Each summer I sit down with the kids and put together our Summer Bucket List. We have done this for the past few summers, and it’s a great way for us to find fun things to do. We don’t always cross everything off our bucket lists each summer, but we do endeavor to have as many adventures as we can! We thought about putting an african safari on our bucket list, but we weren’t sure about doing it this summer, may be in the future. A big holiday like this would probably need a while of saving so we can get the best out of it you see. It’s similar to a couple years back when we decided we desperately wanted to trip down the Great Ocean Road! We checked out a hotel warrnambool area as well, ready to go, but we realised we should be patient an wait for the right time to go, when we were certain we could afford everything we wanted to do.
