Food Ahh the essence of life or the essence of my life anyway haha, there is something so incredibly special about exploring the world and learning about different countries and cultures through food. A lot of what distinguishes a country is the food from France with their croissants and Italy with their Gelato to India with their incredible curries. I mean how boring would this world be without these incredible flavors and smells and the enjoyment that we all receive from tasting something foreign and exciting and new to our taste buds.
So in today’s post, I thought I would share some of my top 20 foods from around the world (the must try’s), I would love to do every single country but that would take me waaaay too long lol and ain’t nobody got time for that! So grab yourself a tissue or a napkin or maybe a bib hahaha as I think today’s post is going to have you drooling. Warning – I haven’t chosen the classic well-known foods for each country, so don’t be alarmed if its something completely different to what you were thinking 😉
A global food bucket list oh yea! Here we go! In no particular order:
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.
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.
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.
Each year for my birthday I go on a little adventure. Whether it is to the Gold Coast, Jervis Bay or to Bali. I love to get away for a bit, think about life and recharge for another year. This year was the year that I traveled to Bali, Indonesia. Since I live in Australia it is only a short trip away and the weather is amazing, and the hotels are cheap.
However, this trip turned into a bit of a nightmare where I had to delay my flight back home and even ended up in the emergency room in Sydney.
If you are curious about what happened and what you can do to prevent this from happening, then I suggest you read on…
