2018 – Let’s do this!

Happy New Year!

2018 is here! And I’m ready for it 🙂

I’ve never really been consistent or dedicated when it comes to setting New Year’s resolutions. Then last year I heard a lot of talk about scrapping resolutions and going with goals instead. So I decided to give that a go. But, to be honest that didn’t really work for me either.

A quick weekend trip overseas!

At the end of July last year we decided to get away for a weekend. One of the perks of living in Europe now is that we can easily go overseas for the weekend! I was so excited that in the same time as a flight from Melbourne to Sydney (just over an hour) I could fly from Stockholm to Copenhagen.
