Hello everyone and thank you so much for your lovely comments here and also on Instagram regarding our move back to Germany.

I am so behind with showing photos. These are some I took earlier this year in May when we got our fruit and vegetables at the Local Harvest Collective .

Hope you are all having a nice weekend.

See you later Sydney!

Untitled

In a few weeks time will we pack up our apartment here in Sydney, say goodbye to dear family & friends and move to the other side of the world! Again. It has been 4,5 amazing years here in Sydney and I am not sure if I have completely processed yet that this is all happening. While writing this my hair is still drying from my early swim, the sun is shining and there is no cloud at the sky. When you followed this blog in the last years you might have seen how special this place is and how fond we are of it. I really do think that Sydney is one of the best places to live. When we tell people about our decision to move we get very often asked why/really/are you sure?

It really is not easy when you call two places home and when those two places are 16,000km away from each other it is particularly hard to keep in touch and be part of people's life you really care about. We realize that we will always be in the situation to leave people & things we love behind us but at the same time we feel very privileged to call Australia and Germany our home. How lucky are we!? But you know, nothing is forever & it is important to be flexible and be open for new ideas and plans and that is what we are trying to do. We are excited to being back in Europe again and look forward to being closer to family and friends we have only seen a few times since I moved here, to more traveling and me speaking a bit more German. :)

The other Sunday Will, Mel and I drove an hour south to go for a bush walk in the Royal National Park. I have been there years ago and have such fond memories of the park, so I looked forward to going back and enjoying the bush and the water at the end of our walk.

Spring has finally arrived here in Sydney, the sky is so blue & the sun is getting warmer each day warming up the sea for many ocean swims....
A few photos from the blue sky in Newtown, the fantastic Brickfields Bakery & a walk to the water close to our house....

Enjoy!

The waves and the sea

Bronte, Sydney, AustraliaBronte, Sydney, AustraliaBronte, Sydney, Australia

I am behind with showing you photos, so these are three photos I took a while ago in Winter when we went to Bronte on a late Sunday afternoon. I said it many times before but watching the sea is something very calming and meditating even if the sea is rough and wild. We saw one brave surfer out there fighting the water trying to catch one of the high waves rolling in. Another fascinating thing to me are the different colours the sea can take on....

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
