I usually spend winter vacations with my family at the apartment in Portsea, off the coast of Melbourne in Australia. This year, we were there for a week a did plenty of lazing around by the beach, reading, swimming, cooking and eating. Sorrento, a a busier town next to Portsea has THE best fish and chips, in all its deep-fried, beer-battered glory and we also had the best strawberry sundae I've ever tasted. A highlight was also running in Point Napean Park, a 22km run along a stretch of road on cliffs which gloriously overlooked the sea. My parents and I went early in the morning, it was drizzling and the park was completely deserted. Running there, so close to nature, was close to being one of the best feelings in the world. With every breath I took, I could feel my lungs greedily fill itself with the fresh, slightly salty air and it was such a welcome change from the pollution I've gotten used to from living in the city. I've taken plenty of beach holidays but there's something about Australia's beach culture that makes the time we spend at Noose in Brisbane or Portsea in Melbourne top holidays to even Maldives and Bali. I only managed to take two full length outfits shots but every day was pretty much tees, cut-offs and tank dresses. Above are some snapshots of our time there.
