BEST PLACE TO SEE KANGAROOS IN THE BLUE MOUNTAINS

You have hopped on a plane to Australia to see all the amazing sights that this country has to offer. You have been on the road for 2 weeks and you ended up in Sydney to spend your last couple of days in this pretty amazing city. BUT… You haven’t seen any kangaroos! This happened to a friend of mine who had flown all the way from the Netherlands to spend Christmas and new years in Australia. I wanted to make sure that they did not leave Australia without having seen the local wildlife, so I asked around and was told about this amazing place. We took our chances, hopped in our rental and drove up to Glenbrook National Park. Here is what happened next.

AUSTRALIA’S ICONIC ANIMALS IN SYDNEY CBD

If you are planning a trip to Sydney and you are a visitor from overseas, then you can’t really leave Australia without having seen some of the countries famous animals. If a trip to Taronga Zoo is too long (it will take up most of your day) but you would still like to see (or even pat) some icons, then I suggest you pop into Sydney Wildlife zoo in Darling Harbor. It is home to different species of Kangaroos, Koala’s, a massive crocodile and several different types of reptiles. In this post, I will show you some of these adorable animals and I will give you some basic information on this zoo.

CHASING THE STARS | BALMORAL BEACH, SYDNEY

I found a new hobby. Am I good at it? Heck no. Do I have the right equipment for it? Nope. (Canon, if you want to help a blogger out, let me know) But damn, I have fun doing it. I am talking about astrophotography. I was invited by my friend Kim the other day, she is taking a photography course and had to do some astrophotography in order to pass the year. So she was kind enough to invite me and I eagerly tagged along. I ended up really loving it. Even though it was cloudy so the stars there were not out in full force. I also had found that I changed the setting the wrong way. Where I initially had the correct but then changed them into the wrong settings. (Lesson learned for next time) Anywho, Underneath are some of my pictures…

CHILLIN AT BONDI BEACH

I know I have been posting a lot about Bondi and Bondi Beach lately, and I apologize for that. This will be my last post on Bondi Beach this year. I promise. I just really wanted to share some more photos of this pretty cool beach suburb. I went through my photos today and I found so many cool ones, at least in my humble opinion, that I decided I want to share them with you.  I know, I am so sweet! From the beach, sunsets, Iceberg club, and surfers, underneath you will find it all.

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.
