I look at the beginning of a new year like a sunrise. The landscape slowly becoming tinged with purple, mauve, pink, then orange. Then everything starts to glow that glorious golden colour. You know, the one that is so hard to describe but so very beautiful to look at. It casts a tint on the world that makes everything look clean and fresh and new. Yesterday is gone. A pleasant memory fading like dusk into darkness.

Planning a trip to Australia can be kind of the same situation. Geez, it's such a BIG country and I want to see SO much, where on earth do I start? How could I afford it? How on earth do I fit it ALL in in just a 2 or 3 week visit. The simple, honest answer is obviously that you can't, but that doesn't mean that you can't have a fantastic, memory-making trip anyway.
Whether it's your goals for the year, or that dream vacation to Australia - focus on the things that make you happy or will improve your quality of life first. Then, after you've accomplished the first step, you can sit back, relax, and truly enjoy the sunset - you'll have earned it!
