On the Streets of Sydney

| Photography | Travel | Sydney – things to do, eat and explore |

Just got back from a pretty awesome Sydney trip. Lots of exploring, lots of art, lots of learning (it is harder to do those things all in one go in the midst of hometown busyness :P). This trip, I tried my hand at watercolouring, raffia weaving, seeing the process of hat-making (with the team at Helen Kaminski), having a go at some hip-hop dance moves, and even doing the first few sessions of a Blender 3D animation course. Loved it, and loved hearing about the life and experiences of those I met along the way! Enjoy scrolling through photos (Walking the Streets, Chinese Friendship Garden, Hip Hip, Feed-Me sections) Thanks for the fun adventure!

Walking the Streets

Sydney has some amazing architecture. Here are a few shots from all around the city – Broadway – Darling Harbour – Camperdown (the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House are also great places to visit, but didn’t get to them this trip). Did I mention it was the 120th birthday of the Queen Victoria Building this year? That was a jazzy, artsy blast!

Chinese Garden of Friendship

For a small fee of $6, you can wander around this life-filled garden. See the white ibis nests, koi, waterfalls, our friendly water dragon and more. Traditional Chinese dress-ups are available for an extra cost and while I did not do this, I did notice lots of families wandering around in colourful garb. I could easily stay here for an afternoon!

Bought these shoes (rather spontaneously) from Raben footwear, just across the road from Crossover Dance Studio on Goulburn St. I attended the 1hr Beginners Hip-Hop class for $21 and it was excellent – felt well supported and learnt alot (wish I could have gone to more classes – there was a wide selection including jazz, urban, girl style, popping and K-pop)!

Can’t complain about the variety of food available – it was deliciously intriguing.

God with us (a testimony from Sydney):

The Greatest Treasure (2 Corinthians 4:7)

2018 The Greatest Treasure 2Corinthians4-7.jpeg

” But we have this treasure in earthen vessels,
that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed;
we are perplexed, but not in despair;
persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed –
always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 

[ 2 Corinthians 4:7-10]
