See The World
Seek Adventure Travel Happy
Last year on my birthday is when I started the blog about our journey to New Zealand. In that blog I had 5 things that I wanted to accomplish or at least start on during the next year. Those were:
1) Travel to New Zealand with Pat
2) I want to learn a new language
3) I want to continue on our fitness track
4) I want to find a career that I am passionate about
5) I want to find a personal hobby that I enjoy
And I would have to say that although I haven't by any means accomplished all that I had wished for, I'm on my way. It has been a wonderful year, and I can say that because of that, turning a year older isn't that bad. Pat and I did make it to New Zeland, and when I had said I wanted to learn a new language I had Spanish, or Italian in mind. But the english they speak here is like a whole new language. Pat says I'm starting to sound a little funny : ). And because we have a beach to walk down, I can say that I am in better shape than I was when I was turning 25. Although I haven't found a career that I'm passionate about, I do know more about what I want out of my career, and I'm getting good experience that will help me get the job that I want someday. I still haven't found what I would call a hobby that I enjoy, but I have had time to do more reading, more time in the sun, and more time with Pat which all make me very happy. I feel like it would be selfish to wish for more than I already have because I feel so blessed to be with Pat doing what we've always wanted to do. But since it is my birthday, I guess a birthday wish is in order. In the next year I'd like to:
1) Continue traveling the world with Pat
2) Learn a new language
3) Continue on our fitness track
4) Find a career that I'm passionate about
5) find a personal hobby that I enjoy
So, I guess these are more my hopes for life, things that I want to be able to continue doing forever. Luckily I have Pat along for the ride with me, and I know no matter what we're doing, I'll be happy. I also want to take this birthday post to thank all of our family and friends for all of your support and love. Without you, life wouldn't be the same.
Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
