Well I’ve been back in WA for about 5 or 6 days now.. I arrived to the cool weather of Perth on the 6th of September and left the next morning for the warmer weather of Broome and some quality time with my family.. lots of photos.. short videos.. mostly by my new film makers in the making.. Taj (3yrs old) and Keegan (7yrs old) ..hilarious.. we rode camels on the beach for my Birthday and had a delicious lunch at Zanders on Cable beach in Broome.. Seafood galore!! I was spoilt in the most wonderful ways by my family.. taken out for lunches and dinners.. coffees.. spending time playing with the kids.. my gorgeous nephews and getting pampered with my sister and my mum! at kiva! very nice!.. I love Broome, it’s laid back feel and it was such a nice way to come home to the relaxed pace and the beautiful landscape of our north west.. I soaked in the blue blue skies, the turquise waters, the white sand and the red earth.. such vivid colours.. and amazing boab and mango trees.. and now I’m back in Perth ready to catch up with all my friends and family here.. and do some awesome shows with my BAnd!! I’ll be finishing off the final touches of my EP in the next few days.. then sending it off to print! very exciting!! off to the doc tomorrow to try and find a cure for this persistent cold.. and then I’ll be good as gold’ 🙂 x p
I received a lovely review from Bodie at Matso’s Broome gig! check it out here.. http://www.matsos.com.au/blog/prita-grealy/
I had a great 10 days in Kos, Greece! How lucky am I that I get to play on a Greek Island and enjoy the beaches and sunshine during the day!? I have to pinch myself sometimes to see if this life is real!! I played 7 nights in a row at the Hamam bar – which (is where Kristian fjellstad plays every other night!!) and is a big outdoor under the stars bar in Kos on Bar St.. I got to meet so many lovely people from Italy, Spain, England, Germany, Holland, Norway, France, Finland, Israel and Switzerland!! Amazing!! I look forward to meeting these new friends in their own countries too, when I tour there!! 🙂 I am always up for ideas if you know somewhere great for an acoustic solo artist to play you can email me here firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below and I will follow it up! 🙂
I also had the pleasure of having a few days holiday with my boyfriend and we went to turkey for his Birthday!! Had a great lunch over the water, feeding the fish!! And the waiters came out and sang happy birthday in English and Turkish! Great surprise!! Lol.. That same night the lovely audience at hamam got to hear all about it and when he arrived they all sang him happy birthday too!! 🙂 good times!!
I caught up with some great friends and made some new ones!! Had two amazing visits to the natural thermal hot springs.. one at sunset and one at 2Am in the morning!! Both times amazing.. Star bathing under the moon and counting shooting stars!! Brilliant!!
