Another weekend, another festival. I could get used to this Aussie lifestyle. I rocked up at the Maleny Music Weekend and asked if they could use a last minute volunteer. Four seconds later I was dancing in my flower dress to the funky Balkan beats of The Unusual Suspects, making sweet cocktails, signing up for a free volunteer massage and secretly falling in love with The Rusty Datsuns. On cosy festivals like these, you meet nothing but interesting characters. Like the lady with the bird on her head and Purpelina, a woman who believes in the power of purple. No need to say I blended in perfectly with my freshly bought wedding dress and an insanely big smile on my face.
