Here are some pictures of Sydney.

I’m back to Sydney again! I visited Sydney many years ago and I rated this city as one of my favorite places in the world. Being back here only confirms this for me – Sydney offers all kind of cultural stimuli, a comparatively healthy economy, beaches and mountains in near range, a multi-cultural population and all lots of great yummy restaurants that I can’t visit unless I decide to live here. There are so many places that I would love to revisit such as the Fish market, the Rocks, Darling Harbor & China Town… and so many more… And the answer is Yes, I could live here, no problem (only if, Melbourne is not suitable anymore… ha). The only downside is, the place is physically so far away from everything else. I guess this handicap is also partly accountable for Sydney being such a great place to live too.

Tasmania: ‘Explore the Possibilities’

by roniel

The route for this trip is Hobart → Port Arthur → Oatlands → Ross → Launceston. Tasmania is really a great natural state as described of its previous slogan and  we had a great time driving through the highways and exploring the beauty of nature. With the sun shining on us the whole 4 days – we took so many beautiful photos as we went along.

Funny moments: I got a “caution” for speeding. It was just hilarious and lucky the friendly cop gave me a second chance! This is my second time I came to Tasmania and I remember I was caught by those sh*t speed cameras – so I guess I didn’t learn my lesson..


Here are some photos on this trip:

A nice view of the Wharf in Hobart

Feel thirsty…? Paradise – the sunshine, the view… its all good!

A rainbow we saw on the way to Ross… it is just beautiful!
