Moving to Sydney Australia from New York USA during summer, was the best decision! A major move (via London and New Zealand) but I had the opportunity to enjoy summer at Bondi Beach while looking for work.
Sydney is a fabulous city - edgy, bright lights, big enough
for most city slickers, and famous sites such as the Opera House and Bondi
Beach. You can't be bored here as there
is something for everyone - though mostly an outdoors environment - which is
great for those who would describe themselves as water babies.
It is costly living in Sydney, no denying that. Clothes and shoes are not cheap, but then
again, most people live in their gym/beach gear and flipflops! Food is also not
cheap - but it is fresh, local and delicious - so most times it's worth the
price. As for the coffee....to die for!
If you want body-beautiful then head to the Eastern suburbs,
if you want clubby, head to Paddington, and if you want chilled then head
north. There are festivals every weekend, sports activities every day, and
fitness bootcamps in the morning and evenings.
There are no excuses for being a couch potato when living in
Also having joined up with a dragonboat club (Mavericks) has meant I've been able to meet a lot more people in a short time, keep fit, enjoy the outdoors and see Sydney from the water.
To sum up Sydney so far:
