Right after my gorgeous holiday in New Zealand at the beginning of last year, I journeyed to Australia to visit my uncle, who had just added an adorable little nunu to his family, and to explore.
I spent a week in Australia, and most of that time in Sydney. Here are a few snapshots of my time there 🙂
The sights, with a side of “lekker”
The Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and beaches with crystal clear water…so much beauty!
The Beonam teachers reunion – A day out with EunYoung
During my first two years in Korea, I was extremely lucky to have awesome co-workers. One colleague, who became my great friend, was EunYoung An. From timid conversations to an awkward lunch-date in Jeonju to Korean speaking lessons to regular sleepovers, EunYoung became one of my favourite people.
She was attending a training workshop in Australia, so we made plans to meet. This was possibly the best day I had while in Sydney. A huge lunch, a catch-up and (really awful) manicures were just some of the activities of the afternoon.
EunYoung is like a big sister to me, and I am so glad we got to share this day together!
The Blue Mountains
Having become accustomed to mountain scenery after living in Jangsu (a place that I will always call home), the city started to suffocate me after a while. I decided to book a tour of the Blue Mountains, a gorgeous area west of Sydney. Not only did I see some incredible natural beauty, but I got up close and personal with kangaroos and koala bears!
My week in Australia was a wonderful one. I got to meet a gorgeous baby, touch a sleepy koala bear and spend a day with a friend.
