We have a page in Swept away by Wanderlust that has the above quote by Eleanor Roosevelt. This Sunday some friends and I well and truly lived by it!

With beautiful weather it was time to kick off summer early in Australia. So a bunch of friends and I,  drove South of Sydney down to the Royal National Park, ending up at Wattamolla Beach – where it beholds an extremely scary high cliff that you can jump off. Wow – time to live by what I tell others to do in our travel journal – “Do one thing every day that scares you!”. As I was about to jump off the 10 m high cliff, I was a little to scared to do it by myself so I jumped together with the much more composed and cool Maria. It was absolutely thrilling. After that first jump my adrenaline was pumping and with the gorgeous emerald water sparkling in the sun I wanted to do it over and over again. Feeling wild and full of life we found the perfect tree to climb to watch the sunset from.  Funnily enough it also offered a view to watch a random guy dressed up in Winnie the Pooh who proposed to his girlfriend.  Then before we knew it, all good things have to come to an end and it was time for sunset drives home in the uber cool green care share and Chrysler Cross fire! A beautiful day, friends, laughter, swimming and good vibes!

So what’s on your scary list, big or small? Write to us, we would love to hear them? We dare you! xx
