    So every summer for the last few years Aussie and I have done GISHWHES aka the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen!

    It's a week long hunt, where you get given a list of items to do, usually around 250-300 and a team of you try to do as many as possible. There's 15 of you in the team, that you can either create yourself or you can wait til the end of registration and be put on one by gishwhes.

    The types of tasks widely vary from donating blood or hair, to jumping out of a plane or making pasta with jam sauce! Anything goes with gishwhes!

    Underneath it all there's a charity element, it's the biggest fundraiser for the Random Acts charity, that is also created by Misha, and throughout the hunt there's a lot of charity based tasks and it promotes people doing kindness towards others.

    We have 10 so far, so doing well, given that we have til July to get the team together. It's a real mix of people this year, mostly Brits too which is odd for us and the Americans usually have the majority

    We still have a few spaces left on the team, and registration ends in a week, so we'll either get people added or another team merged with us. We'll find out in a couple of weeks! Then the list will drop and we'll scramble to to as many as we can!

    Kinda wishing the team was completed now and it was communicating more, half of the people on it haven't talked to us since they joined!
