it’s been just over two weeks since we left australia and i have so much to tell you about our merry escapades and adventures, but here’s the main reason the blog is being neglected:
i’m trying ardently to be a ‘person of the outside’.
this is a reference to my dear friend ladan. she’s one of those people who will look you in the eye and quietly, but firmly, tell you that your deodorant isn’t working. everyone needs a friend like that because at the end of the day, real friends don’t let you stink/have cilantro stuck in your teeth/tell you that you suit hammer pants.
anyway. dev & i stayed with ladan a few times when we were in melbourne and so she got to observe our day-to-day existence and the fact that when we are in work mode we forget to go outside. or eat. or shower. one day ladan referred to me and dev as ‘people of the inside’ and i guess it left an impact.
my mum also had the same concern about our work habits and she finally figured that the only way to lure us away from our laptops was with food. needless to say we ate REALLY well at home.
afrooz & luke distracted us with their fancy spot of paradise (a.k.a. manly beach)
nina & brendon wooed us with sunsets over the black sandy beaches of piha.
and now samoa beckons with it’s tropical delights.
and so, we’re learning to unplug.
