Storytime: I arrived in the incredible Byron Bay, Australia on a Friday night, a few moons ago with a huge squad of party people and we sent it. We absolutely sent it, the most Byron Bay way possible…beers were guzzled, tequila was slammed, and beaches were slept on (do not recommend). I woke up (thankfully) back in my hostel, Johnny Depp-style hungover, dazed and confused. The rest of the squad was nowhere to be seen! Hello anxiety my old friend.
It then hit me that we had a kayak trip booked early doors that morning to go socialise with the local cute AF dolphins. In a panic checking my sandy, beer-stained phone (that was also sporting a lovely new crack straight down the centre) …it was 12:30pm…3.5 hours after our set departure time, and exactly like that time I sacrificed 2 hours of my life to witness Tom Cruise’s remake of “The Mommy” …I have never forgiven myself.
Morel of the story is everything in moderation! OR don’t do what I did and book an early excursion the morning after a big night. If you know that Thursday morning you must be up early to do something cool, maybe don’t go for that 4th tequila.
Tip – Get a buddy and have a tactical chat…
” Dude, if you see me with a shot tonight, do a Will Smith and slap that shit out of my hand”
“Girl, the minute I start rapping every word to boom boom pow…take me home”
