a day out and about
This year my husband and I have decided that we should try and be like normal people and we really should have a day off work once in a while.
With myself working 24/7 running Bespoke Press, and soon about to resume Graphic Design lecturing a few nights a week im pretty darn busy. Hayden flys around the country most days of the week, coming home several days later and then running his own business as well as helping out in our printing studio. So it can be a pretty crazy lifestyle (although we do love it) but we don't often get time off to explore our new surrounds here in Queensland.
Today we headed down south to Mt Tambourine in the Gold Coast Hinterland and spent a beautiful day exploring this incredible region. Its simply so beautiful, I think I could give up our seaside coastal living for a hinterland lifestyle without too much hesitation!
We did a 3km baby hike through the beautiful cedar creek area, ate a divine lunch of potato pancakes with bacon and sour cream & salad (oh so yum and so worth it after our hike), went on the gallery trail and explored the galleries, tickled ourselves pink in second hand book shops (we could spend ALL day looking at books) and then stumbled across some gorgeous antique shops. Just so perfect, it was our ideal way to spend a day. Although next time I must learn though... go somewhere where there is no iphone Internet connection, I simply just couldn't help myself checking in constantly!
Brisbane ladies, what is your favourite day trip? Im starting to think about our next date already...
