This weekend I’ve spent up an hour or so North of Sydney with my family. Christmas 2015 my sister and I gave my mother and father a gift voucher for a zip lining adventure up there. We were all going to go and do it last October but there was some damage to the zipline in a storm so it was delayed until this weekend. My parents have always encouraged my sister and I to be fairly adventurous. When we were little they would take us to amusement parks and they said we could sit and mind the bags or come on the roller coasters with us. So we went on them. As a result I’ve been bungee jumping, sky diving, white water rafting, skiing, scuba diving, jet boating and now zip lining. Most of them with my family.

When we went out for dinner last night my sister and I were talking about, when we hear of other people not getting on with their brothers or sisters, we think about how lucky we are. When my family gets together, including my brother-in-law we all sit around and have a really good laugh. We get on really well and it’s a low pressure easy catch up. Sometimes we get on each other’s nerves like most people but generally speaking I feel really lucky to have them.

The photo above is all of us after doing a 300m and a 1,000m zipline that looped around trees and weaved it’s way through the forest. It may have been raining but it was so much fun.
