While in Australia, I was lucky enough to join the BBCers on a writing retreat to Phillip Island.
We stayed in a great house a short walk from the beach.
During the day we worked on papers, chapters, and proposals that we shared with each other for feedback, and during the down time in the evening we got involved in all kinds of activities including great dinners, yoga, walking on the beach after having fish and chips and keeping a look out for small furry animals!
A highlight was going to the Penguin Parade – which is exactly what is sounds like – and seeing some Koalas in the Conservation Centre. And getting lots of writing done as well, of course!
