  • #dawgsdownunder Blog: A Day at Byron Bay
    January 14, 2017
    We started our morning with a drive from the hotel in Surfer’s Paradise to Byron Bay (which was about an hour and a half from where we were staying).
  • #dawgsdownunder Blog: Surfin' AUS
    January 13, 2017
    We awoke in Surfer’s Paradise excited to see if the town would live up to its name. Like always, the first indicator of how our day would go was breakfast. While it was no Travelodge Sydney, Vibe got the job done. After breakfast, we drove to the beach, where very stylish blue rash guards were distributed. Katie and Lily ended up in children’s larges and probably looked the best of all of us. We took our boards down to the beach, where we divided into two groups: those who had surfed before and those who hadn’t. In the latter group, we looked to our instructor – face coated in zinc and all – for instructions on how to get on the board and stand up.

    January 11, 2017
    After consecutive days of spectacular Sydney breakfasts, we had high hopes that our Brisbane hotel would treat us just the same. Luckily, we were not let down. It was no Travelodge Sydney, but the Ibis Brisbane had an array of options for a tasty first meal of the day, including cheese-filled sausages (!!!) and delicious watermelon, the team’s favorite source of hydration, besides electro-mix, of course.

    January 10, 2017
    After some late night birthday cake fun, courtesy of Chaney, the 6am start to our final day in Sydney would prove a challenge for some.

  • #dawgsdownunder Blog: Game 2
    January 09, 2017
    We woke up and had a lovely breakfast at the hotel again, enjoying our sleep-in before leaving with Conor to tour the Sydney opera house.

  • #dawgsdownunder Blog: A Cliff Walk to Remember
    January 08, 2017

    January 07, 2017
    We woke up to yet another sad and raining morning. However, this time was different. Spirits were not low because it was #gameday.

  • #dawgsdownunder Blog: Taking in the Sights
    January 05, 2017
    After finally arriving “down under” and promptly getting some coffee (which is, by the way, AMAZING in Australia) we loaded the bus and headed towards Sydney’s famous Harbor Bridge. Our tour guide Conor led the charge of all 25 YFH affiliates in our matching navy garb across the Harbor Bridge. We looked out over the Sydney Harbor and the view instantly made the 34 hours of travel worth it.
