Good Morning Byron Bay

I wish I could say it feels good to be home, but right now I am hurting pretty bad from a shameful day of gross overeating. My gluttony knew no bounds earlier today, as I went on a relentless hunt for all the tasty New York foods that you just can't find anywhere else while on the road (like fresh deli sandwiches, warm fluffy bagels, and my personal favorite, a massive pie of hot cheesy pizza)... Anyways, I think that I may have gone a little overboard by polishing off two egg sandwiches, three bagels, and an entire pie of pizza in the past few hours. Because immediately after enjoying my final slice I began to drift into a serious food coma and have since been in a state of total paralysis here on my couch ... You have no idea how difficult it was to pull the phone from my pocket just now, let alone how long it took me to type out this caption with just one finger... But other than that, it sure is good to be back NY 🙏 #vanlife
