Almost two months ago, I finally gave in to my family’s request and decided that I will be moving to Australia. It’s a surprise both for me and my close friends since they know that I’m quite hesitant about the idea of moving overseas. The main reason that I’m hesitant is because I knew I could earn here what I would potentially earn over there. Aside from that and the idea of leaving my family and friends behind, I knew there were just so many things that I wouldn’t be able to do once I’m there. I couldn’t go “Weekend Warrior Mode” that much.
Once I had my mind set that I’ll be moving, I gave myself a deadline. I told myself that the earliest time I would be moving would be sometime between late August to mid September. With that in mind, I knew I had only less than a year to do the things I wanted to do here in the Philippines. So, in order for me to accomplish these things, I made myself a list. I have this on my phone right now but I felt that I just needed to post it here just in case.
So here goes (in random order):
- Paragliding in South Cotabato
- Road trip to Buda
- Join a triathlon (even just a mini one)
- Join a fun run (I’m not really a fan of these)
- Visit Corregidor
- Experience Batanes
- Enjoy sand boarding in Ilocos
- Do the Plunge in Bohol
- Reach the summit of Mt. Apo
- See the Hot Air Balloon Festival
- Try wake boarding in Camarines Sur
- Snorkel in Apo Island
- Scuba dive in Balicasag, Bohol
Surf in Siargao
- Book a flight to Coron
Be a certified Scuba diver
- Off-road 4×4 driving in Mt. Pinatubo
- White water rafting in CDO or Davao
- Fly a prop plane in Angeles
Canyoning in Alegria
I’m crushing out surfing in Siargao because I did that two weeks ago, as well as the last item since I’m already a certified SDI Open Water Diver. But still it’s a loooong long way to go. And though I’m not really aiming to do all of these, I’m still hoping I can do as much as I can with so little time and just enough budget. I’ll make sure to come back to this post and update as soon as I crush out an item off this list.
Oh man, writing this makes me already miss it here.
