What’s better than standing on such golden coastlines? Flying a plane over them, of course. More on that later. at Perth, Western Australia
If your dreams of the future do not scare you until you turn pale like the clouds here then they’re probably as small and as commonplace as all the buildings you see in the surroundings. And someone will beat you to the top. at Shanghai, China
It’s amazing. Just amazing. The paradoxical duality of his vitality. A drop of free water in its prime. Eccentric in personality, congruently nonpareil in action. Fundamentally unchanging and superficially metamorphosing, or the other way round, fundamentally transforming and superficially inertial? It’s anyone’s guess.
Equally intriguing: the only other vehicle in which I can legally exercise command responsibility other than an aircraft is a bike. at Shanghai, China
So, did I break a record for the earliest university acceptance? I got an offer from the University of Sydney on Monday!! So looking forward to devoting the next few years of my life to a country I love so much, to study what I love, and continue flying part-time in the beautiful skies above Australia. Let’s go guys. It’s only awesomeness from here on out. Next stop, God willing, Sydney. at Australia
First university application submitted. Henceforth starts the journey to bring myself back to the place I love. Psst, @australia that’s you. at Australia
Everything will be oak-kay 💥
Final lap. 10th and final year in Shanghai. If your dreams of the future don’t scare you, they’re probably not big enough. Coming along for the ride? at At Home
Months of studying, 52 hours in the air, 1600 L of aviation fuel burned, and lots of money spent. It’s a painful thought to the casual observer. But now I can fly planes with passengers as pilot-in-command, something many dream of but never come close to achieving. Yet there’s still more to come, onwards and upwards we go 🚀 Isn’t it just a bit exhilarating? If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough. at Perth, Western Australia
•What are you searching for? Have you dropped something?
•Yes, my hopes and dreams. Have you seen them anywhere? at Perth, Western Australia
The thing about Rottnest is that there’s literally thousands of natural wonders equally as awesome as this ^ on just one small island. Proof? 🙄 The quokka population itself is composed of 12,000 of those divinely-crafted cuteness bombs from heaven. at Rottnest Island
Universities remind me of the f-word. Shocking expletive to throw around once you comprehend what said word entails, yet it rolls off the tongue fully uninhibited in contemporary parlance. The future. There, I said it. at The University of Western Australia
Nightmare dressed like a daydream (boys edition) at Perth, Western Australia
Your classroom has a view of the city? That’s cute. Hold my beer. at Perth, Western Australia
Stairway to heaven
Best part is, I get to fly over this place for flying training! at Rottnest Island
If you’ve been following my IG stories or other platforms you’d know that I’ve been flying planes a whole lot recently to get a pilot’s license. This involves 55 hrs of flying plus another 230 hrs in my university years for further licenses. It’s great fun and there’s nothing in the world like it! I’d love to share on IG, VSCO, etc but first I am contractually required to qualify a few items:
•photos are taken with a preprogrammed GoPro, ie. no touching the camera in flight
•photos taken with my phone are whilst on the ground (like this one)
•nothing ever comes close to having any chance of compromising the safety of a flight
*With that out of the way, I’m happy to start sharing 😄 Take care my friends, with love from Western Australia 🇦🇺 at Jandakot Airport
Selfie with the happiest animal on earth. This has been in my dreams for a long time. In the turbulence of this past year I have forgotten about this dream in the entropy but remembered the day I arrived in 🇦🇺. As I clicked the shutter it dawned on me on how lucky I am, as a 17 year old, to have literally all of my dreams realised, from big things like flying, travelling, and playing onstage to small things like taking this photo. So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. Have faith, strive forward, and one day, you’ll walk smiling, a glass of Somersby apple cider in hand, the madness behind you, and something beautiful in front. For me, it was the quokka ❤️ #quokka @rottnestislandwa @westernaustralia @australia at Rottnest Island
Coffee, tea, or me?🔥 Some say my eyebrows make me look like I’m always pissed so I compensate by smiling more.
Departing on a 75-day holiday tomorrow (though this past month has been a holiday de facto). Up-to-date feed at vsco.co/alberttee172 (my IG lags weeks behind). Peace out dear friends 👊 at Seesaw Coffee
The stunning sunset beckons for a photo at this posh bar sur le toit. Thinks to self, “hold it tightly...it’d be a sin to spill this fine Bordelais wine. And God knows how much this glass costs. They’ll crucify me if I drop it...so hold it tightly, use all your fingers, and interlock them! Tighter! Hang on, are those people over there judging me by how I hold my glass? Americans paying homage to my shirt? Or is it because I am really good looking as always? Is the hair on poi...” *completely forgets about the camera*

GF: Did you buy those skinny jeans on sale?
BF: Yes, why?
GF: Because in my room they would be 100% off.
