26 Jan Travel Diary – Australia (Sydney & Melbourne)
From now until June, I cannot make any travel arrangements!!! First, I have exams! Second, no holidays left! urghhhhh! So I will post all the photos from all the past trips with tips from me and Viet hehe… Next on the list will be … hmmm…. Prague? (followed by Rome, LA, Chicago, NY, Paris etc….)
But today is Australia’s National Day…. hmm … I think I should re-post our trip last February to Sydney and Melbourne from my old blog 🙂
YAY!!!! Australia marks the 5th continent that I have stepped my feet on!!!!!
When I travel, normally, I would plan months ahead!!! If I traveled in June, my head would think of what to wear in March… and in May, the suitcase would be packed, ready to go … a month later 🙂 I would also do a bit of research about “where to go”, my babi is responsible for “what to eat” most of the time as he does WONDER with this!!!!… and I would get disappointed if I missed anything.
Yes, that’s ME!
… and Yes, that’s how I travelled in the past: to Paris, to Rome, to Prague, to LA, to New York blah blah blah…
But… THIS TIME! Both Viet and I thought that we should just be SPONTANEOUS! be FUN! GO WITH THE FLOW for a change!
Of course, I would still plan on WHAT TO WEAR, but not as early and detailed as before…
Below are photos from our lovely trip to Sydney and Melbourne..
The Sydney Opera House is a MUST-GO for all the tourists…. we’re no exception 🙂 It added extra sugar to our lovely Valentine’s day…. Love’s in the air…
Then we headed to THE ROCKS!
My bf surprised me again with a Valentine’s dinner. The location was perfect, the food was perfect… the mood was perfect…. He made me feel like I was the luckiest girl on earth 🙂
second day in Sydney…. wondering where to go…. (this doesn’t normally happen =)) )
Then we decided to go to the historic Queen Victoria Building for breakfast!
There!!! I found my breakfast!!!
and then we decided to go to …. MANLY beach!
3rd day: Featherdale Wildlife Park, Blue Mountains… and we also learnt how to throw a boomerang!!
Harbour Bridge was probably my favorite night spot in Sydney….
After 3 days and 3 nights in Sydney…. we took the flight to Melbourne…
So many people have asked me about this suitcase… it’s a vintage American Tourister 🙂
The next morning, we visited Queen Victoria Market…
To be honest, Australia is probably my least favorite country out of those that I have visited… May be it’s due to the fact the I did not learn about the place’s history before my visit, so I rarely got excited…. and everything seemed a bit rushed…. because I didn’t plan probably??
Or maybe not…
Don’t get me wrong! We did have a good time there, just not as good as I expected it to be…
