We were rewarded at the bottom, a 30 metre high water fall with sheer cliff faces all around.

A running creek caressed by green grass in the yonder, we swam our way to the base of falls immersing ourselves, feeling the power and engrossing ourselves in our surroundings.

The Roadtrip Diaries – New travellers join the adventure in Byron Bay

A spontaneous rendezvous with 2 french travellers Pierre and Perrick in the Tallows beach car park. We met this 2 funny frenchies during our time in Noosa.

They were also planning to travel down to Sydney and had met 2 Austrians during a work and stay at a farm near Coolum. A handshake, an invitation to join the roadtrip diaries was a pivot point for a unbelieveable experience in the days follow. It became a defining point in all our lives and affirmed why travel is such a special experience  to be shared.

We eased into it taking a stopover in Minnie water. We found a paradisiac, deserted beach got wet and played in the shore break,  bodysurfing buzzing off the energy of the waves and our surroundings.

After we kicked back on our own beach and enjoyed some Cock + Bull while our new troop got to know each other. Nothing like a few cock + bulls to break the ice!

We spent the late afternoon listening to the Austrian Florian oozing out classic tunes on the guitar and accordian,  backing vocals supplied by the sounds of nature all around us.

Sitting around together, sipping on cock + bull, the light softening, I think we were all in a good place excited for the adventure in the days to come.
