Byron Road Trip - Day 1

I've been to Byron Bay a few times but never with Ben and after hearing that Ben had never been I forcefully suggested it would be a great place to spend a few days at :) We literally only stayed two nights but I'm already reminiscing over how fond our holiday was! 

Today's entry is suitably titled 'day 1' :)


The cutest thing happened on our journey a little girl in another car kept waving at Gremlin. Actually we kind of suspected the family over took us so the little girl could get a proper look/wave. I took this photo just afterwards of gremlin :)

He finds the best spots :)


Arriving at the most random camp experience I've ever stayed at. We actually drove around town looking for a spot and all of them said "no pets" until we rang up the info centre and they directed us to Belongil Fields :)

Despite being a large camp grounds, (used to be home to a fairly big music festival) they had all of us campers in the one spot, we quickly learned we had two very different neighbours, a pair of AC/DC (very Aussie music!) dudes and some trance loving peeps on the other end of the spectrum. It made me smile repeatedly during our stay. The first night Ben and I actually fell asleep listening to the sounds of some rather uninspiring courtship attempts from the AC/DC dude :p

We arrived late afternoon, set up our tent, hang out read books and then went for a wander around town :)









Dinner was some yummo kebabs from bay kebabs.

 Which I can happily recommend :)
(although as Ben said, you can't really mess up a kebab!)



 And we finished the night off with some gelati :)
I'm going to try and get the rest of the entries up over the week before I forget what actually happened :P

Catch Day 2 here
and Day 3 here

    1. It was definitely a cute experience, he is definitely okay with car travel and I'd say he even prefers longer trips cause he just finds a good spot and goes to sleep :)
