[delicious drinks and beautiful views at the Bondi Icebergs Surf Club]
Happy new year 8 days late! (This is actually in advance for next year, so, you’re welcome. I’m very prompt.)
I’ve been back in beautiful Boulder for a week now, and boy has it been a whirlwind. Big changes at work, friends moving, snowstorms…but really, who cares about that stuff? I went to Australia!
The rest of my trip went swimmingly (sorry) in Sydney, where I was careful to spend a lot of time sunning myself on the beach, drinking beer, and eating delicious Aussie desserts. It was very hard.
Anyway, here are pictures. I’m going to cook something this week. And that’s a promise! Disclaimer: if you don’t like beaches, leave now.
[These flowers are EVERYWHERE in Sydney – they’re called Agapanthus. Once, when I was in fifth grade, our teacher made us write a short story or poem about something called an Agapanthus as homework, and everyone brought in epic poems about monsters and dinosaurs. Then we found out that they were these. Major buzzkill, but the sort of look like alien flowers, so that’s a little more gratifying.]
[The fam at Watson’s Bay for fish and chips on our last day. Fun fact: I am wearing glasses beneath my sunglasses due to a really fun, unexpected eye infection. How’s that for trivia?? See ya, Sydney!]
Love the travel, but glad to be home! I hope you’re all still kicking ass in the new year!
