and so we arrived in sydney.
how should i even start describing this city? it’s the city of food. the city of diversity. the second asia. the city of harbours and beaches. the city that is a very comfortable mix of europe, usa and asia.
and naturally we as europeans, underestimated the australian-15degree-winter, which is all nice and warm as long as the sun is out. but when the sun goes down… i miss my warm sweaters and comfy jackets.
but in our defence, how are we supposed to know that there is no central heating in australia? or are we the only ones that did not know about it?
but regarding the quantity of colder days in comparison to the hot ones, they just might get away with it ;)
and everything is forgiven and forgotten as long as i can enjoy my breakfast in the sun with a perfect view from the balcony!
and when walking around the city, it definitely pays off to just get lost and wander through all off the little streets. you just might find something interesting.
that just happened on one of my strolls where i spotted a huge building covered in plants. and like a very well behaved (almost) architect that i am, i was trying to get closer to it, when i stumbled upon a perfect little alley called the spice alley. it is this asian-street-food-colourful-paper-lanterns-all-over, kind of place and i fell in love with it instantly!
and just a couple of minutes away from the spice alley…. yes, i finally got my hogwarts acceptance letter and will from now on be attending the hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry or here known as the university of sydney ;)
and after the life as a witch or wizard gets too hard, you can settle for the night in one of the nearby newtown live music bars for a pick-me-up potion, or as i like to call it, gin and tonic. (a recommendation – one of the best australian gins so far – the four pillars rare dry gin – black label)
cheers! :) xx
