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!

Hip-Hop

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)!

Feed-Me

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