I’ve been looking forward to this month for a long time. The last few weeks of studying have been intense and I barely haven’t done anything else but writing assignments. However, I’ve now finished the second semester of my master of journalism and communication and have four months of holiday before I’m going back to school for my third and final semester at the end of February next year.
I’m sure that the next four months will pass by quickly. I’ve so many good things in the pipeline for this holiday and as usual, the travels are the highlights. Later this month I’m going to New Zealand on a 10-day road trip with two of my best friends. I’ve always wanted to visit New Zealand and now when I live in Australia it’s much more accessible. However, I will also enjoy life in Sydney and I’m beyond excited that the temperatures are rising, the days get longer and summer is right around the corner.
Below, I’ve listed some of the things I want to do during November. The list is dominated by travels and travel planning but does also cover activities in the Sydney area and indoor time. If you have any additions to the list or any recommendations to what to see and do on New Zealand’s South Island and along Australia’s East Coast, please let me know.
