Had dinner with my mate tonight, excitedly planning his impending move and I realised that he is actually going to be 2,412kms away from me! Now admittedly I had a whole heap of trepidation about this because honestly he has been a bit of a rock for me and someone I could count on, however, it has just registered that I have this awesome new holiday destination to visit every few months and it’s only a couple of hours flight time to Bali.
I have booked myself in for the road trip to move him to his new home and of course I have taken centre stage with the whole interior design process. He has even ordered organic bamboo sheets for my bed, bless him! We have a 4 bedroom house to fit out not to mention the pool and the water feature I have suggested. The next few weeks will be busy indeed! I have put myself in charge of setting up the yoga room and have strongly suggested a swinging egg chair is an absolute necessity.
Now I’ve not spent a great deal of time in far North Queensland, however, I’m completely up for this new adventure! Sounds like an amazing place to relax for long weekends, although the thought of crocodiles and killer jelly fish make me a tad nervous. Not to mention the occasional cyclone but apparently there will be an emergency box should we need to bunker in and this will include red wine, so I think we will be ok!
Seriously though this guy has been an incredible friend. Tells it to me straight. Looks out for me. Picks me up and kicks me in the backside when I need it. I can tell him anything and know he’ll support me regardless. 1000% genuine and I’m very fortunate to have him in my life and I’d do the same for him. So now we will just do our regular dinners by Skype.
So sometime in June there will be a road trip and my mate will move into his new home and start his new life and I am proud of him for making this big move! To be honest I’m just looking forward to this road trip and the new holiday house, with a pool nonetheless! He’ll be so lucky to have me to help him settle in and blend him into the neighbourhood. I’m already planning the introduction process.
It doesn’t matter where you live or how many thousands of kilometres you are away, your true friends are your friends regardless. Genuine, authentic and always have your back. It’s not always easy to find real and I’m so lucky for the many beautiful people I have in my life.
Here’s to a new thrilling adventure for my mate and a new mini break destination for me! Oh and he said we are going pet adoption shopping, so my excitement is peaking. Be ready for the upcoming posts on the BIG move.
