Today I met a fellow writer face to face. We both vie for the travel blog of the week.
She had messaged me saying she was coming up to the Gold Coast from Melbourne and could we meet. My Portuguese class is on Mondays in the city so I suggested we meet for a coffee after class.
She caught the train directly from the Coast to Brisbane City, and we met at Extract Coffee. I thought we’d like each other since we both love travelling, but I didn’t know just how much!
We talked for almost 5 hours nonstop. The coffee shop closed, and we were still chatting. And not just about where we’ve been–about everything!
Children, grandchildren, what we studied at Uni, what languages we speak, our ancestors, the Astra-Zeneca vaccination, and where we plan to travel to next.
