Oh No

I think I could get hooked on surfing. I had my first opportunity to learn how to surf the other day at Arrawarra Beach, north of Sydney. Once you get up on that board and ride a wave for a few seconds, it's addicting. I easily got lost in the experience of spotting the wave, flipping that board around, and trying to hop up and let it take you as far as your balance can manage. Afterwards, I was really looking forward to my last stop in Hawaii (maybe I'll find some waves in NZ as well).

It'd been an exhausting few days with a dive, another hike to the Byron lighthouse, surf camp (and afterparty), then a miserable six hour bus ride back to Sydney. It's time to say goodbye to the girls once again and after hanging with them for a few months, it's getting a bit more difficult.

I'm looking forward to seeing my family in Sydney again. It's been more than a month since I left and whirled around the rainy eastern side of Australia. I have to say it hasn't been the most pleasant time of my travels but there were amazing moments that I will not forget.

    Hey Tony,

    Just catching up on your blog again. Nice to see you tried surfing as well on your travels! I took a 3 day surf course about a year ago in Newquay, England and can't wait to go again! I never laughed so hard in my life.
