9 Things I Do on My Fall Adventures
If you ask me, fall is the season of magic. I’ve loved it the most for as long as I can remember, and all the beauty it brings every year never fails to fascinate me.
The colors, the not-too-cold-but-still-chilly weather, the rain, pumpkin drinks and bakery items in coffee shops, piles of leaves, they all bring me this unique feeling of happiness and excitement.
I go on what I call “fall adventures” whenever fall comes around. It’s basically me dedicating a whole day to doing the most fall things I can think of to experience fall to the fullest.
I went on one of these fall adventures a couple days ago, and I decided to bring you along with me and show you how it looks like from the very beginning:
Thing One: The Outfit
Pick an outfit that gives you as much fall vibes as possible, here’s what I think you should include:
Aaaand we’re ready to go 😊:
Thing Two: The Location
Look for a location that’s full of pretty colors and leaves, lots and lots of leaves!
Being in Victoria, I could not think of a better place than our beautiful campus, which is also close to where I live.
Last year was my first time being on campus during fall, and I was astonished at how colorful and beautiful it was. Even though I knew what to expect this year, the beauty amazed me just the same if not more. I mean, just look at these views, isn’t it AMAZING?
Thing Three: The Walk
Now that we’re here at our beautiful, fally location, let’s walk around for a bit, enjoy the chilly weather, and watch the swinging leaves fall down.
Random thought: Is that why they call fall, fall? Cause the leaves literally “fall” down? Hmm… 🤔
Thing Four: The Collection
Here’s something you need t know about me before we go any farther: I am OBSESSED with autumn leaves!
Every fall, I collect a bunch of leaves, dry them out, and do something with them (more on that in a bit). So let’s do exactly that, collect a bunch of leaves and put the under a book so they will dry nicely and with no wrinkles.
Thing Five: The Kicking
Okay, let’s make one thing very clear here: you cannot call it a fall adventure if you don’t kick some leaves or jump on them and hear that lovely crunchy sound! Make sure you do that! It’s super fun, and the most fall thing you can do.

Thing Six: The Fun!
For me, this is the most fun step of all. Like I said, I’m obsessed with leaves. I become a little kid when I’m around them. Maybe I’ll have a leaf pit someday, but for now, what we’re gonna do here is close enough:
Find a pile of leaves (or make one yourself), and have as much fun with it as you can! You can kick it, jump in it, throw them up or at you friends (“leafball” fight??); really anything that makes it fun for you.
Thing Seven: The Calm
Let’s take some time to sit down for a moment, on a bench or next to a tree, and simply relax. You can listen to music, read a book, or just chill and enjoy the views.
Thing Eight: The Taste of Fall
Now that we’re almost at the end of our adventure, it’s nice to have a refresher. How about something with a taste of fall? Pumpkin spice latte, anyone?
Thing Nine: The Arts and Crafts
Time to get crafty! Remember our beloved leaves we collected earlier? Let’s make a nice, little reminder of our adventure today with them.
You can be as creative as you want with it and make crazy things, or you can just lay them around the house, on a table or on your desk, which is what I usually do.
I thought I’d make a string of leaves with mine this time. It’s quite simple, and it look pretty on a wall.
Thanks for coming along with me on this fall adventure. Fall is coming close to an end, and I hope you go out there and enjoy this magical season it as much as you can while it’s here.
Let me know if there’s something you think I should include on my next fall adventure.
Have a great rest of the fall! 🍂🍁🍂
