This is the reason why we picked out our holiday apartment in Bondi, out of all the places to be in Sydney.
Check out those homes!!! Imagine if that was your front yard…
It’s the place to see, and to be seen in.
Bondi Beach is aaaamazing. Striking blue water that sparkles in the sun light and powdery soft sand, all of this only 20 minutes from Sydney CBD. And like a 5 minutes stroll from our little apartment. How on earth do they manage to keep it looking so pristine and beautiful despite being a major tourist hot spot? I have no idea. I would’ve imagined it to be heavily polluted by now.
I used to watch “Bondi Rescue” on Youtube for entertainment and never thought I’d actually get to frolic around in it someday. It’s just somewhere I didn’t picture myself in but I loved every minute spent on Bondi Beach. The weather was too harsh for swimwear so we were decked out in boots and leggings, nevertheless it was a quiet and gorgeous afternoon.
I think I would’ve preferred this than to be here in summer, as it gets crazy packed around in Bondi during peak season, I don’t believe it wouldn’t been quite as serene. My Sydney friend Andrew tells me it gets so busy, you’d have to wait sometimes more than an hour just to find a spot to sit down. On top of that, add the Australian sun / heat during summer… No, thanks.
We spent a whole afternoon here just chatting everything under the sun (literally), taking naps lying down on the soft white sand. Fidelis reads on her kindle, while I listen to songs and watch videos on Youtube…. Oh and of course, occasionally plugging out my earphones to listen to the waves crash onto shore while staring into the turqoise sky, thinking about how much I love life. That was my favorite part.
And that about sums up our afternoon in Bondi.
I can’t control my urge to chase sea gulls whenever I see them. It’s like I have to do it to stay sane. Like a doggy with it’s tail.
She looks an anime character in this photo!
I MAKE GOOD BOLLYWOOD DANCER???
A place this beautiful just makes you wanna jump up and dance…
But I can’t dance, so I made Fidel’s scarf dance for me.
A lucky capture!
It’s moments like this when I have absolutely no care in the world, that the randomest life questions pop into my head. Lately they’ve been all about maternity affairs… oh dear lord have mercy on my soul.
“Will I marry Sam?”
“What should I name my future daughter?”
“How many kids do I want to have?”
“As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others’ hearts. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you’ll cry because time is flying by.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you’ve never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. you just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts.
Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.”
