SYDNEY 29 June-6 July

By 07:36 , ,

Hi there! Got back from Sydney a few days ago and I shall (slowly) blog about my trip. It's the 1-month winter break now! Met mum in Sydney because it's expensive to go back to SG and somewhere else haha

I'm doing it in the same format as the Tokyo trip (omg saw what I did and I'm shocked at the amount of effort I put into planning the itinerary lol wow) and will link posts to the itinerary below! Here's the Google Maps with all the locations (green = food, purple = attractions, red = didn't manage to go).  It's pretty easy to get from one place to another just by using Google Maps and the Opal Travel app. We spent upwards of $70 each on transport alone though we walked quite a bit. There's a free CBD shuttle (Route 555) but we never tried taking it!

Because I planned this, it revolves around vegan food lol with some touristy stuff, shopping and one art gallery to feel less uncultured. Maybe because I've been in Australia for a while, things weren't as fascinating haha but I still had fun! Also first time taking a plane alone omg 长大了

I'll try to finish this within the remaining 2 weeks of the break... but it always takes longer than I plan to. Haven't even blogged about Melbourne or (the few places I've been to in) Brisbane or the last couple of Tokyo posts omg lol ^^;
