How beautiful is Bondi Beach, hey ? It is really amazing, and the water there is just so extremely salty. It is really a cool beach.
But why do I never remember to wear sunglasses? To be a day on the East-coast of Australia, it was actually quite cold and clouded. But my eyes were still burning. The temperature was low enough to make the walk in the sand tolerable but it felt like it was possible to get som tan out of it all anyways. At least I got a pretty, red, lobster-skin – color. Better than look as white as snow, I guess. My parents have sent me photos from back home where they are skiing. So I am not really allowed to complain either.
Half of my clothes is placed in a huge pile outside of our washing-room. Our washing machine broke down almost two weeks ago, and it is finally good again. Thankfully. I was about to run out of clothes. Is is not crazy how you suddenly have so much to think about once you have moved out from your parents? I mean… washing machines?
To have anything to write about at all on this blog in the future, I just have to keep you updated in what I do in School and church. Since that is where I spend all of my time basically, haha.
So we had Heart and Soul night at church yesterday. That is a yearly happening where our senior pastor tells about the local vision at church. It was really inspiring and encouraging. I am going to serve in the youth ministry, and I am serving for the first time later this week. So I am really excited to get startet. Right now I am going to take another cup of tea, so I will update you guys again soon. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
Hello dear reader, I hope your day has been great so far!
My second cup of tea this afternoon is carefully balancing on the couch next to my left tight. It is burning through my pants and into my sunburnt skin. I have probably used half of my bottle with Aloe-Vera, and it is starting to help. But my skin is still sore.
Let me just tell you one thing; Climate change is real! That is something you really realize when you move to Australia. The sun here is so intense! The UV-index is extremely high. My sunscreen with factor 50 did not help my body against this monster of a sun.
Anyways, another day of college is done!
We have finally started with our classes for reals. The teaching is so good, the people are so nice, and It is so good to be in a routine again. Everything feels less overwhelming now. Even though I felt home here really fast, I am feeling even more at home now.
This Saturday I went with Krista, another girl from our intake, to the beach. We walked a very famous route along the beaches called
“The Coogee/Bondi walk.”
It was an hour or so with the most beautiful walk I have ever had. The view was stunning. The sea was even bluer than you can see on these pictures! It all ended on famous Bondi Beach (which I will show you more pictures from later)
But hey, let me take you with me… back to my view on this amazing trip.
Hello there! Finally. The moment you have waited for… the number one tourist, bucketlist pictures from the opera-house have finally arrived to this blog! 🙂
So. We parked Keshas` car somewhere close to the city, and jumped on a train for the rest of the way into the Opera-house. I needed to see it. After all I have spent a few weeks in Sydney now, and it was about time to be a tourist here as well .
It was crowded. Hot, but not hotter than usual. I am just amazed by this city. It is so big, so different and so beautiful.
I had do pinch myself in my arm a couple of times. Am I really here?
Suddenly I was standing next to one of the tourist-attractions I have seen so many pictures of, dreamed of, and placed on my bucket list. Here I am. In Australia. In Sydney, and suddenly next to The Operahouse and The Harbour bridge. It is as pretty as you could imagine. Prettier. The sea is even more blue than my pictures can show you.
I would really love to go on a show there soon. It is probably amazing, but the tickets are not exactly cheap so I`ll wait a little bit.
The botanic garden is also really nice. It is so cool with all the plants and flowers. A couple of strange birds flew by, and I asked Kesha what that was. She looked suprised at me, so amazed that I had never seen one of those before.
I`ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Have a wonderful day, dear reader ❤
Yesterday, my room-mate Kesha and I decided to spend the day in the city. Just so I could see all of the tourist-attractions they have there. So there we were. Walking in the melting sun.
Among all the tourists who were taking Instagram photos next to the Opera – house. We spotted a lot of runners in the botanic garden. And som business people with suits and expensive purses.
There I was. In the middle of a huge city with people everywhere. My camera was filled up with photos. My feet were hurting because I had been stupid enough to walk with converse shoes all day.
We discussed which café we should choose until we both became so hungry that we just ended up choosing one. Both of us though the açai bowl looked amazing, but too expensive. Both of us ended up buying it anyway.
There we were. There I was. Just happy about life. And that moment I was living in right there. Right now.
All these cages, but there are no birds here. I think they all were set free.
