It is a given that Sydney is one of the most expensive cities to live in. Taking the bus costs you a fortune, eating out is a no go for poor people like us and don’t even start about partying. However, you can’t visit Australia without seeing Sydney. So what to do without spending all your money here? Yes, there is more than the Harbour Bridge Walk! I have been living here for over three months now and I still love every day of it!
Everybody loves donuts, duuh. But these!? These are to die for. Even th(d)ough they call themselves Short Stop, I woulnd’t mind spending a whole day eating their donuts. I didn’t plan to go here, but the donut wall starred at me while I walked by. I first went for coffee, sat down and half an hour later I still was highly convinced I deserved a donut that day. Ok, maybe two donuts, even after I had ice cream less than an hour before.
Finally, I had some free time in my schedule and enough energy in my body to go outside and enjoy the sun. I have been working a lot lately to save up as much money as I can. It leaves me tired and not in the mood to go outside, but I choose for that at the moment. Because I have a goal! Last week it was a wonderful day in Sydney, the winter temperatures had risen above 20 degrees and the sun was burning. It made me decide to go outside and explore some foodie hotspots in Sydney, starting off with a new ice cream place called ‘ Honey Creme’, located at Goulburn St.
Het is weer een hele poos geleden dat ik mijn laatste dagboekverhaal voor jullie schreef. Dit is vooral omdat er niet zo heel veel spannends gebeurd om over naar huis te schrijven, letterlijk. Toch zat ik er over na te denken wat ik nu allemaal aan het doen ben en kwam tot de conclusie dat het voor jullie thuis misschien wel ontzettend interessant is. enfin, tijd voor een update besloot ik dus. Ik ben terug in Australië en heb een huis, werk en een fiets in Sydney, waar ik alweer 2,5 maand ben.
The Vivid Festival of Lights is an annual event in Sydney. I must be honost, I had never heard of the festival in my life, but it was nice! For three entire weeks the city features light art and other inspirational events. There is a lot going on in the three weeks, too much to visit everything. I ended up only seeing the main things in CBD as Darling Harbour, The Operahouse and the Botanical Garden. I went on a stroll with my camera and this was the result!
