Madrid was my first flight of this month!! Amazing! I fell head over heels for the city! It is so so so beautiful and the people even more so! I Can’t explain it but it was somewhere that I just arrived at and instantly fell in love with. I know I will spend more time in the gorgeous city in the future.
Despite my bus breaking down, finding my way to the city by a map and in my heeled boots and walking miles and spending way too much I had an amazing time!!
Had a wonderful lunch out in the sun, reading my new book, Eleven Minutes! Perfection <3
Durban followed, again I went for my usual run (but ran a lot further this time and felt really good) then did some groceries and chilled out.
Then a casual turnaround to India because I was a little naughty and unfortunately forgot my I.D for a flight :(
But soon after Mum, Nan and Gdad arrived and we had a wonderful time together!! Exploring the Malls, enjoying the weather, having some drinks and heading to the Marina! Was lovely but went way too quick! Dad popped over for a few hours only and then the four of them went on to Europe for a cruise of the Med! So jealous!!
And Murphy’s Law would have it, when half my family is in London I get rostered a flight to Perth… couldn’t swap off it to spend time with Mum and Dad and his family in London so I went on over to Perth for a Friday night out with all my friends!
Meg spoiled me rotten, bringing me a healthy dinner, drinks and made sure I had the best layover! We got smashed-had a huge night and passed out in the hotel room. The next day I got some shopping done while Meg visited family and then we met again for a late lunch! She really is such a special friend I am so so so lucky to have her in my life and I can’t wait until we are in the same city once more!!!!
After Perth I had Hong Kong and Jakarta. Hong Kong was nice with a friend Jade, we just spent the day shopping and exploring before I went running in the evening.
Jakarta was again spent getting massages, eating healthy and sleeping well!
In days off we had a brunch for Mario and Willy’s birthday. This was a lovely, eventful night. Good times are always had at Warehouse brunch!
This month was a bit average for the first half but pretty damn good at the end.
So like any good written article I will skip quickly over the boring bits… obviously some good times in Dubai were splattered in here.
Manila - Shopping and gym-what else is there to do?!
Durban - Chill night, Run to and along the beautiful coast line and back, bought new Nike’s and groceries.
Jakarta - So much sleep! Gym, Tan, Massage.
Next flight was lots more fun… I got to surprise Mitch and Tia on their flight home from Europe! Seeing their faces when they saw me was priceless and having them on board was lots of fun and made the flight go super quick!!
Landed in Perth at a horrible hour, met Yannis (lead singer of The Foals at the airport-I had seen him on the flight but was thinking that surely he wouldn’t be in economy by himself….but yes it was him!)
Mum took us all home, spoke to everyone for a while, got to bed way to late and up way too early! Went to breakfast at Yelo with Mum, Nan and Gdad and then had a bit of a shop with Mum in North Beach and Karrinyup! Mannnn I miss Aussie shopping!!!
Came home just in time for the girls to join me for some much needed chats!! Had a lovely afternoon before straight away heading all the way to Rockingham for my Uncle’s birthday dinner where I was able to surprise him and my cute little cousin as well! Had a super fun time at dinner, just talking so much inappropriate shit with my Uncles and having a laugh! Mum dropped me back at the hotel to rest before my flight but I was on such a high I just laid in bed awake…. which meant the flight home was horrible!!!
After this I had some time off before heading to Melbourne/Auckland where I was meeting Ayden a friend from home, who was lucky enough to be in Melbourne for the AFL grand final!
Had an awesome trip. Good catch ups and lots of yummy food! Was awesome being in Melbourne on GF weekend even if I couldn’t go to the match-the atmosphere was amazing and I even managed to watch some of the parade-while waiting to cross the road to get new jeans from Green with Envy of course!!
Auckland was amazing as always! Watched the GF on the treadmill at the gym and got my grocery shopping done. The morning of the flight I walked to Ponsonby and sampled some delightful coffee and bought some yummy treats from Little Bird Cafe!!
The only downer of this trip was the horrible person who decided to pay for their duty free with an invalid credit card…thus costing me about $1000! Not the best… but hey I learnt a lesson-always trust your instincts!!
