The annual pilgrimage to the holy land begins……

Well, it’s that time of year of year again, time to pack up my bikini and get my hippie on and head for Byron Bay. I am packing up the car tonight and heading out tomorrow, to overnight in Port Macquarie and then finish the drive to Byron on Monday.

I love this annual pilgrimage, this is my 5th year in a row that I have done this.  Usually it falls in the final week of the school holiday and allows me a final head clearing moment before I head back to the classroom.  This year it is a little earlier due to the way the holidays fell and as it happens, I don’t have a classroom to go back to.  It will be good because with all the negative things that have occurred in  my life in the last 2 months, I really feel I need a break and to de-stress.

I am not worried about my weight loss on this holiday.  Not only do I walk and swim laps every day when I go to Byron Bay, my accommodation is completely self-contained and so I will be in control of my food. I know that I will have a few meals out, but for the main part I will be cooking for myself.  I am taking the laptop so that I am able to follow my meal plan pretty closely and because I will be out and about all day, I should be able to exercise more than I have been at home.  The only red flag might be that I might have a few more drinks than normal, but if I am exercising more and eating pretty spot on food, it should not make too much difference.   I am planning to relax and let the peace and quiet wash the last couple of months away……..



PS These are last years pics, watch this space for new ones! Do excuse the terrible selfie….
