PAX Aus – The Journey – Day 2

So Day 2 of Pax was another massive day for me, that again I somehow survived. Barely. I swear, my feet are just about to go on strike. Again, we started the day with another breakfast cooked by Joey. Seriously, one of the best things about this trip so far is having our own personal chef. I can’t wait until he starts doing requests.

So, the day finally arrived. On Thursday, the 26th of October at 4:30am, I woke my amazing wife to give me a lift to the airport so that I could finally attend PAX. And what an amazing first day I have had. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. As many people have told me over the years, it’s not the destination that counts, but the road you take to get there. So let’s start at the beginning of my day. As I mentioned earlier, I woke my gorgeous wife Emma and asked her very nicely to take me...
