Hello from Stradbroke Island, Australia! This part of the trip was never planned, but I’m so happy we ended up here. The weather has been a bit spotty with rain, clouds, and sunshine, but the temperature is super warm so it’s totally okay with me. Yesterday we drove on the beach (something you can’t do back in the states), ate a delicious cheese board on our balcony at sunset hour, and went out for a nice dinner up the road from the house we’re staying at.
Yesterday morning I went for a run by myself, and it was the best way to learn about the island! I always think walking /running is the best way to discover a new place. You remember where things are (more than you would driving in a car) and you get the chance to stop anywhere and talk to some locals. How do you guys prefer discovering new places?
