Northern sun, southern fun

What a crazy week it's been!

Hey, guys. Just wanted to catch you up on where I've been since I got back from Carnival in Rio.

Last week I escaped the cold and rain of Sydney to go north to one of my favourite spots — Noosa. It's just so beautiful up there. The weather was awesome, and I got to do something I haven't done since I was a ten-year-old school boy in Penrith ... cable water ski! It's a total blast, and if you haven't tried it before, check it out the next time you're on the Sunshine Coast.

We had such a blast with the staff that we ended up inviting five of the guys to come back to our hire-house for a big barbeque and party. The rest of the time was spent sitting at the surf club watching the waves roll in. Bliss.

Back in Sydney, I caught up with some of the funniest blokes I've ever met at the Sydney Comedy Festival. I got to hang out with The Umbilical Brothers, and we went for Chinese in Darling Harbour. Innocuous, right? Not with these guys. Someone did an impression of a velociraptor (think Jurassic Park) that left me in stitches for 24 hours. It was unbelievable. Later, I met up with Wil Anderson, the legendary Aussie comic, who made me do a stand-up act at the Enmore Theatre to an empty house. Now I know why I'm a presenter and not a comedian!

The week ended at the MTV Video Music Awards, which were super fun. As you can probably guess, it was a knackering couple of days. But I'm not complaining!

Check out Getaway this Thursday before the long weekend to catch up with the latest. Cheers, guys!
