For the last two months I have been FIFO Gold Coast - Melbourne. I’ve been ever so grateful to be singing up a storm with my beloved @thepacificbelles on a regional tour of Victoria, Australia. We travelled to Yea, Tarwin Lower, Tyers, Wangaratta, Bright, Albury, Bena, Mirboo North, Toora, Alexandra, Ruffy, Yarroweyah, Charlton, Cororooke, Lakes Entrance, Orbost & Mallacoota. 10 flights, 17 gigs, 4 workshops, early mornings and late nights, Friday night pizza, long car trips, laughter & much Austrlaian wildlife. To the one who kept it all on schedule, Bossy Betty, the lovely Miss @misslashes...thank you. I can’t wait til We’ll Meet Again ☺️
