Travel Made Different

“Travel brings power and love back into your life.” -Rumi

Travelling enriches the soul. Travelling inspires and opens my eyes to a whole new world out there. Most importantly, travelling makes me feel free. I am thankful to be travelling for work most of the time, opening doors for Love, Bonito globally.

The recent Sydney trip has been a precious experience and I hope this little travelogue will inspire you to make memories and find joy in seeing the world too.

Landed to this amazing view of Sydney. Fluffly white clouds + Perfect weather = Bliss!
I have always been fascinated with aerial views from planes and they usually are picture perfect too! Plus, Sydney is one beautiful city to photograph.  

First stop – Bondi Beach!
Golden sand, clear blue waters and a really bustling beach. We took a long lazy brunch by the beach just people watching and soaking up the sun. Everyone was relaxed and the day started off perfect.  You HAVE TO take a walk along the coast after brunch watching surfers ride the waves and enjoy the breeze. Climb up towards the rocks to get a birds eye view of the entire beach.I promise the view will be worth it. If you love the wind in your face and enjoy alone time, you will definitely find a spot in Bondi to sit and just reflect. It was really refreshing for me, after the frenzy at work the week before.

This marks one of my most carefree days in Sydney.

If you love a good farmer’s market, you have to visit The Grounds of Alexandria. A magical garden housing stalls of fresh produce, freshly baked bread, tarts and amazingly pretty blooms. I love exploring farmers’ markets, trawling through stall after stall, and just watching the lovely interaction amongst the locals. The Grounds of Alexandria really stood out for me as every corner you turn, something will catch your eye. From freshly squeezed lemonade on a push cart to these delectable tarts. If you are a dessert lover, you have to try these amazing pastries. Every bite is an explosion of sweet endings.  If you are a coffee lover, you will be in for a treat as the Grounds showcases coffee from all over the world in their very own roastery. I was resisting the temptation to bring bags of coffee beans home! 

Touristy as it might seem, sunset at The Sydney Opera House should not be missed. Having a cocktail in hand and winding down after a day of traipsing about the city of Sydney is best done with this gorgeous view of the harbor.
