Sydney Snippets

This sure is a jolly time of the year my friends.
The festive season has begun, the weather is warming up and of course (as you’ve seen in my constant rambling over my love for freedom) I have a whoollle lotta holidays!

So, as many Aussies do at the conclusion of school, they venture upon the beginning of many adventures on a trip now known as ‘schoolies’.

My friends and my choice of holiday you ask?
We chose Sydney. The ideal location providing everything from much needed retail therapy to beautiful beaches to spend hours relaxing on.
Flawless? –  Yep! Best time ever? –  Youuuu said it!

We went from the CBD, to Circular Quay, to Manley Beach, to Darling Harbour, to Toronga Zoo, to climbing the bridge, to Hyde Park, to Bronte Beach, to Paddington, to Surry Hills, to Bondi ( *take a breath* )

You could say we covered a little ground.

PLUS a wholllle lotta pictures!
