I met Victoria a while back on Myspace, I can't remember now how long ago.
But I guess it was long enough ago that when we finally met up in person whilst I was visiting my parents in Queensland we talked as though we'd known each other for years.
Despite having worked a hectic weekend at Wasabi Restaurant as part of the Noosa Food & Wine Festival, Victoria drove down to Mooloolaba to meet me, where I was visiting friends from England who were in the area for a wedding.
Victoria, Julie, Jason* and myself had an enjoyable afternoon talking, laughing and drinking at a cafe on the Esplanade, then relocated to the Surf Club to have a few more drinks with friends of Julie and Jason's as the sun went down.
A little while later Julie & Jason headed off for a curry dinner and Victoria whisked me off in the dark to her place in Noosa for a lovely mushroom risotto, and to meet her cheeky cockatiels, Ed and Freud.
Originally from Birmingham, Victoria came to Australia for love, but has stuck around long after that love ended. When not fulfilling the role of a charming waitress at a local Japanese restaurant, Victoria is a philosophy student and has also recently taken to creating a series of daily photographic mementos.
*unfortunately i was too busy nattering with julie & jason to grab my camera out and immortalise them in pixels for this project. must rectify that when next i'm in england!
