The way Sydney should be: perfection

Mother nature decided to ease up today and gave Sydney a big shove towards a great start to Spring. We settled for a glorious 20C degree weather, clear blue skies & lots of amateur photo opps. A quick stop at iconic Harry’s Cafe de Wheels, we took our plain hotdog with mustard and meat pie with cheese sauce, to the beautiful Mrs Macquarie’s Chair / Royal Botanical Gardens & found ourselves a perfect spot – right across from the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. ‘Til next time….Travel safe

Supporting Daffodil Day, 24 August 2012

Ok so this blog post is not directly travel-related, but for those of you who are not aware, today is Daffodil Day across Australia. Excerpt from the official Daffodil Day website on behalf of the Cancer Council Australia: “This year, thousands of Australians will help raise vital funds in the fight against cancer by ordering Daffodil Day merchandise to sell, volunteering to help out on the day and donating. We couldn’t do it without you and appreciate your support in helping Cancer Council raise vital funds for research, education, prevention and support.” On behalf of people from work, a colleague bought a daffodil for everyone to support this fantastic cause.

Travel Memes & Quotes

I’m not usually one for spam mails, motivational posters & what not….but I do LOVE a good travel meme. Inspirational, travel memes. Ones that make me sigh. Ones that make me look out the window, leaving my thoughts to wander off on their own. Ones that make me want to quit my job & pack my bags for that next adventure. Ones that make me want to add them to my overflowing bucket(wish)list. Ones that make me reflect on where I’ve been (or haven’t been). Ones that make me want to turn to the stranger next to me & start telling them about how infinite the world really is (ok, that sounded like a Forest Gump moment!) And ones that made me start up this long awaited blog. So here are some of my faves. Would love it if you share yours – ones that have inspired you to fall in love with the travel bug that once bit you.   Travel safe, Ailene
