Okay, so I have returned to my blog after months on end, and, yes, I know I say this every time I return, but I am actually back this time! The oddest part of my return is actually reading my last post back to myself, which I posted two days after we all clinked our glasses to ring in the New Year and say a big hello to 2014. In said post, I declared to change absolutely nothing about my life, make no resolutions, plans or promises, and to try and keep everything exactly the same. Well. Pretty much the second I posted that blog entry, the universe must have laughed, because suddenly everything changed!
I got into a long distance relationship, and by long distance, mean LONG distance. 11,000 miles to be exact. Yes, you guessed it. Australia. Not only Australia, bloody Melbourne. So basically the furthest away he could possibly be! I know what you’re thinking, and yes it sounds ridiculous, but I can tell you that the stigma surrounding long distance is certainly outdated. How much time do we actually find in our busy lives to sit down and talk face to face with our friends and family that live minutes away from us? Hardly any. They’re always there, and life gets busy. But how long do I spend talking to my boyfriend face to face, all be it on Skype? About 15 hours a week. Its actually surprisingly fabulous. Anyway, this crazy roller coaster, while expensive, has allowed me to spend 3 weeks in Australia, and it was the absolute trip of a lifetime. Yes I’ve come back hideously poor and struggling to make rent, but I don’t even care!
We roadtripped the Great Ocean Road, spent 4 nights in Lorne (the most adorable beachside haven), 2 nights in Sorrento, went to watch the tiny penguins at Phillip Island, explored Melbourne, and visited Sydney. If you’ve never been, its something you really really must do. Here are some snaps!
