Coffee Lounge! December 6

Being such a hot day in Byron Bay today, a hot coffee wasn’t too appealing! Instead we had a nice cold beer and tried to eat the TimTams before they all melted!

img_1329

While enjoying the beers we played a round of Lexis Jenga and learnt a little bit more about each other from the questions on each tile.

 

For example, we found out that Francesco’s dream holiday is to be on the island of Bora Bora, preferably enjoying the company of 17 women! We also discovered Pauline’s most embarrassing moment was when she arrived at school for what she thought was a normal day only to realise she (and her mum) had totally forgotten about her school camp leaving that very morning! There was also a fairly unanimous agreement that if any of us had a billion dollars, it would be spent on travelling the world.

 

New Starters! December 5

Welcome to the 16 new starters at Lexis Byron Bay this week!

Cider Tasting! December 1

Today we sampled some Australian ciders. It was a perfect activity for the hot weather on the first day of Summer!

img_1205

The ciders were brewed all over Australia, from the Adelaide Hills (The Hills Cider Company) to Sydney (5 Seeds) and a couple of local ones from Byron Bay (Treehouse Cider and Wild Cider).

img_1202

Everyone had a different favourite, which wasn’t surprising given the broad range of tastes and flavours in these ciders.

img_1201

From a dry, crisp apple to a sweeter pear and an infused flavour of native Finger Lime with apple, there was a cider for everyone!
