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.

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.

CHINESE GARDEN OF FRIENDSHIP SYDNEY

You can read hundreds of Sydney City guides and not many will talk about the Chinese Garden of Friendship. I wrote one of those city guides myself, shame on me! I have been living in Sydney for 7 years now, and I had never been to these gardens.  And boy do I regret it. These gardens are absolutely stunning, tranquil and are cheap to enter.   In this post, I will show you what you can expect when going to these gardens, which I suggest you do when you are in Sydney, cause they are pretty amazing!
