Out and About Sydney – An Expat’s Life in The Land Down Under

You can probably make an educated guess from my pictures and posts that I’m more than enjoying my time here in Sydney. The people I’ve met are friendly, helpful, welcoming and interesting.  The scenery, from the city to the beaches, is unbelievable. The general atmosphere is just plain happy. And in between working, interning and training [for a tough mudder, kill me now], I’ve managed to see and experience quite a lot in the short five weeks I’ve been here.

1.) Vivid Sydney: An outdoor annual cultural event featuring immersive light installations and projections, performances from local and international musicians and an ideas exchange forum featuring public talks and debates from leading creative thinkers.

2.) The Rocks – Sydney Harbour: “An urban locality, tourist precinct and historic area of Sydney’s city centre.”

3.) Bondi Beach: “Sydney’s most famous, touristy, dirty and crowded beach.”

4.) North Head Manly: “The heath-covered clifftops at North Head reveal unending ocean views and a spectacular panorama of the harbour and Sydney skyline.”

5.) Centennial Park: “The second largest park operated by the Champaign Park District.”


6.) The Corso – Manly Beach: “One of the main streets of Manly, New South Wales, Australia. It connects the Manly ferry wharf and Sydney Harbour, to the Pacific Ocean side of the Manly peninsula.”


7.) Bondi to Bronte Headlands Run: “A well defined medium-gradient pathway with excellent views along rocky coast.”


These are but a few of the amazing places that surround my new home. One quote comes to mind when I’m exploring this spectacular city:

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”

No matter where you are in the world, wherever you call home, you can always seek out the beauty and adventure.
