Still to do this summer


Guys and gals, I really don’t want to freak you out…but, did you realise there are only 38 days of summer left?

I know, right! It feels like summer just got here in Australia and now that keen bean called autumn’s already knocking on the door.

Spurred on by a fear of missing out I have compiled a list of the things I want to experience before the end of summer:

  • Kick back and have a relaxed Australia Day
  • Travel to Melbourne to see the Foo Fighters in concert
  • Walk to the Kingston Foreshore for cocktails overlooking the lake
  • Finish eating all the mango cheeks I froze in December when they were plentiful
  • Head to the outdoor cinema by Lake Burley Griffin to see Birdman
  • Drive around town with the windows down on a super hot summer’s day
  • Swim whenever and wherever possible
  • Finally take part in the Canberra Colour Run
  • Paint my nails bright colours just because I can
  • Eat bowls of salad and fruit before they go out of season
  • Make the most of this sandal weather before it is back to black tights
  • Enjoy all this abundant light and photography the crap out of everything
  • Drink all of the iced coffees
  • Hit up the National Multicultural Festival and sip sangria while people-watching
  • Dine alfresco for brunch at Penny University
  • Become a true Canberran by walking up Mount Ainslie to look out over the city
  • Crack open a bottle of bubbles to enjoy on the balcony as a summer storm rolls in

I hope you liked my little list and I would love to know what you are hoping to achieve in these final glorious weeks.

    I love this list there is still lots of things I want to do to mostly food related like the lonsdale street bbq on weekends. I am actually disappointed we havent had a warmer summer this year. Good luck with Mt Ainslie, the start is a killer but worth it 🙂
