I think I have more online friends than I do in person friends and that is okay by me (most people say “in real life friends” but my online friends are real life so I try to avoid saying that because it makes it seem like they are less important than they are). Most of them I met on a baby board where we all signed up when we found out we were pregnant.

The board evolved to a Facebook group and from there splintered into a smaller group of us that formed a closer relationship. It’s been over 5 years now and these women are very, very important to me. Most of us are spread around North America, most in the U.S., several in Canada, and then one is in Australia.

Several years ago my Australian friend from the group was my Secret Santa for that year. She sent me a book she had made with photographs of all the places in her city and below each picture she wrote what each place was, its historical significance or why it was important. It was amazing and probably one of my favourite gifts I have received.

Australia is one of those places that seems to be on everyone’s travel bucket list. Be it the weather, the beaches, the coral reef, koalas, or kangaroos, everyone has their reason for going there. This weeks packing list is for those of us that want to go/are going to Australia. Inspired by my friend Teigan.

Is Australia on your travel bucket list?

*Sydney has an active nightlife so if you are heading that way take note that you may want to bring something appropriate to wear and some heels if that is your thing. I am not an active member of going out and partying anymore so this list reflects that.

  1. Hi Sara,
    My graduation gift (from University and NAIT) was a trip to Australia and New Zealand. Loved both of those countries and had an amazing time. One day I hope to go back to revisit some of the sites that I really enjoyed and to see some of the others that I missed the first go around.

    • What an amazing graduation gift! I’m sure amazing is not even an adequate enough word to describe it. I hope you get to go back again and experience the rest some day 🙂
