Sydney

After a short jaunt to the New Zealand, we made our way back to Sydney to be reunited with the wedding crew. We had two short days before people started heading back home to the US – I spent an extra couple of days in Sydney, soaking up the sun and exploring all of the beaches, restaurants and sites.

Amazing brunch spread. The Grounds was an incredible last meal!

The next morning I boarded a plane for the Gold Coast, where I booked in a few days of solo relaxation in Byron Bay (book, beach) before making my way back to the real world (via 35 hours of travel).
