Byron Byron Byron!
Famous for its alternative hippie vibe that casts a spell over anyone who visits, creating one great barefooted surfy little town. We were apart of a surprise birthday in Byron Bay a few weeks ago for Mitch’s older sister! What a way to use this as an excuse to get back on the bike, taking time out of our busy scheduled week to relax and indulge in this much needed getaway. Just like everyone else, a road trip – short, long or only if it’s an hour away from home will always help clear the mind!
We’ve both been brought up on the Gold Coast, so whenever we do get a chance to visit this amazing town we always leave with the best of memories! Our first stop was to check out the Byron Markets and which might I add, was my first but definitely not my last visit.
Their range of locally made and owned produce instantly caught my eye! The hard work and effort that goes into their one of a kind unique artwork is just amazing. It’s best to arrive early and to allow a few hours to take in all the stalls, beat the crowd and grab some of the freshest food! The markets are on every first and third Sunday of the month and it’s only a small donation to enter.
We so badly wanted to splurge, go all out and buy EVERYTHING that we saw but we were on the bike and our backpack was already so full! Although we did manage to buy the sickest mandala throw, literately the size of a king size bed. As you can tell it’s just a little to big to handle aha.
The surprise went exactly to plan even though the birthday girl was a few hours late haha. It was held at the Beach Hotel, a family bar/restaurant right opposite the main beach! Perfection at its finest… We had such an amazing day here in Byron celebrating with family and friends! Epic markets, beers on the beach, acoustic beats, sounds of the waves, good vibes only and all of that good stuff.
And while the sun sets, our jumpers, gloves, scarves and beanies came on. Leaving one beloved town with a very very cold 9 degree ride home… Thank you for having us Byron, see you again soon!
Much love, K x
