Byron Bay, Australia. What a place. Think VW vans everywhere you look, smoothie bowls, fresh juices and great coffee at every corner, hippies giving out free mango smoothies, music and dancing on the beach every night and some killer shopping. We decided since we were already going to be in Australia on a work trip, we might as well make a detour over to Byron Bay for a little vacation. An hour flight from Sydney landed us in this amazing town full of all things unique, original and totally amazing. 

Life seemed to operate at a compellety different pace here. Nobody seemed to be in a rush, everyone was incredibly kind and welcoming to us and people just seemed to be enjoying life in a fuller way than most places we've been too. We truly wished we could of stayed longer to the point that we started looking into apartments for rent in the area. If you ever find yourself in Australia, do yourself a favor and go spend a while in this super chill beach town.
