There's one in every city.

That neighborhood.

That trendy, unique square-mileage, housing frilly street signs, local bands, and hipsters. That place that
claims to have the best coffee in the world, organically roasted and served in mugs that actually make the drink taste better. 

If you're from the Pacific Northwest, think 23rd Street in Portland or Ballard in Seattle.
In Sydney, you'll find Surry Hills.

But let's be honest, these neighborhood are actually pretty cool. There's a reason why they've made a name for themselves and Surry Hills is no exception.

Its streets are lined with beautiful homes, hanging flower pots, and unique bars. The tiny, hole-in-the-wall cafes are literally packed to max capacity because their food and coffee drink are THAT GOOD.  And there is nothing like a fresh chocolate croissant to bring home the win.

What are the trendy neighborhoods in the city you live in?

Much love,

It's been awhile

Remember that time when I was like, "Can't wait to blog ALL THE TIME about my adventures in Australia!"??? Clearly, that hasn't been happening. And I'm sorry.

I've been finding myself overwhelmed by the amount of new things that are to see and new people there are to meet. It seems like my days fill up fast and my time is better spent out doing things rather than blogging. But by the request of several friends and readers, here is a snippet into what's been happening down under.


And more practice using public transportation.
Taking the train places always makes me feel like I've stepped into Narnia.
Ferry from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay

A few updates...

Still no kangaroo or koala sightings.
I tried Vegimate, which is surprisingly ok when prepared properly.
I'll be spending a week in New Zealand at the end of the month (LOTR fans, holla!)

Much love,
