Firstly I’d like to start off this post my saying that it is officially my 100th WordPress Blog Post!!!

Woohoo to me πŸ™‚

I have been blogging for 10 months now, and hopefully with years of blogs to come!

This is something I love doing, writing about my life and the things that I am so truely fortunate to be able to experience.

It used to really annoy me that people would say, ‘Oh your so lucky’ (to be going to Canada or travelling etc) becuase for myself, I don’t see it as luck. It was all months and months of hard work, saving like crazy, having a goal and sticking to it.

My now that I am really in a place that only dreams are made of, I do pinch myself everyday at how lucky I am not to only be able to visit incredible places, but now living and working in one of the most beautiful UNESCO world heritage sites in the world.

I am lucky, I am lucky to have the access to great things in life. I am lucky to have wonderful and supportive friends here in Canada and back in Australia. I am lucky to have a healthy and happy and extremely supportive family. I am lucky to be healthy, positive and to have an outstanding job with a fabulous company.

I am fortunate, and everyday I appreciate and acknowledge this.

This is why everyday I try and make the most of my time, especially for the people who aren’t able to. I think that’s part of the reason I love blogging so much, to share my experiences with other people, to follow me on my journeys.

With that said and with summer coming up soon and there is still lots that I would like to achieve on my Canadian bucket list, I have decided to make my 100th blog post about my Canadian Bucket List!
