I have always thought of myself as a bit of a city girl. I feel like I thrive in a big city and love the convenience and excitement that you feel when walking down a busy street. But something about waking up in our cottage that was in the middle of nowhere, leisurely starting the day with no where really to be and jumping on our pushbikes to ride down the empty streets made me realise that I also really love the countryside.
If you follow me on twitter you will probably know that we had a fantastic weekend away in Hunter Valley about two weeks ago, yet I am only just getting around to blogging about it. I have so many photos and stories to share from our fun-filled trip, hope you enjoy them!
After an early start on Friday morning to get to the airport in time for our 5:30am flight, we were a little concerned to hear our names broadcast over the loudspeaker, blasting out in Brisbane airport.
Anyone who has heard of Byron will be aware of the iconic lighthouse, situated on the most easterly point of Australia. Of course, a visit to Byron is not complete without at least one visit to the lighthouse, and you all know that Kris and I are keen for any photo opportunity. Consider yourself pre-warned that this is a very image heavy, touristy post.
The first thing I do when I check into accommodation is to grab the folder of information and make myself comfortable, reading up on what the place has to offer. It didn’t matter that I have been to Byron Bay plenty of times, there is always something new to discover with each visit.
Our weekend was spent in the most perfect little B&B in the centre of Byron, Byron Bathers, and I cannot rave enough about the place.
We are back to reality after a fabulous long weekend away, and although I am glad to be back in my own bed, I kinda wish I could run away and live in a B&B in Byron forever.
Still feeling exhausted after an early wakeup call for sunrise photos yesterday, but it was well worth it so I can’t wait to go through and edit my photos.
An essential for any holiday is good food. A little research online is usually all it takes to pinpoint some decent places to eat, yet the research becomes even more important while looking for ‘veggo-friendly’ places, to avoid wandering around hungry looking at menus all day.
I know you are probably sick of reading about our Sydney adventure, but I just have to dedicate a whole post to food, and photos of course.
