So I have been following Lauren Bath for a little while now on Instagram. Its a great account with loads of travel related posts! Have a look.
She has teamed up with two others as part of The Travel Bootcamp. I love to travel and explore a new unfamiliar place and I thought it would be a nice thing to see how some people get to do so much amazing travel. So I decided to go along to their last event in Sydney, who knows what might come of it? I might start a new career (One day). This also meant we got to go to Sydney for a weekend :)
On the flight from Perth to Sydney there was the most amazing sunrise!!! I have seen a few sunrises and sunsets from the air but this one was really amazing!!!
Before we left we heard a romurs that there was going to be a small run on that finishes in Bondi on the Sunday. The Sydney City to Surf, I love fun runs but 80,000 people is just too many people for me to share a run with! This being the case as soon as the plane hit the ground it was off to Bondi Beach to have a look. Its nice enough but loads of people! We saw all the sights from the Bondi Lifeguard TV show. The tower, skate park and back packers rip. It would be great to spend sunrise or sunset there but there just wasn't enough time this trip.
As my time in Sydney was short I decided to head out early the next day before the Bootcamp and take some photos around the Bridge and Opera House at sunrise. Whilst the sunrise was nothing special, I really recommend getting up early to witness the sunrise around the Bridge and Opera House! Even if you're not trying to take photos, its just such a cool place at the best of times but it always has loads of people. For sunrise you have it all to your self!! Its amazing you can just take your time and soak it all in!!! :)
The Bootcamp is great, it was an information overload!!! It was also great to hear about how the travel industry works!! if you want to know more you will have to ask them :P http://thetravelbootcamp.com/
After the bootcamp it was out for diner and enjoy the lights and sights of Sydney harbour at night. Its so good to have some food and a few drinks then take a walk around it all again. Even though I had seen it in the morning its totally different once the sun has gone down. It really shows you a totally different side! People everywhere and everyone having a good time! The lights and all the boats, its magical.
The last morning in Sydney was a quick trip into the city and take the view from the bridge. I have done the bridge climb many years ago but its just a little too expensive these days! While it was a great experience to be honest the view you get from the walkway at road level is almost as good and you can take your own camera with you!!!!
Sydney is a great place to have a weekend away. There is so much more coastline to explore and that's before you head to the Blue Mountains! I didn't have time to see it all this trip but that's the best thing about travelling, everyone gets a different experience. :)
