These photos were taken while on a recent trip to the Royal Botanic Gardens. We took a stroll through the garden and made a stop at the Rose Palace. There we spoke about “Nature” and how gardens are not natural in essence but depict an edenistic view of what human beings believe “Nature” to be.

Sydney Harbor Cruise

Finally photos from the amazing cruise that happened the first day we were here! Absolutely stunning views. Believe it or not, the ocean front neighborhoods were considered undesirable until just a few years ago. Now, it’s home to the rich and famous but before it was all affordable to the average Joe!

Darling Harbour is probably my favorite place to escape to in Sydney.

Sometimes it’s crowded with tourists, but on a sunny day like this past Saturday, I couldn’t resist taking my camera and just exploring the area again. It’s so close to Urbanest, too, which makes me regret not taking a book out there and just enjoying the sunshine every weekend that I’ve been here. 

These were some of my best pictures from the afternoon. My ankle started to hurt and I didn’t want to push it my last few days here, so I trekked back to Urbanest earlier than I would have liked. But if weather’s nice again tomorrow, I’ll make my way out there again before I stop at the Opera House once more!

17 May 2013Newtown, Sydney
On Friday, I paid a small visit to the Doctor Who pop-up shop in Newtown. I bought some Doctor Who related memorabilia for my friends back home, as well as a small something for myself. There are still a few things that I need to get from here, so I will definitely be paying another visit.
To the future NYUSydney students, or any student studying abroad in Sydney: Go to Newtown. As I was walking to the shop, I saw so many really cool places. Many more of the restaurants were vegan/veggie friendly (though I have no idea of the price since I didn’t get a chance to stop and look at the menu), there were more cafes and bookshops and other stores like it, and it altogether just has a really nice vibe to it. You can choose to take public transport there, if you wish, but the beginnings of the area itself isn’t that far of a walk from the Urbanest.
