Adventures in Sydney: Bardwell Valley Parklands


Growing up, a trip back to Hong Kong entailed a visit to a Chinese travel agency to organise the flights. The ones that advertise a 12 day international trip for something ridiculous like $600 (excluding flights) and only accepts cash payments. Eventually, we simply booked directly via the airline's websites and the act of visiting one of those tiny rooms filled wall-to-floor with ads ceased.

The Final Vivid


I have been to see Vivid semi-regularly over the last 10 years, however, my interest in the event has been diminishing after each visit.

Update



I've been a little absent from my blog this year. This is largely due to the fact that I haven't really done anything ~ exciting ~ to document. Over the last 12 months, I've stopped doing things and started to slow down and enjoy the little things. As I've mentioned before, a few years ago I was going on frequent-ish domestic trips (my roadtrips) partly because I was unhappy and it was my form of escapism. There was nothing quite like soothing a frazzled soul by driving for hours across an endless - and sometimes mundane - landscape

If you ever felt the desire to just get away from humanity, all you had to do was drive four hours inland and there was plenty of soul-purifying space, heart awakening space and silence to get lost in.

But I am in a different place in life now and the need for frequent exploring is of lesser importance. Nonetheless, I hope to embark on my big trip near the end of the year and hopefully a domestic adventure in the next month or so.

Onto my update!

Journals


After multiple declutters over the years, a specific item always made its way back to its allocated spot. Well, items to be more accurate. My journals.

Livejournal housed my semi angsty thoughts that - I perceived - were suitable for public consumption. Then I had my physical journal where I unleashed all my feelings. Unfiltered and raw.
