Colour Film: Canberra

June 2017

June 2017

Canberra is the capital city of Australia and located in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The location of the capital city was decided in 1908 as a compromise between Sydney and Melbourne, the two largest cities. It is an entirely planned city designed by two American architects, making it one of the few entirely planned cities in the world! Workers in the ACT are among the highest paid (on average) in the entire country. Good ol' public servants.

Jervis Bay (Travel Diary)

Last weekend the boyfriend and I headed down the coast to Jervis Bay. Similar to my first trip 3 years ago, the weather was dreary and it was the complete opposite of beach weather. Nonetheless, it was a wonderful weekend away we also went on a boat cruise to see dolphins! I have made a video diary of my trip. Please ignore the smudge in the top third of the frames, it is something on my sensor.


Of course, I will have posts with photos at a later point!

Happy Friday / Weekend everyone!

Jervis Bay

I am procrastinating and thought it was time (finally) to blog about my trip to Jervis Bay which happened almost a month ago.

The plan was to head down to Berry, 7 Mile Beach and finally Vincentia in Jervis Bay for our beach holiday. Boy, did we pick the wrong days.

But first, for the sake of completeness, I shall start off with the Tuesday, the day before we left. It was beach weather that day and we headed out to Long Reef Headland which I actually had never visited before.

We had lunch at the famous Upper Crust.

A. ordered the beef stroganoff whilst I ordered a chicken, brie and avocado pie. I was quite disappointed in the pies. Sure, they tasted okay however for the price it just really wasn't worth it. It tasted so similar to the pies at Hamlet's at Manly Corso, or for a slightly cheaper price (but the same pie) you could have gotten it at my old place of employment or from Paddy's Pies. Nonetheless, it was a good pie, but just not worth the money considering I know of cheaper alternatives.

We stopped by the Berry Donut Van which made fresh donuts and they were amazing! When I was younger, I disliked the cinnamon donuts; who wanted plain ol' cinnamon when there was chocolate or strawberry icing! However, these days I much prefer cinnamon (though I am not the biggest fan of donuts).

By the time we reached 7 Mile Beach, the weather was completely dreary (as it was for the remainder of our trip).

Our destination: Vincentia, Jervis Bay.

The weather was miserable and we ended up spending most of our time in our hotel/motel room pigging out and watching terrible daytime tv.
