2015 Roundup


The madness of the silly season is finally winding down and the reality that 2015 has come to end has hit me hard. It has slapped me across the face and not even apologized. I know you’re going to say “Well… time flies when you’re having fun”. But I think time flies all the time. And I believe it currently flies a Concorde.

Can someone please figure out a way to slow time down?

Here’s some highlights from my 2015:

January: I spent half of January showing family and friends that had come over from the US for our wedding around Melbourne and Victoria. The other half was spent packing up our lives in Fitzroy so we could honeymoon!

February: We went to Africa (Kenya and Uganda) for the first time and fell madly in love with it! But we also went to Switzerland, Lichtenstein and spent Valentine’s Day snowboarding in Austria.

March: We spent March exploring Scandinavia. We city hopped through Norway by boat but decided to rent apartments and try to “live as the locals do” in Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Berlin.

June: Finally toured Alcatraz in San Francisco and fell in love with Portland (mostly Powell’s) and spent the last of the month going back between NYC and Miami saying goodbye to family and friends.



July: Made it back to Australia just in time to be present for my surprise 27th birthday party. (Thank you Husband!)
