Load up the truck and lets hit the road! A weekend spent au naturale with the bare minimum (and whatever extras I can fit in the boot!) Luckily I'm not high maintenance so I'm okay with camping and being in the woods but I actually don't have much experience with it; growing up a true west coast Canadian though, I'm all in for roughing it for a few days! The weekend should be adventure filled with fishing, swimming, campfires, and hot dogs! Since I'm a rookie, I thought I would break it down before I pack so here you go...the essentials of camping:
Even though I've started working…lately I've been on the evening shifts so I still have to occupy myself all day long! It's hard to do the same things everyday and I find myself easily getting into a funk. Everyday I try to get outside and get active so I feel like I am doing something. Even if it the littlest thing, it makes your day more fulfilling. Things that help me make each day a happy one are usually just the small things that everyone should appreciate a little bit more.
I know next to nothing about gardening. To be honest, digging in the dirt with worms and bugs is not my cup of tea but once we got started, it went a lot better than anticipated!
My boyfriend and I always buy herbs from the grocery store for our meals; they sell for about $3 per bunch. We were so sick of buying them and having them go bad 2 days later so we thought about starting our own garden to save us the hassle. Like I said, gardening is definitely not my specialty but surprisingly, it was so therapeutic and somewhat rewarding!
Been a little M.I.A the last couple weeks but its been pretty hectic! All good things though. At last, started my job at the surf house. Ugh I almost forgot what hospitality was like. Hopefully I get the hang of it pretty soon (I hate being a perfectionist…so frustrating when learning new things!) but at least it is a new experience, I can meet some new people and add another skill onto the resume!
Lately there has been major inspiration around me so there will be some fresh new things coming your way! xx
Halloween is a huge deal at home. Everyone loves to get dressed up and go out. I prefer to stay in, watch scary movies, and hand out candy but I definitely have had my fill of crazy halloween nights out; everything from pub crawls to hotel events in Serbia. Celebrate how you want, either or is alway a good time. Now that I"m in Aus….people don't really celebrate the honorary holiday. My boyfriend actually asked me "what day is Halloween on?" ….WHAT!?
