Today we leave Byron for Surfers Paradise. Byron has been so so amazing and we wish we had longer here! It's got everything! Beach, surfing, chilled out atmosphere, good clubs and bars, just everything is fab. It's like living a dream.
We've spent a lot of time chilling on the beach and wandering through town. There's so many cool hippy shops that sell the best clothes. Cams bought some shorts and a Byron Bay t-shirt ( proper tourist ;) ) and I've bought some dresses.
The surf here isn't that good at the minute but I've been lucky enough to have one good day while Han chilled on the beach.
We've been out loads, there's so many cool bars and clubs, especially this one called Beach Hotel. There was a sick house dj playing and a massive outdoor area with tons of bars. The dream club/bar. And when you go outside there's amazing hippy buskers playing and everyone's just dancing around them, it's so cool.
We also met loads of cool people here! Our fave was this New Zealand guy, he was sweet and such a crazy little drunk! We've met some English people, loads of Germans and Swedens as per and this mega cool Australian dude who lives in Byron. He's set up his own camp in the bush right by the beach. Cam was so jel, that was his idol. It looks insane and he literally gets up every morning and goes for a surf. We've also met loads of locals which are the best people to meet and they all say they would never leave Byron.
When we go into town, we call this free bus that picks you up but it's for this certain club. Every night we've just called for a lift then gone straight past to somewhere else haha. We've also been out for a lush meal at this mega cool small busy restaurant and bumped into this American girl we met the night before who waitressed here! So weird!
Yesterday we went to this small hippy town called Nimbin. We booked with this tour which was insane, we got picked up on this old 60's hippy bus which played 60's music. The dude driving was so cool, he's done this for 19 years and only ever had a proper job for 3 months. The towns rules are a little bit like Amsterdam's rules. We then went to a creek and got made BBQ burgers and sausages and just lay in the sun chilling and laughing for ages. Probably one of the best days ever!
Cammy's and Han's favourite place in the whole wide world!
We're staying at Surfers for 2 nights and although it's gonna be a completely different vibe to here, the nightlife is gonna be sweet. Going to miss Byron a lot though!
Lots of love! Cam and Han! X
