Sometimes we all need a little detour in our lives.
It can take the form of a vacation, or time off from work to relax and sleep, it can even just be a 15 minute walk every day.
Sometimes we just need to escape our daily life, forget all the drama and focus on something more beautiful.
A few weekends ago, my family and I headed up to Brisbane to watch my cousin commit her life to the love of her life. We spent our days relaxing in the city and it wasn't until I was there that I realised how much I needed this time away. We walked along the sunny streets, eating icecream and visiting museums. We drank coffee on the balcony and indulged in yummy desserts and we didn't care about the calorie count, not one bit. At night we ventured into Brisbane Festival and admired the beauty of fireworks. I seriously cannot get over their splendour.
Coming home was a little depressing but I felt refreshed and new, something I haven't felt in a while.
Sometimes it's the simplest trips that are the greatest.
Where was your latest detour in life? Where did you go to escape the madness of everyday?
