At the start of this year, as always, I set myself a set of goals, some of them in review:
- Learn German
- This went really well until about March and then I got busy.
- Summit Mt Kosciusko
- This was all but forgot about, so will be a goal for 2013
- Spend more time on non-computer aided activities
- I have spent more time in the evenings reading real books, and going out with mates on the weekends.
During the past year I haven’t done any hiking, and there have been fewer adventures. Having said that I have still done a fair amount of fun things around Sydney during the year:
January – went to Garie Beach, Symphony in the Domain, and Australia Day Celebrations.
February – went to the T20 Cricket, and spent a few weeks in Auckland.
March – spent a weekend on the Central Coast with friends.
April – spent Good Friday at the rugby league, and did the annual afternoon at the Easter Show.
May – went to Vivid Sydney.
June – watched an orchestra perform at the Sydney Opera House, and went away for a weekend with mates to the Central Coast – again.
July – spent a day at the Biennale of Sydney, went to the winter festival at Bondi, and started my North American adventures – in Toronto and Niagara Falls.
August – continued the North American adventure in New York, Baltimore and Washington, and Montreal.
September – went the the V8 Supercars at Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek.
October – went to Sculpture by the Sea – twice.
November – saw Coldplay perform at the Sydney Football Stadium.
December – watched the start of the Sydney to Hobart, and went to Warragamba Dam.
