    “My Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb experience was fun, funny & interesting. A must for anyone visiting Sydney”

    On Top Sydney Harbour Bridge

    The Sydney Harbour Bridge, represents more than just a bridge to get from A – B. In my eyes, it is one of Sydney’s most symbolic and iconic landmark, that all of us Aussies should be proud of. When I was given the opportunity to climb the bridge on Australia Day and to take in our gorgeous harbour and surroundings. I could not have thought of anything more ‘Aussie’ to do.

    We did the express climb, which is at fast tracked pace and a slightly shorter route. Our guide was super friendly, funny and knowledgeable which made our experience even better. We learnt about the history behind the bridge, got to see and feel how it was constructed and heard the grand tales that accompanied the Bridge as it was being made . The view to be expected is absolutely breathtaking.

    I normally live by the phrase a picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case, I wasn’t worried about getting the perfect shot, I wanted to take it all in and really appreciate the bridge and all its entirety.

    A big thanks to the team at Sydney Bridge Climb for creating this beautiful memory that I will never forget. If you too want to climb the bridge you can book directly here.

    So, you want to know more about where you came from?

    Well I might have just found the solution you have been searching for! Introducing my AncestryDNA Kit Review.

    Arriving in my mailbox, my AncestryDNA kit came in a small parcel (perfect for that gift to your loved one, friend or even yourself!)

    I must admit I had seen the ads on TV but I was skeptical of how it actually worked, but I thought hey it’s worth a try right.

    Honestly, I am not quite sure what I was hoping for or even expecting. Somewhere deep down I think I was hoping for something a little bit left of centre, being the blonde hair blue/green eyed girl that I am, what if I had something a little bit more than just European?

    The Kit

    The kit itself is pretty straight forward, spit here, seal there, post here, register there. And before I knew it, my kit was off in the mail.

    And then what?

    AncestryDNA Kit Results

    So there you have it, no real surprises!

    According to the results I am 71% Western European, 16% Irish, 9% English & traces of Spanish and Greek/Italian. I must admit I had never even contemplated having bit of Italian in me (although I really do love pasta so maybe that’s a bit of my Italian side coming out haha).

    Having this information has peaked my interest even more. I am now in the process of building a more in depth family tree and wanting further insight into my DNA.

    To say that I like to travel is a little bit of an understatement, combining this with my love of food, well, let’s just say, if it wasn’t for my little fur babies,

    I might never come home

    I am all about making lists, so I thought it might be a good time for me to pen my bucket list (queue Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson)

    To stick to 50 was near impossible, so I have added a few bonus points (just because I can), now, I have already been fortunate enough to do things like Swim with turtles at Heron Island, Go to San Fran and cycle across Golden Gate Bridge, so I have started my list from today, 16th January 2017 – call it my, new years resolution if you like, the year of travel, laughter and food…(my resolution every year I would say!)

    In no order whatsoever, here is my bucket list…
