I can’t believe another year has come and gone…
This year was definetly the year of travel, as you will see in this recap, almost every month we got to explore somewhere new. I realize that not all years we will be so lucky, so I want to take time to treasure these memories. Without further ado, our year in review…
We flew home to Texas and got to see all of our loved ones.
While I was still in Texas, Travis went diving in Byron Bay and made friends with this guy.
I started working part-time as a substitute teacher. We also visited Noosa for the first time on Valentine’s Day weekend.
We visited nearby Straddie Island for Monique’s 30th, which was also my birthday, and dressed up as Kelly and Zack.
We went on a couple hikes nearby Brisbane.
Trav’s mom and sister came to visit, I met them in Sydney for a few days before taking them to Brisbane.
I took a girls trip to the Granite Belt for a couple days during school holidays.
The rest of the month we laid pretty low and tried to save up money for our big trip the following month. We did do some fun things locally like attend our neighborhood festival and watch the piglet races.
Not long after we got back I tagged along with Travis on a work trip to Singapore.
I also started hosting Travel Tuesday on the blog!
We spent Labor Day being tourists in our own state and found a cute new (to us) beach.
We spent a long weekend in Tasmania, checking out the beaches, the wineries and the adorable towns.
I dressed up as an ice cream cone for my first Australian (Halloween themed) hen’s party.
The day after he left, Thomas and Jenn arrived and we took off to Bali after a quick few days in Brissy.
We met back up with them the following weekend in Sydney. We saw our first symphony at the Opera House.
I got offered a teaching job for next school year (January-December)! I’m very excited to be back in my own classroom.
Whew, what a year! I remember writing last year’s review and thinking there was no way 2015 could be more eventful. Ha! I am pretty sure we blew last year out of the water. I hope you enjoyed following along (and watching Trav’s hair grow as the month’s went by). Cheers to an even better 2016!
