I wanted to make the most of this winter break and see as much as I could, within a student budget. I started the break with an impulsive, short notice booking to Sydney for the end of their Vivid light festival. After this I didn’t do too much long distance travelling. I stayed in Queensland trying to discover new things in the Gold Coast and visiting the surrounding areas again. Coming to the end of the break I was a bit sad I didn’t do more. My girlfriends had a trip planned to Cairns but being a bit pricier than other areas I wasn’t sure if I could do it. It came to the night before their trip and another friend had decided to go as well. After much consideration and checking, I was booking my flight only hours before take off.
