Lara Lain left her glitzy career in the media behind in January 2014 to go and work abroad. She bought a one way ticket to Thailand…and ended up going around the world twice, visiting over 10 countries, working in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and volunteering in Brazil for the FIFA World Cup on route.
1. A sunrise like no other
Coming up over the cliffs of North Bondi, it is never the same and always beautiful. Pinks, blues, oranges – every day I want to be a part of it.
2. The best running track in the world
Famous, fresh sand instead of a pavement? I know where I would rather be clocking up my miles.
3. My ideal body
To be honest I am really grateful for my body, especially now I’m super fit. But there’s no denying seeing straight up 11/10’s everywhere makes me think ”Wow! She looks amazing!” about 65 times before breakfast.
4. My future husband(s)
As the girls are perfect, so are the guys and no one is complaining about either. Mornings always feel better after seeing your ideal man on a postcard sprint past.
People of all ages, shapes and frames are working out. Running, walking, boot camping, yoga’ing, surfing with dolphins!. Bondi Beach promotes a healthy lifestyle and I really, really love it for that.
6. Paws you wish you could call your own
Big ones, little ones, puppies in fur jackets – dogs are spreading the joy wherever you look.
Every so often you catch the eye of a delighted stranger or hear ”isn’t it beautiful?”. Those on Bondi Beach for sunrise are there to truly appreciate life. And what an amazing life we can lead!
