Hi all!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year!

Many apologies for the lack of recent posts, but I have just arrived in Australia for my study abroad trip a couple days ago. I promise I will start providing updates on the bucket list activities I’ve been crossing off and on the trip.

Anyone been doing any bucket list worthy activities recently? I’d love to hear about them πŸ™‚

    Enjoy Australia and make sure you make the time to “pop across the ditch” to New Zealand and see the Lord of the Rings land….

    Hi Christine! Gorgeous photos! Can’t wait for updates on your time in Australia.:) I decided to hand out the blessing bags on Boxing Days instead of Christmas Eve (ice storm!) and it went really well.:) You can check out the post when you’re taking a break from studying.

    Wishing you a great time. keep smiling.

  20. Ranting Crow says:

    And of course dumb ass me forgot to wish you a wonderful new year filled with lots of inspiration,laughter and smiles.

    G’Day mate. Have fun down under. BTG

  22. How wonderful for you–make it an adventure that fulfills and expands, as I am sure you will. As for myself, living with heart disease, seeking and loving God and being present in each moment aer bucket worthy enough for now. Blessings on you.

  23. Welcome! I hope you’re having a great time in the sun! Let me know if you get a chance to visit my corner of the country (Tasmania), I have lots of tips!

    I’m presently in talks to syndicate some of my writing. Seems I’ve struck a chord with quite a few folks since my Boot-Strap Expat page has tripled in visitors and views since the New Year.

    If all goes well this will help underwrite the Boot-Strap Expat adventure so I can check more line-items off my Bucket List!

  25. Russell Regulinski says:

    Have fun in Aussie! Make sure to cross of eating grilled kangaroo off your list. Delicious!

  26. Jon Janson says:

    Bucket list: teaching English in China, going to the Philippines in a few weeks… I think we’re living similar lives. Hope your semester goes well!

    • Jon Janson says:

      Also, how did you add your own custom header picture? We have the same theme and I can’t figure that one out

      • Hi! It sort of took some fiddling, lol, but I wound up using an app (InstaFrame, meant for Instagram, it’s free) on my iPhone to combine three photos I liked, then took a screenshot of the finished product, cropped the screenshot in my photos, and emailed the finished cropped product to myself, where I saved the photo as a JPG. I’m sure there are much easier ways to get a customer header, but that’s what I wound up doing haha πŸ™‚

    • Ah, that’s awesome! Congratulations and look forward to keeping updated with your travels πŸ™‚ Thank you!
