Whilst our trip is coming to a close with only 5 days remaining, New Years Eve proposes opportunities for resolutions, new beginnings, new relationships, new goals and new adventures. I love new adventures and the opportune for memorable, cringing, head in the hands or head back laughing memories. New Years Eve in California is all about bright themed sunglasses, sparklers, poppers, fireworks, music, dancing and that 12 o’clock kiss. For some a New Years kiss is just for a happy snap or bragging rights but for others it says ‘i loved last year, take me with you this year’. Unfortunately being 7,969 miles away from my boyfriend I missed that moment this year. Never the less, and despite the different time zones, we still made contact and have assured that our adventures, travels and mischievous acts will be better than ever in 2015.
Fireworks and rich sunsets are two of my favourite things and New Years Eve back home in Australia provides and excels in both of these. On the hot summer night; the warm sand, crashing waves and deep water ripples are light up with the colours and flames of a New Year. Toasting to the moon, all drinks are raised proudly to year ahead. This is my favourite time of the year.
