23 Aug COASTAL GETAWAY
I just can’t seem to keep still! For the past few weeks, all I can think about is exploring this beautiful country I call home. While I was gallivanting around Europe, fellow travelers from around the globe would frequently ask “do you ride a kangaroo to school?” or “what is it like having Christmas in Summer?” However the question that stuck was always regarding whether I had been to this place, or visited that…
And only then did it click, that Australia needs to be explored. Being deprived of the warmth of the sun within this Winter, I thought it was only appropriate that we explore the beaches that line our beautiful east coast. The squad and I ventured to Smiths Lake, exploring Booti Booti National Park, Bluey’s beach, Elizabeth beach and Shelley beach. And on a seperate occasion in the following week we visited The Entrance, where its beach was literally at our door step, and Terrigal was only a small drive away.
AirBNB makes planning a last minute, or even well-planned trip incredibly easy. It has been quite the life saver over the past few weeks making all of these little escapes possible. Maybe I’ll settle down now… or choose to blame it on the Venus retrograde.
The highlight was during our endeavor through Booti Booti National Park, walking slowly down through the trodden dirt path catching glimpses between the gaps among the trees that teased views of the ocean. Awaiting the end of the path was Shelley beach – a hidden oasis.
So where the bloody hell are ‘ya!
