Where is your private heaven?

We’ve done a lot of travelling this year. It’s been crazy. Great – but crazy. While we’re still away now, it’s hard to think about life happening and carrying on back home.

What I discovered was kind of humbling. We are always on the look-out for something new, something unique, something perfect. What we sometimes forget is what we have close to us is still pretty good.

We’re the other side of the world being places, doing things, eating food and drinking drinks we’ll never be able to in Australia. But just an hour away in the Gold Coast are places like this just waiting for us.

It doesn’t have to be an empty beach at Surfers Paradise. It could be a field or a little woodland. A town you love or a building. It could be as simple as a favourite bench you like to sit on or a book you can lose yourself in.

It’s a nice feeling to know you don’t have to go that far to find wonderment, isn’t it?
