As anyone who lives on Sydney’s Northern Beaches will attest, the commute to / from work is a take-no-prisoners bitch: with average speeds of 18 kph in bulk traffic, they don’t call it the ‘Hell 90’ for nada.
For most people, it’s an unavoidably shit start to every. single. workday.
For Justin Hemmes, it’s a problem you can make go away by dropping a few hundred thou on a seaplane that’ll allow you to completely bypass the peak-hour fuckery to arrive at the office stress-free and in record time #wtflifegoals.
The Merivale tycoon recently purchased a light aircraft to cut down his morning commute from the Vaucluse home he shares with baby mama Kate Fowler to his latest in-the-works hospo project The Newport from 1hr 34mins++++ to 6 mins.
6 MINS FROM VAUCLUSE TO NEWPORT IS THE DREAM PEOPLE.
Hemmes’ seaplane takes off from outside his home, and drops him right near the entrance to the new Merivale venue – the 1st phase of which will open in the next few weeks – and other members of his team been hitching a ride to work, too, ‘cos like you wouldn’t.
Here’s a few of them en-route, waving at all the schmucks down below (not really, but we so would).
Just look at those views, I mean really.
PEDESTRIAN.TV spoke to a Merivale spokesperson, who confirmed Hemmes got so fkn over the hellish Beaches commute that he made the purchase about a month ago.
“Justin moves around a lot,” we were told. “Vaucluse to Newport in six minutes – it’s a no brainer!”
… if you’re a mijillionaire.
