Gertrude & Alice, the super cute cafe bookstore is a little treasure in Bondi. From the most amazing Chai you will taste, to a lovely glass of pinot noir at night. This cosy unique place is filled with books that go to the ceiling, the most delicious organic food, handmade flowers and a chilled out vibe that makes you want to sit and read or work for hours. Whilst writing my first book two summers back I got the opportunity to work part-time in this adorable place. I was surrounded by books, the locals and tourist popping in everyday – it was so delightful and I didn’t for once feel like I was ever working. Now, it’s very exciting to say that ‘Swept away by Wanderlust’ is now selling in the store! which is so surreal! So if your cruising down Hall St, Bondi, Australia – before going down to check the beautiful beach out, visit this gorgeous cafe bookstore and whatever you do make sure you try the vegan brownies – they are out of this world! Also, you might see the lovely super cool Bec who was one of our photgraphers in ‘Swept away by Wanderlust’ Bec comes in now and then to whip up a coffee and was how we met – talking travels and working in Gertrude & Alice!
