket list. I was able to accomplish ample items on my 2014 bucket list in Australia, while discovering magnificent views that helped me to discover new things about myself. Traveling to one of my dream turquoise destinations while checking off items on my bucket list is a dream come true. I lived the ultimate dream; taking a year off from my job was so rewarding and such a learning experience. If I put my mind to something I can do anything. I learned so much about myself and the world.
Have you ever really, really wanted to experience something? I’ve always craved an exciting, experience-filled life. As a young girl, there were certain milestones that I wanted to reach. I remember just longing to get my period when I was barely a teenager, which I must admit was influenced by my repeated readings of Judy Blume’s Just As Long As We’re Together. There were other things on that list: falling in love, visiting Paris, having my own apartment. In my life so far, I’ve ticked more than a few things off that little-girl-wish-list. And yet, one thing remains: Halloween.
I’ve never been to a Halloween party before. I’ve also never been trick-or-treating. I don’t think I’ve even worn a costume on October 31st. That’s because in Australia, we don’t really celebrate Halloween.
When you really want something, your desires find you and seep into your subconscious.
