SYDNEY | Ep. 08

If it requires a bikini, my answer is yes! Here in Australia I’m forever chasing the sun and I love the challenge of it. This weekend was again, amazing and filled with many activities and breathtaking sights. Have a read and indulge in my world here in Sydney!

We walk along the east side of the beach and start the track towards the light house. The further you go up, the more breathtaking the sights get. From above, it shows the gorgeous, defined shape of the beach and the differences in coast. Being able to eat your lunch at a place like that is absolutely incredible. We walked around for a bit, took some nice pictures and headed down to enjoy an amazing beach day on the west side of the beach. The rest of the day we had a great time swimming, walking and soaking up sunshine on the rocks. To end the day off, I looked up a nice restaurant around the shore of Dee Why and after a satisfying meal we finally headed back home.

The next day again, my alarm went off pretty early to catch our ride to the Jenolan Caves. Now, this was an organised trip that I planned quite a while back so I was very excited for it. Although we started our day a little unlucky (we missed our bus to the pick up stand) we were able to enjoy an amazing day. With a nice group of people we head out to the Blue Mountains, starting at Echo View Point. From there we drove further to see some kangaroos and walibis. After a quick lunch at the Jenolan Caves it was finally time to actually explore the caves. These limestone caves are the most ancient discovered open caves in the world. They are approximately 340 million years old and have been part of the culture of local indigenous peoples for thousands of years.

The tour was great as the guide explained a lot about the history in a very funny and interesting way. By combining light and sound elements in the caves, it made the whole experience almost like an educative show. 2 hours later we’re back in the van and head to our last lookout point. At this point, everybody was very tired so it was no surprise that on the way back to Sydney CBD you could hear almost only sleeping noises. Concluding this trip, I can say that I definitely loved the caves and enjoyed the view points. But for me, driving to a viewpoint, looking around, taking a pic and then hopping back in a bus isn’t very adventurous. Personally, I prefer the idea to explore parts around that area on your own and be a little active by walking around and following a track. Either way, I had an amazing day and saw lovely things!

After all, an amazing weekend filled with amazing views, people and activities. I’m so incredibly thankful that I’m able to experience all these things and try to live every single minute to the maximum. Right now I’m at half of my stay and I can’t wait for the coming 2 months!
