Oyster Fashion: Valentina Sykes x Gavriel Maynard

Byron Bay road trip!

Wake up. Taxi to airport. Arrive at airport. Take shit. Leave phone in toilet. Stolen by child. Call airport security. No help. No phone. Board flight. "Experiencing technical difficulties folks". Two-hour delay. Land in Byron Bay. Forget iPod on plane. Half an hour wait. Get iPod back. Battery dead. Picked up from airport. Starts raining. Arrive at farm. First location. Shoot. Valentina. Smiles, dogs, rain, tractors. Dinner — thai, vegetarian, fish and chips. Cigarettes inside. Sleep. Too hot! Cigarettes outside. See frog. Hops. Sleep. Sunrise. Breakfast. Smoothies. Second Location. Kombis. Backpackers vs police. "All backpackers have 30 seconds to get out of town". Change location. Forrest. Snakes. Flowers. Bananas. Valentina. Stomach ache. Drive to airport. Tears. Flights. Bed. Zzz.
