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!

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…

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.
