I still haven’t quite gotten through all the photos from this past week and I need to. My camera memory card is full and I need to tackle that technological beast soon. But I finally have a day to sit down and relax. And by relax I actually mean get some work done. I am currently sitting in a coffee shop in Burleigh Heads. [Awkwardly.. I might add. I'm pretty sure this isn't the kind of coffee shop you bust out your computer at. Dumb American.]
So far this will have been the longest, least planned trip I have ever been on. I booked my ticket the night before my flight, rented a car on the spot, wandered into the city to find a vacant campervan, and slept and surfed where ever the wind settled. In one week Brooke and I have been up and down a portion of the Eastern Coast [several times], surfed a handful of new waves, met heaps of new friends, hung out with old ones, and had the time of our lives. And that was only one week. Now my travel buddy has gone back to Hawaii and I am deciding what to do for the next month. An entire month of impromptu traveling and last minute plans! Yew!
Fortunately, I have an Aussie/Hawaiian friend in the area and have settled at her place for a while. She’s already been a crucial part of our random weekend adventures and shown us the ropes in Noosa. So thankful for friends like that. Tina is one of those gifted Hawaiian girls that just so happens to be Australian too. The best of both worlds. But I also think that’s why surfing is such an amazing lifestyle and culture. You can travel half way across the world and find a friend in a foreign place. We are a part of such a rad community of openminded, salty skinned, well traveled creatures. Her and I just went logging this morning and watched the sun rise. It cannot get much better than that.
I will try to organize my photos and share more travel adventures. In the meantime, we will be planning our next adventure [camping and surfing in Angourie for the weekend please?!]
To logging adventures and great friends!
