Ready To Get Rad

February 17, 2016

Well here we are, officially immersed in the blogging world! Lots of googling, trial and error and many hours spent with square eyes has got us here, but hey we’ve started and they say that’s often the hardest part.

In early January, while we were both in our separate caravans on separate sides of the bay, the power that is social media drew us both towards a little old instagram account called @donttellsummer and their new conference/festival/extravaganza #RadLivin which was to be held in Sydney, on a weekend in February.

#RadLivin sells itself as “A unique event made to inspire you to do what you love now. Speakers, live Music and rad like-minded people coming together to get inspired, share their dreams and celebrate livin’ life to the raddest.”

I don’t know who told who first, but immediately we knew it was an opportunity not to be missed. Soon enough we found out it was being held in Sydney, which at first came as a bit of a shock to us Melbournians, but thankfully we both agreed it was a rare chance that neither kilometers nor money could hold us back from!

#Radlivin is playing host to a selection of inspiring individuals, such as surf photographer Cait Miers, founders of Pedestrian TV Oscar & Mike, Editor in Chief of Tidal Magazine Jess Abraham and lots more.
Inspirational speakers, live tunes by one of our faves Ziggy Alberts, cold bevs and hundreds of like-minded #rad people sharing one big space. What more could you want?

This was the push we needed. We emptied our piggy banks, searched under couch cushions and in the laundry for gold coins (yes, we may have the dream but we don’t got the moolah, especially in Jan when the beach is calling us!) and rustled up the money for a ticket each.

With that purchase came the motivation to start getting stuck into it. We already knew what we wanted to do, but we didn’t want to go to #RadLivin without having something to show off ourselves, so it became our goal to have our blog and our vision established before then.

It is now the 18th of February and we are just 2 days out till the big day! Sacrificed Saturdays, and vodka cranberry cut backs brought us our plane ticket and our accommodation (thank god for tiger airways and backpackers hey!) and we are almost ready to get on our merry way.

On Saturday we are hoping we to schmooze the day away with the speakers and performers and see if any of their talent and success rubs off on us! As well as networking and hopefully making a few new friends with the other attendees.

We will be blogging about #RadLivin and our Sydney trip so stay tuned on here and on our instagram! You’ll get all the juicy details.

Sometimes you’ve got to just take a risk so you can get to where you want to go, even if you don’t know exactly where that is, and even if you’re broke.

We are not financial advisors, but hey why not buy the ticket and see what happens. Work a little harder, save your pennies and see where your ticket, (or equivalent) takes you.
