Bondi Up and Away!

Bondi Up and Away at Bondi Beach, Sydney NSW Australia, Andy Solo

Has anybody found this year a little slower to get going than usual? Don’t get me wrong; I’m busy working away, jogging at the crack of dawn, eating well, out and about, and all the usual stuff.

Made with Love in Bondi

Our Big Kitchen Smiles, cooking with love for the homeless at Bondi, Sydney

When good friends of mine said they were going to have a function at the place they met to host their combined Hens/Bucks party, I had visions of tacky tiara’s, too much alcohol and too little clothing at an eastern suburbs pub.
