Where to start? You mean experiences? *Takes deep breath*
* Walking alone on the Vegas Strip at 3am, city with no concept of time
* Skydiving with beach landing in Oz
* Snowboarding and shot-over jet in Queenstown, NZ
* Paragliding in Interlaken, Switzerland
* Hiking all alone with just the mountains and me in Zermatt, Switzerland
* Riding a quad bike all alone out in the middle of nowhere on Ios, Greece - the feeling of freedom and being alone was fantastic!
* Watching the amazing mass and light show of water at Barcelona's famous fountain
* Driving a Tarago along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria OZ
* Snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef and white-water rafting in Cairns in the Sunshine State of Queensland, OZ :)
* Running down Lombard Street (the windiest street) in San Francisco
* Boutique clothes shopping in Paris
* Being a kid again at Disneyland LA
* New York! New York! Stepping foot into Times Square - WOW! Oh and having 2 (tamed) pythons wrapped around my shoulders in Times Square.
* Booking a flight spontaneously, 2 days before leaving the country to fly from Brisbane to London! (call me stupid - but the feeling of freedom was just amazing)
* Having gelati everyday in Italian, Croatian and Slovenian Summers
* Getting lost in Venice, riding the Vaporettos in Venice
* Roam, roam, roaming in Rome
* Seeing the Blue Grottos at Isle of Capri, Italy and Vis, Croatia
* Falling in love over and over again with Paris
* Getting totally wasted in Lisbon and having lovely people from Travellers House (the best hostel ever) who I barely knew look after me... =/ met some great people there!

Me? I love to embrace life and love. Most of the time I'm smiling, laughing and on a natural high! Life has so much to offer. Be happy within yourself. Be true to your feelings and those who are close to you. Escape the stresses of life. Everything in moderation.

Always wanted to travel and am jealous of those that do it at the drop of a hat! Hehe :) I wanna do that too now. Ever since I was little I've just wanted to travel and learn to dance. The 2 most liberating things in my world.

It's so good to be young (at heart), happy and free - mind, body, spirit and soul. The best way to experience life is to be open-minded, creative and versatile. But still keep the traditions going and keep the magic in the air. The only way to feel alive!
