 Story/Theme Ideas

Joy of cooking
Exploring places with my childhood buddies - camp cove, nelson park - jumping off rocks into the ocean, first taste of independence and exploring the world by your own steam  
Staying at georges house and watching kung fu/bruce lee movies and taking sweets from his dad’s mini market (where they lived)
Daintree Rainforest with Sarah, the many levels of it - like a super dense city - Tokyo
