Huzzah! I can’t believe I actually managed to post another within a week!
I’m actually pretty sick right now but can’t seem to get to sleep at the moment, so hopefully writing this will do the trick. Anyway, as some of you may have seen from my instagram, Ashley and I celebrated our one year anniversary in March!
To celebrate we did something out of the ordinary and went to Mt Dandenong for some nature.
Thankfully we didn’t do anything that required me to start trekking up some grassy hills (phew). Instead I had to suffer endless torture of Ashley’s crazy speeding up and around the mountains before we finally reached our destination..
The Cuckoo! A German-esque buffet that Ashley loved and visited plenty as a child.
The place was gorgeous and although I was actually unfortunately sick then too (my immune system sucks) the food was delicious. But of course, my wonderful German boyfriend does not care for food first, he cares for ..German beer. I actually tried some of it and it tasted way nicer than some other beers I’ve happened to taste before.
After our fill, we ventured further up the mountain (on minimal petrol) to explore Olinda and Sky High.
It was actually pretty late at this point so nothing much was open, but it was still fun to roam through their ‘Secret Gardens’ and alike. We also managed to watch the sunset from Sky High which was pretty romantic, if you choose to ignore a strange guy who looked like he was high(at Sky High haha) sleeping on the grass near us. Ahem.
So after having to endure Ashley speeding down the mountain again (sigh) we decided on the whim to go to Rollerama – as it was near and it was something I frequented as a child a lot! Man. What a mistake that was.
So Ashley didn’t know how to rollerblade. No biggy, right? I imagined those romantic movies where couples skate together clumsily but lovingly, yeah? Nope. I didn’t seem to realise that those movies always seem to have the guy teaching/helping the girl, and if it was the other way around …the guy was not a whole foot taller than you. I was too short and too weak to even attempt to support or teach him. SIGH. There goes that little romantic scene…
All in all, our anniversary was jam packed and pretty awesome in my opinion.
And Ashley is a pretty amazin’ boyfriend ♥
