7 OF SYDNEY’S BEST BEACHES

Sydney is incredibly blessed with some of the most famous and beautiful beaches in the world – all that sand, sparkling blue ocean and a water temperature that never dips below mild. It’s entirely understandable why spending the day at the beach is a favorite pastime of Sydneysiders. Whether it is summer or winter, you can always find a handful of people on any beach at any location throughout the city. Sydney is blessed with well over 100 beaches in the city, ranging in size from a few meters to several kilometers, located along the city’s Pacific Ocean coastline and its harbors, bays, and rivers. Underneath I will show you 7 of my favorite and most pretty beaches that are in Sydney. From the uber-popular Bondi, Manly, and Palm Beach to the small and oh so pretty Gordons bay or Balmoral Beach.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY GALORE IN KIRRIBILLI

Last weekend my friend Kim and I took advantage of a break in the cold winter weather and headed over to Kirribili near the Sydney Harbour. This place really is a photo op galore, from heart-stopping beautiful views of Sydney’s Harbor, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, Sydney Opera House, and the cities sensational skyline….There are just too many photo opportunities. We spend about 3 hours there before we had to head home and took that time to our full advantage. We took some pretty dazzling shots which I will show you underneath. I will also show you where to find these spots, in case you would like to re-create these. Cause you really should!

THE SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE

The Sydney opera house is probably one of the most iconic buildings in the world! Who has not seen the iconic images of the unique building at Sydney’s harbor? If you have never seen this building up close, then you probably have never realized how crazy it looks! I for example always thought it was 1 large building, but there are instead 4 separate buildings! Mind is blown, right? The other week on a lovely sunny autumn day, I took my fancy pants DSLR camara to Circular Quay and took some pictures of this building up close! Curious what it looks like then read on….

A MINI-BREAK IN HOBART, TASMANIA

Last week I was on a short mini-break in Tasmania to de-stress, enjoy life and just have a break from my day-to-day working live (managing a hotel is not as easy as most of you will think, its a high-stress job I tell ya). I will be writing lots of cool guides etc about my holiday, but I thought I would share some pictures and a daily guide first. So this post is a sort of photo diary, but then better. (I think)

MINI GUIDE TO OOTMARSUM, NETHERLANDS

I think pretty much 100% of the people following my blog have never heard of this small town before. Heck, I am certain if I would ask a Dutchman, most of them would say they don’t know where this little town is located. And, I can’t blame you. It is a pretty small town in the East of the Netherlands, and there is not a whole lot happening. You might wonder, why the heck would I write a post about it then? Well, this town is where my family originated. My family is super small and we have an unusual last name, so it is pretty easy to track our history (well we didn’t even have to do that, cause my grandpa is the first of the family to leave his village for love nawwwwwwwwwww). The town is actually very cute and went I was back home last September and I visited it with my parents. I took a bunch of photos which I would like to share with you. Additionally, I will give you some basic information, in case you are ever in the area and would like to check it out.
