WORST TRAVEL EXPERIENCE – THE TRIP OF NIGHTMARES – BALI

WORST TRAVEL EXPERIENCE – THE TRIP OF NIGHTMARES – BALI

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…

CHINESE GARDEN OF FRIENDSHIP SYDNEY

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!

SYDNEY BY NIGHT

SYDNEY BY NIGHT

I love Sydney! There I have said it. I have written many all-encompassing guides to different walks in Sydney, different suburbs as well as a full city guide. After pondering over what I would write about next I realized that I hadn’t written anything about Sydney by night.

I can’t tell you enough how cool this city is when the sun has set! And then I am not talking about clubbing and whatnot (that’s not my thing) but I am talking about The Opera House, The Harbour Bridge and all other highrises around these buildings.

This is truly a sight you must see at least once in your life. I can spend hours on end watching the city glitter at night whilst many many boats float past. Some blaring music, some enjoying the scenery whilst enjoying a dinner and some private boats just going to a sail on a water summers night.

I have never seen a style of posts like this with other travel bloggers ( I couldn’t find it) so here it is. Sydney by night, what you must see, where you must go to optimize your Sydney by night experience and where the best instagrammable spots are to make your folks back home jealous.

You are so very welcome…

The trouble is, Holland is such a stunning country that there is so much to explore! From stunning architecture in Rotterdam to those gorgeous colorful tulip fields in the countryside or the classics canals in Amsterdam.  So much diversity in such a tiny country.

TWO CREEK WALKING TRAIL

TWO CREEK WALKING TRAIL

Just before summer hits and the weather is too hot to do anything but sit at the beach and swim in the ocean, I wanted to do a quick few more walks. After finally finishing the Spit Bridge to Manly Walk a few weeks ago (plus writing about it in detail) I wanted to do something a little different this time and not do a coastal walk.

I opted for a walk with a bit more shade and a different scenery then Australia’s coast, I know, I am such a spoiled brat.

I did some Google searching and found the Two Creeks Walk located an easy bus trip away.  It offers (according to Google) post-war cobbled tracks and stonework, Coachwood forests, sweeping water vistas, and vegetation communities ranging from moist gullies to Sydney sandstone gully bushland.

I think that sounds pretty spiffy and decided to bind on my walking shoes and wander this 7.5-kilometer-long track.

BONDI TO BASIC | MY INSTAGRAM

BONDI TO BASIC | MY INSTAGRAM

I have recently started an Instagram account for this blog. Previously I used my personal Insta account, but I always felt a bit awkward posting too many pictures on there. I also had not told (still haven’t) to a lot of people that I started a blog. I guess I still feel a tad awkward about it, but that is a whole other story for another day.

So today’s post is going to be a little bit different then what I normally post, well not a little but a lot. You know that I normally spend hours researching and writing posts, but today I got a little frustrated with Instagram and I thought I would write you a quick post on how amazing (if I say so myself) my Instagram account is and why I think you should follow me ASAP. Unless you are a bot… like  90% of the accounts are on Insta nowadays.  So upsetting because it used to be such a cool site.
