The List.

Hi you,

Okay so remember my post about the army base thing? That basically happened when we were on a school trip..a lot of crazy shit happened there. For instance, I damaged my vocal cords because of all the screaming but lets not get into that! What I do want to talk about however, is The List.

So I bet you have a bucket list? It may not be a really proper one but you have a vague idea in your head, right? Well, anyhow my friends and I finally started working on ours and after that process started I’ve been finding myself on travel websites and all those blogs that talk about new and amazing experiences because I just want to add it all to the list and hence not miss out on anything at all. 

Our list is insane. It has stuff like robbing a bank, learning to con people, hell..we even added discovering unicorns! But it also has those real things. The one’s a lot of us our dying to accomplish. Stuff like a road trip around Europe (can’t wait for that one!) or something as silly as getting into a bar fight. Ever since that talk about our List started we haven’t been able to stop. And I can’t wait to begin. I shall very soon.

Well, the point of this post was that make a list. Make lists. They keep you creative. They lead you to your goals and they keep you occupied because the first step of accomplishing anything is deciding what you want to accomplish, what your goal really is. 

I’m not asking you to go all YOLO and stuff..I’m just asking you to jot down things that are really important. Times running out so you better get going. 

Oh and remember to add a few lame things on the list..because believe it or not accomplishing one thing somehow gives you hope that you’ll be able to do all the others. The bigger ones. The scarier ones.

I’m dying to know what’s on your list! Please don’t forget to comment.

Cheers,

Potter

PS: The robbing the bank thing and the bar fight thing may suggest we have violent and criminal tendencies. But I promise you my friends are the nicest people ever. We wouldn’t hurt a fly. 

PPS: Okay maybe not that nice also. But we’re good kids.

    Backpacking!

I’m sure most of you sporty and adventurous peeps out there already have this on their To-Do Lists but I just had to blog about this!

Backpacking is a very spontaneous experience where you may not always get to relax, but definitely have a good time (plus it counts as good exercise!). Sometimes you may have to live in cramped conditions but that’s just part of the experience. Getting to experience beyond vehicles and boats can take you, and living out in the wild away from the noisy monotonous city life.

One of the newest things is urban backpacking. I cannot tell which would be a better experience. It really depends what you’re looking for when you want to go backpacking; A lot of us want to get away from the busy city life and enjoy some of ‘natures goodness’, whereas some of us would love to be on a backpacking sort of tour in and around a city…!

But one things for sure: Backpacking, wherever it may be, is essential. Experiencing something new and completely out of your comfort zone can be more fun that you can ever imagine!

So choose a destination, ask your friends or fam, get shopping and get packing!
