Yes, I am still alive! I survived 3 months in Australia already without getting stung, bit or eaten. (Well, if you don't count mosquitos.) I think that's quite an accomplishment! Keep reading if you would like to know what I've been up to for the last 2 months. By the way, you can follow me on instagram here.
20/12: Just a selfie, to praise the fabulous weather in Mackay and my new playsuit and necklace. 22/12: I got myself a cheap car (which I got rid of again two weeks later), it was quite the experience driving on the left side of the road.
22/12: I drove the car from Mackay to Airlie Beach where I stayed in an awesome hostel called Backpackers by the bay. These fellas visited every day. 24/12: Beautiful view, right next to the lagoon in Airlie Beach.

Seriously, how did I not come across this tag earlier? I saw it on Ines' blog and I filled it out immediately (but scheduled it a bit later haha). I tag every Harry Potter fan to do this one too.
This is a hard question, especially because I kind of grew up with the books and I loved each one in a different stage of my life. I think I'll go for the 6th one: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I think it's mainly because I have read this book so much, I even did a huge high school project about it (I compared the English and French versions) and I'm highly aware of every single detail in it. Even though it contains a horrible event - I think we all know what I'm talking about-, there's also a lot of humor in it.
Definitely the first one. I can't even begin to describe how magical it all was (and still is) when I first saw this movie. The letters from Hogwarts, picking out a wand, the first dinner, flying lessons, wingardium leviosa, ... The directors really translated this book perfectly and I think they did a brilliant job casting all of the actors. I will always love everything about it.
Least favorite book and movie?
Nope. Just nope.
Parts that made you cry?
I am one hundred percent serious when I tell you I can't even count them all. Since I don't want to spoil, I'll just say that every death affected me a lot (especially two of the funerals).

As always, time goes so fast! The last two months were mainly spent in Australia so I haven't had that much time to catch up but (spoiler) I did make at least one of my goals. Also, as you might notice, I spent a couple of weeks looking after a 6 and 8 year old. Not that I can't enjoy Barbie otherwise... Again, send some recommendations my way! (Bold = favorite)

Happy New Year!! I hope you had fun. The first Australian MLIP is finally here. I've been loving (almost) every second of being here and especially the weather! Take a look at what I've been up to (more recent pictures will appear soon).
23/11: My first few days were spent in Sydney and ofcourse you have to see the famous landmarks while you're there. I loved seeing the Opera House in real life. - 24/11: There are a lot of art installations in Sydney and Forgotten Songs is one of my favorites so far.
28/11: After Sydney, I went on a ranch course with Outbackpackers. We went on a horse ride and had tea in the middle of the outback. - 29/11: Just a part of the shed, skulls & bones are nothing special over there.
