It’s kinda interesting how long it’s taken me to post about our stay around Sydney.
Maybe it’s the crazy traffic and unnavigable city pattern that left a bitter taste in my mouth.
Anyways, all in all we had a good time, got a lot of mundane stuff done and still enjoyed what Sydney has to offer.
We made our home in Freshwater, which is part of the Northern Beaches and lies about 17 km north/east of Sydney.
It was definitely a cute community lined by golden beaches, cool restaurants and close to nature.
We did spend quite some time driving in and out of Sydney, commuting to our doctor visits and running errands. For the touristy thing we visited Sydney Opera House, which is a must see. I mean isn’t it incredible, how in the 1950’s a man from Denmark constructed a sculpture on Sydney Harbor and literally changed the course of twentieth century architecture?
We enjoyed strolling Darling Harbour, riding the Ferris Wheel and as a personal highlight, taking the ferry to Manly.
It was so sweet to gain a different perspective from the Harbour while basking in the sunshine, wind blown and happy.
Newtown, with its hip vibe, cool shops and amazing restaurants kept drawing us in and we paid a visit to the Golden Lotus, with it’s Saigon gone vegan super delicious cuisine more than once.
A visit to Australia’s capital wouldn’t have been complete without a stroll along Bondi Beach.
Checking out Icebergs and strolling the Bondi to Bronte walk was pretty epic.
When we had enough from the big city, traffic and rush, we ventured out to The Blue Mountains. What an amazing day we had there. There’s quite a bit to do and see including marveling at the three sisters, visiting Katoomba Scenic World, where we rode the world’s steepest passenger railway, skywayed our way over steep canyons and went on pretty amazing bushwalks.
After two weeks, we made our way up north towards our next stop.
Stay tuned for more Aussie Adventures ✌🏽
