LODGING REVIEW | ADINA APARTMENTS, BONDI BEACH

LODGING REVIEW | ADINA APARTMENTS, BONDI BEACH

Located in the heart of Bondi Beach lies a small apartment hotel, Adina. Located at amidst bars, cafes, restaurants and boutique shops in Sydney’s most famous beach neighborhood. Just minutes walk from the beach lies a 2 story – small, contemporary hotel equipped with all the necessities that you require for a mini-break from life.

Making my way to Adina was super simple and straightforward. Hopping on the 333 bus line from Circular Quay conveniently drops you off at Bondi beach. From there it is an easy 5-minute walk to the hotel.

The reception area is very modern and open. With several couches, computer and access to the pool, it is very welcoming. A minimalist color palette, with soft lines and a decorative stone wall, gives a modern, but not cold feel. Varying room categories fit all types of travelers, even those who travel with children or with other couples as they offer inconnected rooms.

MY FAVORITE PODCASTS

MY FAVORITE PODCASTS

I am one of those people who stubbornly refuse to try something new. My dad had been trying to get me to listen to podcasts from when it first came out. But no, I didn’t think I would like it. Only a few months ago a friend of mine convinced me to try it, and I have been hooked ever since. The great upside of this is that I literally have hundreds of podcasts to listen too.

Now, this is going to sound strange, but I love murder mysteries and true crime. So the podcasts that I listen too are all related to that subject in some way.

In this post, I will show you some of my favorite podcasts I listen to regularly and that has me hooked.

MINI GUIDE TO BONDI BEACH, SYDNEY

MINI GUIDE TO BONDI BEACH, SYDNEY

I needed to escape the hustle and bustle of busy North  Sydney the other weekend. It has been hectic at work and I needed a quick break before the summer season started. The beauty of living in Sydney means that there are loads of great weekend break destinations within a few hours.

So this mini-break I decided I wanted to go to the beach, especially because it was going to be 32 degrees and I needed some chill time.

So that is what I did, I booked a hotel and off I went.

I wandered the streets of Bondi, watched a sunset and enjoyed some time at the beach. If you are interested in going on a weekend to Bondi Beach then check out my post underneath.

PHOTO DIARY #13 CRICKET – AUSTRALIA VS INDIA

PHOTO DIARY #13 CRICKET – AUSTRALIA VS INDIA

A Dutchy, Kiwi and Canadian walk into a cricket stadium. Sounds like the start of a dad joke, doesn’t it. But it happened last Sunday. I have never been to a proper game before and I was always curious what it would be like. I am Dutch, so I did not grow up watching cricket. And it is a lot more entertaining then what most people realize.

So when I got the opportunity to go to a T20 game I was down.

Australia was playing the final game against India at the Sydney cricket ground and my boss had some tickets left.

It was a great game, but Australia lost. It was such a great experience anyways. The Indian fans are so hooked to the game, they truly support their team. Every wicket or catch they would go MENTAL. It was great to see.

Underneath are just some pictures of this great evening.
