Round two of pictures are now here! This time with more cultured pastimes (read: Art Gallery NSW, Museum of Contemporary Art and The Grounds of Alexandria). The art/creative scene in Sydney is buzzing and it was a great experience mooching around the galleries and garden grounds.
On the last day before my flight, we took advantage of the sunshine and visited the Grounds of Alexandria. Alexandria is an industrial side of town, so it was a really pleasant surprise to duck into a luscious, green setting with a selection of cafes and other eateries to choose from. The food was really decent (the berry smoothie was absolutely yummy). The vibe was cool as well. Imagine enjoying your meal and cuppa underneath hanging vines and solid timber structures. All I could think about was the maintenance fees and effort that go into the place daily… But, let the pictures speak for themselves!
It was such a good experience touring around the little nook and crannies (and those more touristy nooks) of Sydney. In the 4 day-visit, I spent just under $200 (flights excluded) for accommodation (tip: stay with locals!!), food, a couple of magazines, transport and the attractions. Such a worthwhile trip!
Currently sitting in Malaysia now. Not missing the cold weather in Australia and definitely appreciating the sunshine here. Hopefully more photo diaries are on their way! There’s nothing particularly exciting coming up in the next couple of weeks except a dear cousin’s wedding and family birthday celebrations! Always appreciate time spent with loved ones, they’re a blessing and definitely something to be thankful for. 🙂
