So, for the first time, I was one of the lucky ones and was able to enjoy the bank holiday that is only available to bank employees (and some other financial institutes). We were supposed to go to the snow, but unfortunate events led to those plans going down the drain. Since my partner had already had leave approved for the same Monday I had off, we decided to just pick a place and go - and then we arrived at Port Stephens!
The weather was amazing despite the wind (which ruined our fishing plans). The sun was constantly shining! Unfortunately, we couldn't enjoy the awesome mote-like pool at the hotel either as it acted more like a wind tunnel.
All in all, it was a great getaway full of spontaneity and adventure.
