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!
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!
After a long journey around the South Island of New Zealand the ferry towards the North waited for us. In about three weeks time I would discover everything the island had to give us. Little did I know how different the North would be from the South. Eventually I liked the South much better, but if you have the chance to travel both islands, do it. It has some sweet ass places to explore!
After travelling New Zealand for a full three months I really have the feeling I have seen the country. It has been an amazing journey, travelling across both the South and North Island. I explored most parts in a van and met many amazing people from all over the world. It has been an amazing experience, living through new adventures every day. Yet, a few locations in New Zealand took a special place in my heart. I made a photo gallery from these places, places that made me feel the happiest and places that are thát stunning, I could never ever forget them. These places where especially on the South Island.
Tasmania is stunning and I will start this post saying that you definitely can’t skip Tasmania when visiting Australia. I did a two week roadtrip, but could have spend over a month on the island without getting bored. It really is like people say ‘Small New Zealand’ (and I can know it, cause I am in NZ right now). Of course, you will visit the famous Wineglass Bay, Mount Wellington, Cataract Gorge and Bay of Fires, but all my highlights on the island where day walks in National Parks. I think you see the most of a country by foot, so to all the lazy people out there: get out of your car and go for some great hikes while you are on a roadtrip!
