If there's one thing you're saving your money for, I hope that's to travel and make great memories. I've once read a quote/article online, saying that you might regret spending money on unnecessary stuff, but you will never regret spending it on travelling, going places you have never been to.
This time, Daphne, Ashley, Natalie, Ben and I manage to get our asses of to Queensland, courtesy of AirAsia X and Queensland Tourism for making it happen!
Remember I blogged about my 2015 resolutions and one of them is to sky dive? I can not believe I actually made it. The best part of all, making it happen with a bunch of crazy friends ( and sister ). I wasn't scare at all, just feeling excited all the way, same goes to Daphne. Ashley was a lil nervous and Natalie was actually really scared. She didn't want to do it but we made her go off! We're so proud of her!
( tip for the best sky dive pic, keep a big bright smile lol. )
For those who want to know how sky diving feels like, it's amazing. Trust me. You must go for it at least once in your life time. I'm so gonna do it again, and again, and again.
Besides sky diving, we did a lot of activities that got to do with heights and best part of all, Ben is afraid of heights loll. He didn't make it to sky dive but he did climbed up to the Sky Point and also went on to a hot air balloon. Big claps for him! ( I also realized that most guys are afraid of heights, idk why. )
The whole Gold Coast. So beautiful.
Another best thing about our Queensland trip is THE FOOD!!!! WE are really impressed with the restaurants we went to over the trip.
( random selfie. )
Also, learnt how to cook crocodile & kangaroo meat at Tamborine Cooking School.
( vouge )
Well, we all know that coffee & cafes are famous here in Australia! Queensland has plenty!
Animals you don't get to touch on normal days kinda moments.
Some art stuff...
They said the people you travelling with plays quite a big role. Different partners, different kinda memories. I'm really glad that we made a great travelling team. Tho this is not the first time we four girls travel together, we went Tokyo together 3 years ago. ( first time with ben tho I'm glad he didn't go crazy hanging with 3 girls lol. )
