Guest Blog: By Jordy Zonaras
Being from NSW, I was a little apprehensive about heading up to Byron in the first week (the Qld week). I went up there only knowing the 5 girls I was travelling with and another small group staying 5 minutes away. Any apprehension was quickly dissolved when we entered Byron Central Apartments. We were greeted by several groups of kids from Sydney schools with whom we shared a common patio. The openness of the apartments made it easy to meet new people, and we literally had to walk out our front door to join a party.
Nights were mainly spent getting to know each other over highly competitive games of 'beer pong' and days were spent catching up on sleep and enjoying the sunshine on Byron's main beach. We also had a Woollies nearby, so we would sit down to a nice gourmet home-made dinner before beginning the big nights.
My schoolies trip to Byron was a perfect way to celebrate the end of school and the memories (while slightly fuzzy) will make me giggle to myself for many years to come. I can't believe it's over! Toolies, anyone?
