P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney

Almost 24 years ago, I was born. In Sydney, as a matter of fact.
I have been back once since then, but as a snobby, shopping obsessed teenager – so I don’t like to count it.

This past long weekend, however, I got a proper visit back to my old home town. It was magical.

My boss (and also friend) and I flew in Friday afternoon, checked into our hotel and shortly afterwards were picked up by an old friend for dinner.

We met working at a hostel in London, and still have a lot of mutual friends from that world-wind trip, which meant that the night was spent catching up and reminiscing.
He took us to the sweetest seafood restaurant on the river in Balmain, with this breathtaking view.

Sunny Side Up

I love Sundays.
I love breakfast.
I love sunshine.
I love coffee.
I love eggs.
As much as a try to deny it, I love bacon.

What I don’t love is riding my bike up steep hills after I demolished this plate of awesomeness.

We rode to a mate’s house for a late brunch to celebrate his birthday. I say late, because we didn’t eat until midday because of two very hungover “friends” struggling to get out of bed. I got hangry, they are lucky to be alive.

The ride there was quick and easy, the company was amazing and the food even better. The ride home, however,¬†was a huge shock to the system and a massive reminder that I am not as fit as I’d like to be.
Time to get back into gear!
