Yup, you know this view. It’s Bondi Beach, one of the most famous beaches in the world. And never did I think that I would ever get to see it in the flesh. What a blessing! Let me take you through half (again) of this picturesque day.
Our first day in Sydney was so packed, two blog posts are needed. After taking so many pictures in the beautiful Queen Victoria Building in the previous post, this one explores more of Sydney – the highlights of which I hopefully were able to incorporate into the title? (Trying to be witty, yeah…)
After a blissful six days in Melbourne, it was time for us to move on to one of the most famous places in Australia – Sydney! So many things Australia is known for is in Sydney… Opera House, need I say more? But let’s take this adventure slow – after all, there is a lot to be seen at literally every corner…
When researching about the places to go to in a certain country, you can be certain that the ones which appear on almost every list are most definitely worth visiting. One of those places is the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia.
Is a two-month writing/blogging spell worth the wait for this new travel blog post with one of the corniest titles ever? I hope the pictures more than make up for it. 😀
To answer the question that the (still extremely corny) title presents, Werribee is a suburb of Melbourne, which we were very fortunate to be able to explore courtesy of our gracious hosts, the Alcantara family. Even as I write about it now, I’m still floored by the depths and widths that Philippine hospitality to their fellow countrymen go to. So – to any member of the Alcantara family – if you’re reading this, please do know that to this moment, any mention or thought of Australia that we have always has your memories in it. 🙂
The family patriarch first took us to a place I myself would describe as touristy, but not too much that it just goes over your head (if that makes sense at all) – the Werribee State Rose Garden.
After recharging back to our normal selves in our first two days at Melbourne, we were beyond ready for a little adventure. Of course, our definition of adventure would be the tamest one possible – in this case, a day of strolling in comfortable, cool weather, on the hunt for our first sighting of Australia’s unique wild animals.
