I wasn’t prepared for how much I fell in love with Sydney. The number of incredible pockets in the city, each with their own seductive personalities is what really did it for me. From Paddington to Surry Hills, to Bondi, Coogie and Mosman, Sydney just keeps on surprising. Everyone told me it would be Melbourne that would be the city to live in, but Sydney had my heart from the off. Miles and miles of pristine coastline, literally on the lap of the cities coolest areas, meant meetings could be finished with a quick hour snoozing on the beach. The lifestyle is addictive and although advised to the contrary, the people were some of the friendliest I’ve come across. Yes, they tell it like it is, which some people can find abrupt but luckily, I find it refreshing.
A suggestive weekend in Sydney: Try and time your flight to arrive into Sydney at sunset. It’s when the coastline and city is looking it’s best as the plane starts to descend. As always (if you haven’t gathered by now) I use Air bnb to find the most stylish yet affordable place to stay. I recommend staying in Paddington, for amazing houses, Surry Hills for the buzzy neighbourhood or Bondi for the cool beach vibes. It’s a must to check out the infamous Sydney bridge and Opera House and if you go at sunset, you can have drinks in Opera Bar soaking up the atmosphere. Dinner options are endless! There’s some of the worlds best restaurants here but if you want a low key pizza with buzzing atmosphere, head to Frankie’s. Other gorgeous places to eat if you take a short ferry is the Watson’s Bay Hotel (a stunning wedding venue) and The Sailors Club in Rose Bay (also another gorgeous wedding venue). The next day, take a walk around Surry Hills and head to the amazing Crown Street Market followed by an organic breakfast (poached pears with natural gluten free museli and organic yoghurt is DIVINE!). The food in Sydney is unbeatable (and in Australia in general) with so many healthy yet tasty options it’s ridiculous. As you’re walking around you’ll find even more amazing shops, street sales and delicious coffee shops but make sure you head to the Winery for a lunch outside in the garden with a glass of wine, obviously. On your final day, make sure you leave an hour to do the Bondi to Coogie walk. It’s breathtaking and can, literally, take your breath away if you walk fast enough. Finish off with a picnic on Bondi beach watching the surfers flex their skills. There’s so much to see and do in Sydney and the surrounds that it’s impossible to detail it all here.
