FRIDAY TUNES BY RACHEL
Describe to us your ultimate dream day
No alarm, warm cuppa in the morning sun, surf all day, yum food & a deeeep sleep. Maybe a massage too
If you were an animal, what animal would you be?
Hmmm, somehow I always collect elephant related things on my travels – prints, paintings, little clay or brass figurines – so maybe they are my spirit animal
Staple healthy meal?
Tempeh, sauerkraut, stir fried greens in lots of garlic, roast pumpkin, and my fave herb parsley – always on top of everything. YUM
What is a skill you would like to learn, and why?
Astrology or the piano, both are a little romantic and mysterious
Favourite surf memory?
Finding a secret Moroccan point break after days of driving and searching maps, with only 2 loved ones, waves kilometres long, jello legs, freshly caught fish for dinner under the most ridiculous starry sky I have ever seen. What dreams are made of!
Have you read any good books lately?
I’m currently reading Perfume by Patrick Suskind, it’s a classic but it’s pretty twisted
Are you more of an introvert or an extrovert?
What movie title best describes your life?
Slow and steady. Is that a movie? If it is that’s me. Maybe I am an elephant after all.
If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you spend that extra time doing?
Learning, reading, surfing, laying in the sun, having deep conversations with friends
Rach’s life motto?
Dory is singing ‘just keep swimming’ in my head
