being back in my favourite city of Australia feels so good. Waited so long. Always wanted to leave Ayr, always wanted my own space. After 1,5 days I'm so done with being on my own. Cant wait to spend my time with my cousin. And show her around my favourite city which is the most beautiful city in Australia too. I think farmwork made me a different person who doesnt want to be on her own that much anymore. Got so used to being around people. Here's to beautiful 5 weeks of roadtripping to Sydney. See you all there 💗 #perth#westernaustralia#australia#backpacker#cousinsontour#family#love

I consider myself extremely fortunate and lucky to have grown up and lived on the coast for my entire life. The ocean has always been a short drive, sometimes, a short walk, away. Without the ocean close by, I know my mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing would decline 🌊
Anytime I feel flustered or frazzled, a swim and freedive in the ocean is what fixes it. Under the ocean is literally my favourite place to be. It's so quiet and peaceful, and fish are so beautiful, curious and friendly - they always come and say hello 🐟🐠🐡 If my body is feeling out-of-whack (especially during pregnancy), a swim fixes it - the ocean is full of the bioavailable healing salts: magnesium, chloride and sodium which soothes typical aches and pains. Magnesium is also best absorbed through the skin, and a deficiency is linked to many ailments, including Type-2 diabetes. Which is also why it's uncommon to hear of regular surfers and ocean swimmers with Type- 2 diabetes 🌊 The ocean is also spiritually cleansing! The lifeforce and healing salts help cleanse the aura and the energy field, and helps recharge us as well🌊 From a larger perspective, the ocean absorbs about 1/3 of global CO2 emissions and helps regulate the climate. ALL of the beings that live in the ocean help keep OUR oceans healthy, so then we too, can be healthy 🌊🐟🐠🐡🐙🦈🐬🐙🐋🐳🦀🦐🦑🐚
If you see trash, pick it up, ditch single-use plastic and aim for "reusables." Don't let helium balloons or sky lanterns go into the sky. And mostly, don't support industries that strip the ocean or cause ocean dead zones. Go snorkelling or freediving and see these beautiful lifeforms firsthand. See how clever, curious, emotional and sentient they all are 🐟🐠🦑🦈🐋🐙
Our health depends on the health of our planet. And the health of our planet depends on the health of our oceans and nature. Be Well. Be Kind! 🧡💙💜💚💛

Out of limitation comes innovation.
When we started working on the opening menu offering for @byrdimelb we initially put together a list of things that we wouldn’t be able to use if we were going to only use Australian grown produce and Australian made spirits.
Right at the top of this list was Tequila and Mezcal.
In the lead up to opening we were fortunate enough to bring BYRDI to Russia with a pop up shift at @korobokmoscow
It was on this trip that we learned an incredibly effective technique for smoking pears. Once smoked and then distilled the end result was a spirit that had all the characteristics of a fruity and smokey Mezcal!
The end result was this highball for our debut menu.

Just want to get back on that road and drive! 🧡🚎
Yes, this was one of those moments where Brett is forced to stop the bus, drop me and the camera off and drive back down the road so we can capture the amazing beauty we were experiencing on our drive.
I truly think this little stop was absolutely worth it! It’s one of our fave Bessie pics 🧡🧡🧡
How often do you find yourself reliving your drive for the camera? 📸 Or is it just us? 😂
