Sydney Escapade

It has been 15 weeks since I last stepped foot off a plane and planted my feet firmly back on Melbourne soil. When I rewind back to August 16, 2010, I remember feeling as though my whole world had just come crashing down on me. I wanted to escape. I wanted to go back to my happy place where I lived a carefree life and enjoyed some of the greatest moments of my life.

I did not expect to find myself jumping back onto a plane as soon as tomorrow! As much as I dislike Sydney for its lack of culture and that warm, welcoming feeling that Melbourne oozes out in great masses, I will be spending my Friday through Sunday there for our annual, or in 2010’s case, bi-annual, friendship reunion. This event is usually held in Melbourne and earlier this year the event party came to me while I was living in Florida, however, this time we have decided to change it up a little – so Sydney it is.

As much as I’d hate to admit it, I am tingling with excitement – it is going to be one crazy weekend. And to think exactly one year ago today I was celebrating Thanksgiving at Disney World in Florida and preparing to drop it like it’s hot at the insanely amazing Black Friday sales at Best Buy! My, how a year flies!
