PHOTO DIARY #10 HOLIDAY IN THE NETHERLANDS

Another week in the Netherlands that did not go completely to plan. On Friday I traveled to Rotterdam to see my sister and her family. She called us in advance that her baby was sick and that she was home with him, but we were already on the way so we trotted on. The first day everything was great and I had an amazing time. On Saturday, one after another person got SUPER sick, I won’t go into details (eeek nasty!), but it was not fun. Everyone went down except for my strong Mom (she’s amazing). We, therefore, all ended up in bed instead of going out and about. I was planning to take pictures in Rotterdam as well as Kinderdijk, but I don’t think this will happen now. So that is why you are missing a few days and in my photo diary, but there is nothing I could do.

PHOTO DIARY #9 TRAVELING AND THE NETHERLANDS

If you follow me on Twitter or on Instagram then I am sure you must have seen that I am on holidays in the Netherlands woohoo!!. In this photo diary, I will sort of keep you up to date with what I have been doing in the last week. Last week was my travel week ( a 17-hour flight as well as a 7-hour flight) from Sydney to Dusseldorf. I also spend time at my parent’s house in Enschede and towards the end of the week, I traveled to Rotterdam to meet up with my sister and her family. Underneath you will see some photos of these occasions. (Some photos were taken with my iPhone, so the quality is a little lower then you are expected of me, my apologies)

PHOTO DIARY #8 LUNA PARK

This past weekend I wandered over to Luna Park at Milsons Point, Sydney. The park is an amusement attraction and was established in 1935, amazingly it still contains traditional midway games and rides while of course still offering your 21st-century amusements as well.  The older charm that this park offers, the more the modern generation can catch a glimpse of the past.

PHOTO DIARY #7 THE ROCKS, SYDNEY

Even though it was a rainy cold(yes it gets cold in Australia haha!) winters day last Saturday, I still decided to go for a wander through Sydney. I ended up in the oldest part of Sydney called “The Rocks”. The Rocks is a neighborhood of historic laneways in the shadow of Sydney Harbour Bridge. Locals and many tourists mingle at the open-air Rocks Markets, purchasing street food and handmade souvenirs. The area has some of Sydney’s oldest pubs and many of the upscale restaurants have spectacular harbor views. I took my DSLR camera with me, but unfortunately, it was not working, so I had to take pictures with my trusty iPhone. They didn’t turn out too bad – thank goodness, but they would have looked better if they would have been taken with my fancy-pants camera.  Check out my pictures below…

PHOTO DIARY #6 TARONGA ZOO

I love going to the zoo, so I took my fancy-pancy camera with me to take some pictures.  Taronga Zoo is Sydney’s local zoo and can be reached by a 15-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay.  Taronga Zoo cares for over 4000 animals from over 350 species, many of which are threatened. It also offers amazing city views and loads of great picture opportunities, as well as being situated amongst one of Sydney’s most beautiful national parks. This is one place that is sure to impress.  Check out some of my pictures below…
