Travel Fail: My Honeymoon Hooker in Oz

Sydney proved an amazing starting point for our 2015 honeymoon adventure (after a 4 day stop over in Dubai, of course). We were on the other side of the world and loving life. Four days in and we had ticked all the tourist boxes; beaches, Blue Mountains, kangaroos, koalas, Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, boat trips and of course, Sydney Opera House (see Travel Fail: Sydney Opera House – whoops! Yep, we kinda make a habit of this kinda thing over here). We were Sydney-satisfied and hungry to see more of Australia. It was our last night and we had decided to stay in, pack our bags, order a takeaway and sort ourselves out a hooker for the night.

People pick up on insecurities on the first date – especially if it’s someone you’re very interested in. The first guy I was genuinely interested in from the online dating world was Pandora’s Box. Yes, I just nicknamed him Pandora’s Box. To my friends, I actually call him Pandora (insert guys name here) but like I said, for sake of humiliation, I’ll use the nickname my co-worker gave him. I was pulling an all-nighter for school when I got a message from him asking if I liked watching hockey and he commented on my music taste, which is excellent, if I must say.
