Work, work, work… holidays, yay.
Recently my partner and I chose to spend a week’s leave in the northern rivers. We chose a welcoming B&B just outside of Bangalow. An idyllic setting, a diversity of cultures unequalled in Australia, and potholes like you wouldn’t believe!
After a few days of taking the minor roads to enjoy the natural beauty we gave up. Even the short drive to Byron Bay had us on edge and constantly on the lookout for the next enormous pothole to jar the body and soul, not to mention our poor car. (It’s okay, we had it repaired.)
Why are there not picture postcards glorifying these natural wonders (potholes) as well as the views of sunsets, fabulous beaches and spectacular scenery? We’ll come back when the roads are fixed. Until then, and when asked by our friends about our break, our comments will be ‘very relaxing; don’t drive anywhere’.
