Morning Coffee Club – 16 October

Yesterday morning we gathered outside in the fresh air for our weekly morning Coffee Club. We chatted all things Byron as well as finding out more about each other and our native countries. We intended playing a game of Uno but instead, got caught up with our chat! IMG_7445

We learned loads of new and exciting information – from our best-known foods (and how to make them the correct way!), to how many people inhabit our homelands. Google was our friend for finding out this particular bit of information… 🙂

I was also very pleasantly surprised to meet our Swiss student Shannon, whose name I immediately recognized – named after our longest river in Ireland – The Shannon! Looking forward to catching up with these guys (and some others who are out of shot) next week for some more interesting chats, facts, games and of course, Tim Tams! 🙂

Summer is definitely on it’s way here in Byron Bay! It was a beautifully warm day so we enjoyed today’s Coffee Club in the sunshine ❤

The Tim Tams had to be eaten very quickly as they were melting in the heat, but luckily the students were happy to help out!

We were all amazed that Sacha has been in Australia one month and this is the first time he’s had Tim Tams?! He now loves them almost as much as the other students and said he’ll be coming back to Coffee Club again next week 🙂

We had lots of fun playing Jenga with questions, until Sacha knocked the tower over and had to do 10 push ups!

Today at Coffee Club we played Jenga with questions!
