September 22nd 2015

Today is my 22nd birthday. Apparently this is my ‘perfect year’ because my 22nd birthday falls on the 22nd of the month. So this year has to be perfect, apparently. 

It’s started off pretty well.  

I spent my birthday on a boat in the middle of the Adriatic Sea, touring between the islands local to Dubrovnik. On the boat we had a free lunch and an open bar, it was bloody marvellous. 

Definitely one of the best ways I’ve spent a birthday (definitely the best way) 

I drank wine today, properly, for the first time. Turns out I don’t like wine but I drank it anyway because the alternative was the captains home made brandy/gin thing that had a grapevine in the bottle. So I stuck to wine, I am old and sophisticated now, after all. 

This is my perfect year, and it’s started off pretty well. I have plans for this year, I have two more months of travelling and then I’m going to do all this stuff. I’m going to run. I’m going to work out. I’m going to eat right. I’m going to write. And I’m going to have a great year, and I know that because it’s started so well. 

Until tomorrow, felis navidad.
