101 Things Update

It's been a while since I did a 101 Things update, what with all my traipsing about the globe. But I finally have some updates to share with you, which I think is quite a fitting close to the end of the year.
#13 - make chutney. Done! Tomato, onion and apple. Quite sweet at first, and then BAM! The vinegar punches you in the face. One friend I gifted a jar to had her jar mysteriously evaporate in a very short space of time, so I had to give her another. Success :) I'll post the recipe when I'm having a quiet week.
#20 - learn to make a Pina Colada. Done! I wrote a post about it just before Christmas, so if you scroll back a couple of posts you'll see it.
#54 - visit Africa. Done! Spent about two weeks in Tanzania, seeing the Serengeti, Ngorogoro Crater, the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, the Usambara Mountains, and Zanzibar. I'll post about my adventures throughout the next year.
#55 - visit Mexico. Done! I spent about three weeks in Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. We started in Mexico City and made our way up the top side of the Yucatan Peninsula and back down the other side to Antigua, Guatemala. Loved it. Again, I'll post about my trip througout the the year.
#72 - read Romeo and Juliet. In the process of doing this one. I'm finding that if I read it a scene at a time, the Shakespearean language doesn't get the better of me.
As you read this, I'm off camping (you know, assuming this year didn't end the same way as the last one did), so I'll wish you all a happy New Year and I'll see you early in January :)


  1. I hope your camping trip goes well!

    Congratulations on ticking off a couple more things. I seem to have lost track of mine altogether...

    1. I just got home and am shocked and dismayed what a mess I left my room in during my 90-minute packing flurry. Okay, I lie - I'm not in the slightest bit shocked. This happens to me every year! The camping trip was great, just what I needed. As for the list, well a lot of the ones left are pretty chunky challenges so I'm not entirely sure how this is going to pan out but I'm sure I'll have fun trying!:)


Give me the loves! Erm, I mean, comment here...
