Travelling with a baby

Sydney – active babymoon with friends

8 days in Sydney in a nutshell: exploring the beach, testing ferry rides and various watering holes, botanical gardens and opera. Active babymoon and fantastic citybreak. 22 weeks also the babybump feels relatively light and comfortable, the early morning/ all day sickness over, so I’d say probably best placed to explore and enjoy an active holiday.

We chose a North Sydney Airbnb flat, 3 kms from CBD by train or ferry; nice restaurants nearby. Relatively buzzy during the week (we understand it’s the base of IT and advertising industries) and quieter and peaceful at weekends.  Lovely flat, swimming pool and very convenient for its basement parking, Maria, thanks again ! 🙂

Manly beach was one of our favourites – we went a couple of times .

The ferry commute is just wonderful; and as a Londoner could not help myself comparing it with London underground. Life is sooo not fair !

Bondi beach as well, its cool vibes and amazing bodies.

Botanical gardens felt refreshing and bang in the middle of the city.

We bought Carmen tickets at the Opera – it must have been the most memorable opera outdoors . A balmy evening, with wonderful views over the harbour and amazing opera! London hosts many great performances over the summer months but I have to admit, despite attending many, we tend to end up with a blanket and/or umbrella.

We also explored some remote beaches and cool restaurants – Jonah on Whale beach has been a wonderful day out. Stunning ocean retreat and the only Relais & Chateaux in Sydney – we had a wonderful brunch with bubbles and more catching up.

Another day we spent at Blue Mountains – amazing and majestic; and we explored bits and pieces at leisure: The Three Sisters, Giant Staircase, bush-walks, Katoomba Falls, Cliff View Lookout.

Was ready to move to Sydney after those 8 wonderful days. Anyone else? 🙂

    What a great trip. I love watching opera outdoors – even more special in such a spectacular setting. Thanks for sharing on #FarawayFiles

      Pleasure to link in Clare! Thanks for hosting! I wish we get a proper summer in London as well so we get to enjoy properly Holland Park Opera and other outdoors performances!

    What a fabulous place for a babymoon – and I would have taken that commute any day over my old one across London on the tube. At one point, it looked like my husband might have had to move to Sydney for six months… in the end it never happened but I often wonder what it would have been like. One day I’ll finally get there! Thanks for linking up with #citytripping
