Goodbyes are always SO hard! They are even harder when you’re saying goodbye and have no idea when you will be visiting again! Bryan said we will try and come to Australia every 2 years. So far, our track record is every 4 years.
I’m laughing because as I was finishing up the last of our Australia posts I received an email advertising flights from Texas to Australia for $700+! This is the lowest I’ve EVER seen! Maybe it will be in the cards for us to go sooner than 12 months. Only time will tell. The tickets haven’t been booked but I’m pretty determined!
We tried to go swimming or snorkeling every day we were in Sydney. Some days the weather wasn’t cooperating. Zeph and I went out to check the conditions at all our favorite spots. We decided to send videos back to everyone at the house with the conditions from all the beaches.
When we got to Sydney Leanne had made us a delicious dinner plus an amazing flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Last time we were in Australia we didn’t know that I’m allergic to almonds so, not knowing Leanne made the cake with almond meal. She felt so bad that I couldn’t eat the cake that while we were in Kangaroo Valley she made a new cake with hazelnut meal so that I could eat it! If that isn’t an amazing friend I don’t know what is! That’s the kind of friend I hope to be to others!
By the way; the cake was amazing!
Of course we stopped for coffee and food! I LOVE the coffee there but there just isn’t enough of it! I always ordered a piccolo which is espresso with a bit of milk in it. So, less than a latte but more than just a shot of espresso. I did find an interesting observation though. When I was in Australia I took the time to sit and enjoy my coffee. I wasn’t rushed to get to schooling, or rushing out the door to an appointment. I just sat there and enjoyed my coffee and company. Why is it that we get into our routines and we rush through the good things in life??? These past few weeks I’ve tried to slow down and really enjoy the goodness in life instead of rushing from one thing to the next. I’ll let you know how that’s going in a few months.
We visited a TINY French bakery. They were very busy so Eden and I stood outside and drooled over the amazing pastries in the window. It is VERY uncommon to find doughnuts in Australia. Eden sure enjoyed the pink one we found at the bakery!
