20 February 2016


At the end of February we decided to say goodbye to Sydney for a couple of days and chill on the beach at Nelson Bay. 4 days of swimming, walking, awesome landscapes and yummy steak sandwhiches at 'The Home Interior'. What more could you ask for?

We walked one kilometre UPHILL for rockstar views of Nelson Bay and Shoal Bay, Totally worth it. 

Went to Zenith Beach and learned how a boogie board is supposed to be used Childhood me was missing out by sticking to just bobbing above the water. 

Oh Nelson, you sexy thang.
Pizza dinner on the beach followed by sunset swims and dolphin spottings as the stars started to show their faces. 
If you ever find yourself in Nelson Bay, I can't recommend 'The Home Interior' enough for an awesome lunch (I recommend the open steak sandwich with beetroot relish) accompanied by a scrumptious iced mocha. If I could, I'd work there. Why'd you have to be 3 hours away???

Australia Day: A day dedicated to sticky barbecues with the fam bam, long hours in the sun jamming to triple j, bogan pride (made evident by the OD of patriarchal temporary tattoos ) and (if you're in our family), a weistwurst + sauerkraut down by Sydney Harbour. 

This year we spent this fabulous day in the scorching sun, trecking it from the markets at The Rocks, around Circular Quay to the Opera House, through the Botanical Gardens then all the way to Darling Harbour - finishing the day with a beer and a ferry trip home (then mistaking my face for a lobster when I saw my sunburn in the mirror, but we don't need to get into that..).

I feel ashamed to admit that although I've been a Sydneysider for almost 18 years, I've only taken the time to visit the Opera house twice. 

Yep. Twice. And this was the second time.

Shameful, I know.  

So this time round, I made sure I took it all in - and let me tell you: it's spectacular. Simply looking up is mesmerizing and seeing it all up close is even better than from afar. Each time I visit the city I find myself more and more enchanted with the wonderful structures that there are to be found. Next time you're wondering around your home city, look up. You'll see a new, peaceful yet magnificent side of your home you've never seen before.
