Boat ride around Sydney Harbour

A few weekends ago, I joined S's family on a boat trip around the harbour. We embarked at Woolwich Pier and headed out towards Cremorne Point via the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

Adventures in Sydney: Narrabeen Head

Move aside Barrenjoey Lighthouse, the best lookout on the Northern Beaches is definitely Narrabeen Head! On one side, it overlooks the relatively unknown Turrimetta Beach.

Monthly Recap: February

February was about:

Experiencing and coping with anxiety; dealing with job insecurity; baking spicy chocolate chip cookies; watching 'The Greatest Showman' at the open air cinema; being brave enough to jump off the pier into the water; growing my confidence in deep water; eating semla; visiting the library bi-weekly; feeling exhausted constantly; taking iron supplements; planning and getting excited about my trip in May.

Bombo & Kiama

The beautiful South Coast is a mere two-hour train journey from Sydney. There are stunning beaches and unique geological attractions such as the Bombo Headland Quarry. The quarry consists of basalt columns, remnants of the blue metal quarrying conducted in the late 19th century.

The last - and only - time I had visited the area was 5 years (!!) ago. On that occasion, I caught the train to Minnamurra and walked to Kiama. This time, I decided to commence my walk from Bombo station, backtracked to Bombo Headland, then headed to Kiama and the Little Blowhole.
