Sydney, New South Wales, February 2016.

I feel like those pictures were taken ages ago, but it kind of was as it has been two months since I visited Sydney already! As you may have noticed, it has been really difficult for me to be up-to-date and keep on posting on the blog lately. I think it is because of all my move in and move out the past few weeks and this brand new life in our van. It is amazing and very exciting to live on the road but you have to find your balance and places to go for the the wi-fi, ha ha!

Anyway, here we are with the sequel of my alone adventures. After Brisbane I went to Sydney for 8 days. I was really looking forward to discover this extraordinary city since the moment I landed in Australia. And when I discovered it I though that I would have prefer to land there instead of Melbourne. Don’t get me wrong, Melbourne is an awesome city and I really enjoyed living there but it’s really common for us as this city is very European-like. Of course this is something new, but when you travel all across the globe and fly for 22 hours you except to find something that you haven’t seen before. And this is how I felt when I first saw the Opera house and the Harbor bridge at the golden light on my first day in Sydney. Something new and different. So I know that there is a thing with Melbourne and Sydney. The Melbourians don’t like Sydney and the other way around but I didn’t listen what people said and at the end I like them both. Sydney for its paradisiac beaches and Melbourne for its way of life.
