Holiday….celebrate!! Woot :-)

It’s been a long time between drinks, those figurative drinks being holidays. And man do I feel like I’ve earned one. So on the 8th September I’m out of here for a little R&R in Samoa!!

So super excited. I’ve never been there before and the place looks truly beautiful. I’ll let you in on a little secret – I’ve been a fan of the American TV show ‘Survivor’ for many years now (I know, I know….lame) but let’s just keep that our little secret…..shhhhh…. Well anyway, back n 2009 Survivor was shot in Samoa and ever since I’ve been extremely keen on checking the place out. I mean, what’s not to like? Friendly locals, beautiful beaches, coral reefs, sun, surf…..it’s the whole package! And that’s where I’m finally going to be….so I guess I’ll have to tell you about it when I’m back….but I mean, look at this and tell me you don’t want to go:

To Sua Ocean Trench

Whoa….how time flies when you’re having fun!!

So, on my last update I shared that I’d moved back to Sydney, and well, I’m still here. It’s been 5 months yesterday. Kinda funny really, since yesterday was the first day I got sunburnt after being back. Damn was it hot…typical stupid tourist behaviour was what I displayed….doh!

But other than the temporary sunburn, life here is great, what can I say. In comparison with Berlin:

  • I wake up to the sea in my ears
  • I can quite literally see dolphins and whales from my bedroom window
  • The sun just doesn’t stop shining – well, unless there are the typical sub-tropical violent storms we occasionally get and are also super cool
  • People here are super friendly and super nice
  • The food is hugely varied, authentic and delicious
  • I have my family here
  • I have all my oldest friends here

And I’m still not done catching up with my friends. Of course I still miss my friends in Berlin, but as time goes by, that feeling becomes more distant. Sad but true….I guess that’s just how life goes.

Anyways, I got a haircut before Christmas and finally got rid of the Berlin mohawk. For Christmas I went up to the Hunter with Pia and her mum and met up with my parents. And then came back down to Sydney for New Years where I had a pretty quiet but awesome one (how very mature!) spending it on the cliffs of Maroubra with Pia.

So instead of boring you with more tales I’ll just share a few photos. So here you go 🙂 I hope you all had an awesome Christmas and New Year!! Hopefully we’ll all catch up at some point soon!! And here’s wishing you the best of 2016!!
