LOCATION : Sydney, Australia SOFTIE: Davo Dog
It’s a glorious day for sailing, don’t you think? There’s nothing more exciting than the moment you set off on a new adventure. I hope your imagination is conjuring up as much promise and mischief as mine.
And so our journey Around the World in 80 Toys begins.
Sydney’s sparkling harbour is slipping over the horizon as we speak. But don’t worry, we’re not leaving all of Sydney behind. Allow me to introduce you to Davo. He’s a surfing dog. The salty little bugger is frightfully rough round the edges but I’m told he’s a “good bloke”. We picked him up in Manly, on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Davo loves a good yarn and has plenty of tall tales about surfing with sharks. He’s meeting a mate in South America and we’re headed that way so…
Oh, I haven’t told you where we’re going yet, have I?
Well, right now we’re heading East across the Tasman. I’ll be charting our progress on the map at the top right of this blog. What’s that? Oh yes, we really are going all the way around the world. Now I’m not going to give you all the details of our route just yet. That’s a surprise. But I can tell you that our next stop is New Zealand. I wonder who we might meet there…
Ahoy! Have you seen the sock toys?
