Wooohoooooo! Summer is here!!
And what better way to celebrate than to leave. To a cold country in winter. And the snow.
Yes summer-loving bumpkins, tomorrow morning I’ll be jetting off to Japan. Don’t feel bad for me though. For a start, that’s one more space on the beach for you to lay your towel. One more sunny sidewalk spot for you in a hip Bondi café.
Seriously don’t feel bad. Japan is one of my favourite countries in the world. And those of you who know me know that, as much as I love my Bondi home, I have an unquenchable desire to travel.
I’m not talking about enjoying a holiday break as most people do. I mean every fibre of my being is in a constant state of compulsion to move. All the time.
Not a day goes by where I don’t think about taking off exploring the world, engaging in other cultures, tasting different foods, seeing new events, being amazed and challenged. I thrill in the task of finding the perfect place to stay, stretching resources and getting from A to B in a unique way.
I love being overwhelmed by the diversity of our world. And grounded by the common threads that run through all societies.
I’m coming back soon of course. Life is a little more complicated than continually being free to roam the world. Or is it? I’ll be exploring these concepts in a project called Gyspy Gene if you’re interested (or indeed inflicted in the same way…).
I’ll still be sharing the Bondi summer love each week as usual. We have some great giveaways coming up, including $1000 worth of tickets to 3 fantastic New Years Eve events, and a bucket load of Bondi hip happenings, as always.
So slap on the sunscreen, slip into the summer and think of me gallivanting blissfully across the globe!
Yours in winter wanderlusting… x andy
