AVIAN TIMETRAVELER: A DAY IN SYDNEY WITH THE WORLD’S MOST UNINTERESTING TOURISTS


“Your dream life is being lived, even if you’re not the one living it. -Unknown”

Not every trip is fraught with end over end adventure. Not for us anyway. The situation: you and your best friend are former Army pilots. You’re out of the military now, one of you owns a watch company and you both spend so much of your free time traveling the world that it makes your other friends wonder ‘what really goes on with you two?’. Well, If people don’t wonder about you, are you really even friends? Nope. Sound like you? No? Too bad. It is today.

We made a promise that we would explore the planet as much as we could in our post-Army days, to destinations that are a little more…well, green, and we’ve kept that promise.  Sydney stuck out to us over the course of this globetrotting experience and an annual visit became a formal ritual. Every year, we take a trip (sometimes 3) to our favorite beachside landing spot and proceed to be the laziest, most boring tourists on the planet. It’s our vacation. We’ll spend it however we choose to.

Here’s a lazy Sydney day in 10 photos (technically 9 and a cover, because I know some Lieutenant somewhere will point that out). I hope this serves as a mini-reminder that there is such a thing as ‘Life After Army’. And it’s really fun. Cheers.
