I don’t like to fly. I also don’t like to drive on freeways, boat in shark infested waters or walk around some questionable neighborhoods that are uncomfortably close to our home. I know, as far as the various modes of travel go, I’m clearly very open-minded (in my defense, this bubble is quite cozy). I still hope to see the world, it just may take a high-speed, underwater train or you know, some finger-snapping magic. One place I’ve actually always wanted to travel is Australia, but I joke that it may never happen because hello, it’s a twenty hour flight. TWENTY. It’s difficult for me to get through a three hour flight, so I really can’t fathom something nearly seven times longer. But hey, I can always cruise there, right? Even if it takes a month…on a boat…in my flippy floppies. If I ever do muster up the courage to make the flight, I’m going to enlist (beg) Georgia Hobart to go with me. After all, she is a pro at the whole globetrotting thing, hopping between Melbourne and New York as she grows her incredible empire of handmade footwear, Hobes. The collection is supremely classic (just like its founding fashionista) and your tootsies will be thanking you with every step. And the tots collection? Don’t even get me started.
