I am absolutely in love with the ocean. So much so, that I don’t like being too far from it. But, I did make an exception for a very special place called Tamworth. It was the only place I visited that was that far out from the coast. It was about a 3 hour drive away from Newcastle, but it literally felt like a world away at times. The mountains, the quiet, the chilly nights — it was different than the city life that I’ve grown up in but it was beyond beautiful.
I’m not much of a mountaineer but I always try to do something different wherever I end up. So this time, I conquered a 6km hike to the top of Flag Staff Mountain just in time to watch the sun go down!
Although traveling around was fun. Staying at the Geddes’ was just as adventurous. Trevor’s onesie birthday party at the Geddes’ house!
The Geddes’ would spoil me with amazing breakfast every morning that came with my own little name on it.
My first and only attempt at Two-Up. It’s basically heads-or-tails betting game that is only legal to play during Anzac Day. I won about 60AUD then lost it all again before I decided it was best for me to just watch. Haha!
I was finally able to get that 3rd piercing that I’ve always wanted! It was spontaneous and scary, but I am so ready to get a 4th and 5th one!!
Tamworth was like my home away from Newcastle. Until this very day, I am so grateful and thankful to the Geddes family for opening their hearts and their home to a little Asian outsider like me. Every time I went over, I always felt like I was home. I’m really not much of a country kid, but this place really did charm it’s way to my heart. :)
