Today’s Outfit; Napping at Bondi Beach
First stop that morning was to visit Hyde Park Barracks Museum, located just next to Sydney’s famous Hyde Park. There, we stepped back in time and learned about the life of the convicts and how big their contributions were to build Sydney. The place is pretty creepy and not to mention all of the stuff, photographs and everything else is very haunting. The replica of their clothes, shoes, tools and even food are available for us to see just to get a taste on how life was like for them back then.

Guess where I went after the museum? Bondi Beach, Australia’s famous beach or pretty much one of the world’s most popular beaches. I LOVE it there. I love the area. I love how it seems everyone’s activity revolves around the beach. There’s so many liveliness around. Kids skateboarding, adults playing volleyball, sunbathing, people jogging alongside the beach trail, artists scribbling on the wall provided for graffiti near the beach, people sitting at the string of cafes at the opposite of the beach, and people taking their dog for a walk. And it’s not even summer yet. I can’t imagine how crowded it can be during the warmer months. And I could definitely imagine myself living there .
There, I built sand with my kids, and let them play a bit more with the sand and water while I…took a nap! I’m not a nap person. I probably take nap 2-3 times a year! But with the wind breeze, the sound of waves crashing felt like a white noise that put me to sleep. So I napped, for like 10 minutes and I believe that was the best nap I have ever experienced. It was so refreshing to be waking up in nature and witnessing its the beauty.
When you visit Sydney, you definitely need to visit Bondi beach and get ready for the scenic view you’ll see on the way back. The great views of the ocean and the city from up the hill is truly a sight worth visiting for. You can also see the neighbourhood and the beautiful houses which I believe rank in the most expensive areas around Sydney.
After that we went back to the city and visited the Queen Elizabeth building but weren’t really impressed because I came to Australia to experience its outdoor lifestyle . So we walked around the area and found our way back to Darling Harbour to see fireworks! I know it wasn’t New Year’s Eve but at least I got to experience fireworks in Darling Harbour. Then, we met my cousins who live there and had coffee and chocolate at Guylian until midnight.
