There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind

Have you noticed that I’ve been using the #BrilliantRoadTrip hashtag on Instagram (@cecyliadotcom), Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter a bit lately? Well Christmas came early for me, I’m going on a road trip with Chian and Theodore! Still unsure how, but I was chosen to be 1 of 10 to go on a self-planned road trip anywhere in Down Under, courtesy of Hyundai. And if they fancy my photos, videos and enthusiasm, I could even win a brand new Hyundai! The thought of finally having our own car after 5 years of ‘borrowing’ my parents’ is making my eyes water but I refuse to entertain the thought of the unknown.

I cannot be thankful enough to Hyundai for giving me this much-craved mini-getaway. I’ve never visited Ballarat, Bendigo or Bonnie Doon (I know, shock horror, and you call yourself a culture aficionado Cecylia!), so can’t wait to raid these towns! Hyundai is also treating us to dine at Royal Mail and Yering Station, a paddle boat ride on Lake Eildon (where I used to go to maths camp…), playtime with the birds in Healesville (I know, the vet in me…) and much more. I’m literally bursting out of my seams, super-excited to be going on this once-in-a-lifetime-trip. Of course I’ve gone overboard and created an inspiration board on Pinterest (See below), packed way too many outfits and updated my will. But what is a Brilliant Road Trip without fashion, food and fun?

I’m not sure how great reception is in the middle of nowhere, so if you never hear from me again it may be because a) I lost our map, b) Theodore decided to join the circus, or c) we cannot bear the thought of giving back the Hyundai…

你有没有发现最近我很多次在Instagram (@cecyliadotcom), Pinterest, FacebookTwitter 上谈起“#BrilliantRoadTrip ”?因为我,Chian 和 狗狗Theodore准备去一次澳洲郊游! 我到始还不太清楚 Hyundai为什么选上了我,但我非常感恩。若 Hyundai喜欢我们的照片,录像和激情,我们还有可能赢一辆车!当我想到这5年“借”着我父母的车,若拥有自己的车,我会激动得哭,但我没时间自娱自乐地思想。

我对Hyundai太感谢了。我好久没有度假了。来了澳洲这么多年,我还从来没去过Ballarat, BendigoBonnie Doon!好迫不及待地参观这些著名的城镇。Hyundai还给我们在Royal MailYering Station吃饭的机会,在Eidon湖上划船(这是我中学去夜营的好地点,那么多回忆。。。),于Healesville的鸟玩 (因为我是位兽医),等等。这是一生中只有一次的机会,我非常地兴奋。我在Pinterest上还创作了一块启发板,这真的是一个超棒的旅程!

我不太清楚郊区的电话和网的信息如何,但如果你永远再不见我,有可能:1)我丢失了地图  2)Theodore 决定加入马戏团,或 3)我们永远不想还我们的Hyundai车。。。
