TITLE: Bondi Beckons!
IN SHORT: Back on the road! It began with an hours drive to the airport. Just so you know – I take to flying like a duck to wet cement so the journey never really begins until the wheels hit the tarmac. Then it’s on! I hoisted 20kgs of luggage on to my back, put my 9kg daypack on my front and swung my handbag over my head. I looked like an over laden turtle and walked much like one too. I found a bus that took me directly to Bondi Junction – thankfully all the elderly people that got on were able to get seats so I didn’t need to feel bad about my luggage sitting up along side me playing corners. Forty five minutes later I was dragging my gear down the bus steps and across the station floor as my friends arrived to meet me, friends I had made in Margaret River on stage one that were kind enough to put me up for two nights! Once I’d inhaled lunch it was time to meet up with another friend for a long overdue drink.
Spanish was on the menu for dinner, the place had so much atmosphere. The live music took you right back to the streets of Barcelona and the tapas was sensational. I’m convinced the lead singer morphed into Guy Sebastian at one stage though that may have been a result of the Sangria.
TIP: Fog and road works make for more coffee on your jeans than you would probably like.
