ADVENTURE SERIES #2 | GALLIPOLI STEPS TO SPIT JUNCTION RESERVE

I love a good secret location! Be it a beach, park, viewing spot or steps! Oh, talking about steps have you heard about the Gallipoli steps at spit junction? Ooops shhhhiiiizzz!! I guess the cats out of the bag now! Haha. Recently a friend of mine who used to live in Sydney was here visiting family and needed a bit of a breakaway, so she told me about this really cool walk that has incredible views and some secret steps that really only the locals know about. Well not anymore haha! Situated in Sydney’s north shore this beautiful area has a great viewing platform of spit junction from the top of Seaforth and is where the Gallipoli steps begin. So if you are visiting Sydney and just want a bit of peace and quiet from it all, then make sure to take your camera and your sneakers and enjoy this beautiful little walking trip I have made out for you! Adventure time #2!!!! WHOOP WHOOP!

AUSTRALIA DAY IN SYDNEY | A PHOTOSHOOT AT SYDNEY HARBOUR

For Christmas Santa gave me some money to spend however I wanted. Since I have been into photography lately I decided to spend that money on a new lens. (I know, I am such a dork, but I like doing it, so leave me alone haha)  Since I already have a zoom and a standard lens, I wanted to invest in a lens that is great for astrophotography as well as landscape photography.  I was adviced by the internet as well as by people who actually know what they are doing to look into getting a wide-angle lens. After extensive research, I found a lens that was not too extensive and got some great reviews. I bought it and tested it out during the Australia Day long weekend.  Underneath are some pictures of Sydney harbor during sunset and after dark with my new fancy pants lens.

GETTING AROUND IN SYDNEY | PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Sydney is a massive city! There is no way that you can walk everywhere. Of course, you can hop in a taxi or Uber, but you can only do that if you are made from gold. Getting from the city to Bondi Beach, for example, will cost you (With Uber) $51,00. That is a waste of money if you ask me. The most effective way to get around a foreign city is public transportation.  Sydney has an extensive and pretty reliable bus, train and ferry services which won’t cost you an arm and a leg.  In order to ride the public transportation system, you need to get yourself an Opal Card. In this post, I will show you how to explore Sydney using these opal cards!
