Usually when I think about holidays, my mind goes straight to sunny, warm beaches with lots of time for relaxing, swimming, riding jet skis and of course tanning, however, this July, for the first time ever, I am off to New Zealand for a winter holiday!!!
At the end of April I went on my annual family trip to Queensland to see my grandparents. They live right on the beach in a tiny town, full of retirees, so I basically had the beach to myself and it was amazing.
Making up for lost time
I had a really good week of training this week so decided to have today off to relax and recover. I do my best not to have days off training as I always feel bad about it (especially seeing as I was too sick to train for the better part of this year so far), however, I think it was definitely needed. Sometimes I have to remind myself that resting is important too as it gives your body time to recover and ensures you don’t burn out.
I haven’t been to the Easter show for over 5 years now so oh my god I was keen to go this year. I went with my sister last Thursday and we honestly had so much fun!
If you go, you have to be prepared to spend a bit of money but it is sooo worth it, especially if you haven’t been for a few years!
As you guys already know, my name is Tara. I’ve lived in Australia my whole life but I travel whenever I get the chance. A number of you have started to join my blogging journey so I thought I would introduce myself a little bit more.
This year, instead of my usual 10 New Years resolutions, I decided to set myself 100 things to do/achieve in 2018 (I know I’m late to the party with this post as it’s already Feb, but it’s better than March, am I right?)
At the beginning of January I set off to Thailand with my boyfriend. We decided to stay in Phuket as it was right in the heart of everything. It was such a great holiday and, although it wasn’t very relaxing because we fit sooo much in, it was definitely refreshing!
So without further ado I thought I would share with you a couple of my highlights from the trip.
