Road trip from Sydney to Brisbane.

Helene & I head to Brisbane from Sydney, we’ll spend Christmas there, she with her family & I with my adopted Aussie family. The ride takes around ten hours so we decide to break it & stay half way. We leave early in the morning, the air smells of burnt, the smoke has reappeared, on […]

Back to my beloved Sydney

Here I am again, in my wonderful Sydney, in my grand bay, in my comfortable and bright home of Helene’s, in front of that window I sit and write, in my place in the world, the place where I feel at home. But it is not all joy, Australia is burning and that saddens the […]

Beaches, harbours & gardens in Sydney.

It’s summer in Sydney, enjoying its beaches is mandatory. The Tasman Sea bathes the Sydney bay. One of its northern beaches is Balmoral Beach, the first one I visited. I decided to go by bus. I took the B1 from Milson Point station to Mosman, which was only two more stops away to Balmoral. It is a family beach, […]

Equipped with my hat, comfy clothing & shoes, a rucksack with plenty of water & some snacks, I headed off […]

May Gibbs home in Sydney.

Our topic of conversation was books, surprised, right? Now you can understand why I spent the morning with her. She told me about May Gibbs, a writer […]

Crossing Sydney’s Habour Bridge. Luna Park.

New Year in Sydney.
