Simpo's Bells Boost

I am currently in... Margaret River, West Australia.
I woke up at... the Hyatt in Perth.
The first thing I did was... brush my teeth!
I called... nobody ...and we discussed... nothing 'cuz I'm in Australia and don't feel like spending a fortune 😜
For lunch I ate... chicken and rice.
In the afternoon... I plan to go surfing and get some practice at event site.
Training today consisted of... just getting in the water and putting in some time. Been a few days since I surfed.
I got really excited when... I got to the hotel and was able to lay down for a bit.
Today I had to... drive 3 hours to my final destination.
I wish that... traveling wasn't so hard on the body!
One thing I'm missing is... home and my family.
The funniest thing I saw was... just people real stressed traveling.
Before I went to bed I made sure to... brush my teeth again and say I love you to my wife and baby.
Tomorrow, I'm going to... try and find some fun waves and prepare for a good event!
