THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS – VIVID SYDNEY

THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS – VIVID SYDNEY

The Vivid light’s festival has kicked off once again in all its glory in Sydney, Australia. For the next three weeks, Vivid will dazzle and amaze over 1.7 million visitors who will flock to one of the world’s most beautiful harbor cities.

Each year the light spectacle gets bigger and better and of course this year, well, that is also the case. The theme of this year’s festival is Light, Music, and Ideas. The majority of the installations can be seen in Circular Quay and its surroundings. 

In this blog post, I have set up a walking route that you can take so you will see the majority of the light festival from spectacular vantage points… not a problem 😉

PHOTO DIARY #7 THE ROCKS, SYDNEY

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.

TRAVEL​ Q&A

TRAVEL​ Q&A

Recently I was completely out of ideas for blog posts. I know I haven’t talked about it a lot, but I have been very sick and was even admitted to hospital. I am now doing a lot better (woohoo!) but I am still feeling a bit weak. As I am low on energy at the moment, my attention span is very short so obviously, when writing blog posts, you have to do a lot of research, and at the moment I don’t really have the right frame of mind to do that.

So I ask some of my friends what I should do and they said to do a travel Q&A. I thought that was a great idea, so I got quite a few questions and I will answer them underneath. I hope you enjoy this post.

AIRLIE BEACH | GATEWAY TO THE WHITSUNDAYS

Airlie Beach ahhhh sounds like paradise! situated in Queensland this amazing, beautiful town is used as a departure point for the amazing Whitsundays. The resort town itself is, however, a lovely place for a quick getaway, from the hustle and bustle of city living and to stay for those seeking a relaxing holiday away.

The town center has an abundance of restaurants catering to every budget, boutique shops with stylish clothing and jewelry and plenty of souvenir shopping opportunities. The small resort town is definitely worth exploring and spending a few days there to unwind.
