I do everything at 100mph, it takes a lot to actually stop me in my tracks and go ‘woah this is actually awesome’. Being the adventure/adrenaline traveller I am, believe it or not, I’m not always satisfied with just the ‘3D image’ of scenery. I sometimes need the 4D element to really appreciate it. I need to feel it, be part of it, truly experience it. Fresh water swimming makes a change from the burning salt water of the sea and swimming in waterfalls is definitely a pretty cool experience! Here are some of my favourite waterfalls I’ve swum in!
The adventurer inside of me was SCREAMING out to climb Uluru (aka Ayers Rock) in Australia. What does it look like from the top? I heard there were water holes up there, can they be seen? Could I psychically get up there…sounds like a challenge, look there’s even a rope to help! BUT I didn’t. The responsible side of me took over. Not only is it steep and dangerous (I saw people sliding back down on their bums!), the Aboriginals ask you not to out of respect.
I didn’t really know what to expect when it was decided I’d be going to Slovenia. My mum chose the destination and booked it all, so unlike my other trips, I purposely didn’t over the top research and look at photos, so it’d be a surprise for me when I arrived. Slovenia impressed me. The people were friendly, I liked some of its quirky aspects and it didn’t feel packed full of tourists. Here are some of my favourite things to do in Lake Bled after my 7 day stay!
