Wow – lots has happened since my last post! Here it is in a nutshell.
After Melbourne, I bee-lined it to Sydney and headed to Bondi Beach. Bondi is sooooo cool! Right on the ocean with magnificent footpaths around the cliffs, hip shops and cafes and the BEST weather. Much warmer, sunny and less windy than Melb. There I hooked up with an old friend, Bella Donna. We met while working together at the Tree of Life in Arizona a few years ago. It was so fun to catch up!
Of course, I did the requisite sight-seeing – Opera House, Darling Harbour, the Rocks and I gotta say, for a big city, I really liked Sydney. The weather is great, lots to do, it’s clean and easy to navigate. I could totally see myself living here.
Few days later, I had a great surprise – I had dinner with an old internet friend, Christy who I met through RTP-blog.com. Despite being a bit under the weather, Christy cabbed it to Bondi to meet up on my last day in Sydney before I headed up the East Coast. Christy, Bella and I met for dinner and had soooo much fun catching up. She is so funny and sweet!
After getting my fill of Sydney, I drove to Byron Bay. This was a long haul of a drive, but I was tired of living on the road and wanted to settle in and meet up with some friends, so I just kept driving and driving and driving. Phew – made it! Stayed for one day, unpacked and then yep, back on the road for a quick swing into Brissie to attend the Aussie Shredder Summit! More fun with old and new friends – Adam Waters, David Waters, AussieCleo, Jules, Mummie and Renae – all acquaintances made on the web. Ain’t the internet grand! I was having too much fun to take pictures, but here’s a couple from the boat cruise dance floor. (Rumor has it that there is some top-secret video floating around too!)
Left Brissie the next day and am now living in Byron Bay! AWESOME place – more on THAT to come… ;D
