JUST SNAPPED @littleswallowchinadoll

Bowral without babies

In another life, Ms R and I partied in Shanghai, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Russia, just to name a few places. 

The Press Shop, Bowral

In this life, we both have babies. But before Ms R popped her beautiful little person out, we decided to squeeze in a little girls trip - one with far less partying and far more relaxing.

We headed to Bowral in a new car Ms R couldn't drive, which was an adventure in itself. And it turns out going on a road trip when you're still breastfeeding (and therefore have to express milk while you're away) with a pregnant chick is a little bit less wild than you'd expect. I know, who'd have thought?

But we had an awesome time, from taking the piss out of the dire accommodation we were in (sorry Peppers, all show from the outside, completely basic and rubbish on the inside), to chowing down on delicious pub dinners, brunches and afternoon tea.

From wandering through the gorgeous shops and getting a-ma-zing spa treatments, to experiencing probably the most bizarre meal we're ever had at Biota Dining including a slightly hysteria inducing moment where we couldn't work out whether we were missing our cutlery or supposed to use our hands.

Sadly I think Biota suffered from massive expectation build up but failed to deliver (a) pregnancy appropriate dishes for Ms R, despite having been warned multiple times, and (b) normal wait staff, instead of a super intense, slightly eccentric man who really really loved himself and his hair.

Despite our complaints, we actually loved Bowral and chilling out together. And since Ms R assures me she now has full command of the car, we might even attempt another getaway with a little more champagne soon...
