Byron Bay: get out quickly or you'll stay forever

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 24 July 2008 | Views [986]

Byron Bay: As the hippie-backpacker-touristy-surfer town that everyone in Australia knows and loves and yearns to live near, Patrick and I found it difficult to leave Byron Bay.  We spent our four (extended from three) days giving into Byron's siren call into its lifelong holiday: we lounged on the beach (yup, northern-Australian winters are hot!), got up two hours before dawn to hike to the lighthouse for sunrise, discovered beaches in the nooks and crannies of Australia's rugged coast, drank with friends, ate good vegan food (finally!) and super-saturated ourselves with the peaceful, cleansing nature of one of the world’s greatest places to be. Now I understand why it was important to visit all those nothing-towns along the coast… to be able to truly appreciate how remarkable Byron is, being so full of life!
