Staying a week in Byron was blissfull. For those of you that dont know Byron it is the most easterly point of Australia. It is a place full of beauty and has a wonderful energy.You go to Byron to recharge, so it was a great starting point for us. I spent the mornings with Rach, my yoga teacher, adjusting the Japanese students that were doing their Yoga Teacher Training. It was really wonderful to be invloved in the training and that energy. I practiced Rach's class on Friday which was just so wonderful. Rach is such an amazing teacher, so inventive and spontaneous. The rest of our time in Byron was mostly hanging out and reading. For the first few days we kept asking one another "Well, what shall we do now then?" Paul has found it especially difficult to relax and get out of the 9-5 routine but slowly slowly we are getting used to it. We had a picnic on the beach where we saw a pod of about 20 dolphins off Watego's Beach which was just magical.We went up to the lighthouse which has to be one of my most favourite places in Australia and we even saw a whale in the ocean, well the blow spray of it, it was still a great thing to see. One our last evening we went to the Arts Factory and saw a fire show which was pretty cool. That's what I love about Byron so much, the vibe. Everyone is just so relaxed and alternative. I must say I have never seen so many dreads in my life!! Byron is a place that you can visit but it is so easy to get sucked in to what I call the Byron bubble, protected from reality. It would be a strange place to live, to live inside that bubble. I love Byron and know that one day I will return.
After Byron we went back to Brisbane for the Siverchair & Powderfinger concert which was amazing. Both bands were fantastic. Silverchair were very artistic and Powderfinger just rocked!!! I dont know what it is with Brisbane though, I was very disapointed that no one actually danced!!!! Yes you read right,I know!!! It is a bloomin rock concert and everyone sat on their bums - except for me of course. I love to dance and I even got verbal abuse. One guy even shoved me on the shoulder. Life is to short to sit on your bum tapping your toes, get up and boogie baby!!!!
The next night we went to the Riverfire with Jen and watched a spectacular firework show it was a great finale to our time in Brissy.
