When a friend moved back to her homeland of Australia, I jumped at the chance to join her in the land down under. We embarked on a road trip that took us up and down the East Coast of the continent. It was a blend of nature and culture. We soaked in the sun, drank coffee after coffee, spent lazy days swimming laps, bought way too many Aussie-designer clothes, and relished many a sunset cocktail. I found the ease and dedication to a well-lived life to be the most interesting takeaway from time in Australia. This attitude shines through in the art.
