I love a weekend away. Getting out of Sydney, whether to the coast, the country or another city makes my heart full. Whether it’s to visit family and friends, have a romantic getaway or just a solo explore something about a weekend away makes me feel like my time has not been wasted.
Recently my boyfriend and I visited his family on a sheep and cattle property in Cooma, NSW. I love the rustic way of life there, hiking in the hills, driving the farm Utes and sitting by the fire with a good wine. It can sometimes feel claustrophobic coming back to the city after a weekend like that.
The country grounds me. I feel connected to the earth. I don’t care that I have no makeup on or that my jeans are covered in dirt. It’s a different way of life and it’s a refreshing, welcome change to a week in the city.
