We're getting closer and closer to the take off, 60 days away people! That means the countdown is on for real so in order to prepare, I'm starting a list of the top 5 places I can't wait to visit in the land down under, all under 3 hours from Sydney!

Bondi Beachby Swiss Belhotel

Starting with #1, Bondi Beach

Mostly known as one of the top surfing destinations in the World, it's also right near my apartment making it that much easier to spend my post-morning runs soaking up the sun listening to the tranquil sounds of crashing waves (and maybe even learning to hang 10 ). It's also a pretty big tourist destination but according to the travel experts, it's still a must.

#2 Port Stephens

A quick 2 hour drive down the Central Coast leads me into the beautiful Port Stephens. Certainly looking to take a ride on Oakfield Ranch Camels or maybe watch the sunset over Gan Gan Lookout. Either Way, I know this place will keep me busy for a while. Exploring and adventuring through lands like this is something I definitely can't wait to do.

Jenolan Caves Gallery

#3 Jenolan Caves

Better known as one of the best caves spots in Australia, it's underground caves and tunnels are masterfully formed into beautiful works of limestone (or so I've been told). These caves are definitely something I could never find in my little state of Massachusetts.

Birsen Oz

#4 Mount Wilson, Blue Mountains

People say the thing about Mount Wilson and even some other spots of the Blue Mountains is that they hold magical views you can only understand through visiting. The village of Mount Wilson accompanies magnificent views and beautiful landscape that makes me super eager to experience for myself.

Christine Lemieux

#5 Australian Reptile Park

Nothing that sounds more intriguing than the Australian Reptile Park described as a hands-on zoo located in a natural bush setting on the Central Coast, home to exotic reptiles from around the world and a wide variety of Australian native animals. I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty excited to see Koalas and Kangaroos but Tasmanian Devils and deadly spiders too? I'm all for it.

Stay tuned for more travel updates coming soon!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I never considered myself a cat person, but Chess immediately stole my heart.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
