They say there’s nothing like a quick dash away to recharge the inner vibe or infuse a little light into the humdrums which was exactly what the ‘SpannerMan’ and I did just recently when we grabbed a super cheap hang-onto-the-wing flight to Sydney for the weekend and delved into the beautiful lights and sounds of the Vivid Sydney Festival. Originally Vivid Sydney – the festival of light, sounds and ideas - began as a Smart light festival for energy efficiency back in 2009 and quickly grew in size with the 2015 festival drawing more than 1.5mil crowds to wow at the light spectacular. Over the last couple of years I'd been aiming to come, but always found myself at other ends of the country - like in Darwin or Townsville, or one year, out of the country in Turkey.
So eager to visit Sydney after almost 8years of last being there and in true form of my bravura style of plan-nothing travel, we -or I should say I - didn’t check the calendar when booking, and being a dutiful little worker-bee, clicked on the sparrow-fart return flight only to discover after paying for it, it was a public holiday that day.
Hello! I'm Kerry

A daughter of the gypsies and the wife of a workaholic, I'm forever wondering 'What's over there?' and devising ways to squeeze through the barbed-wire fence of small-business ownership responsibilities and every-day life tangles to discover it.
