So it was all very sudden planning a trip to the Aussie land. It was of course one of my major places to visit on the bucket list - which is rather a huge one, but never imagined I would all of a sudden book my ticket, get the visa and go! All thanks to my boy friend who happens to be from Australia, and who exactly knows how much I love to travel, so one day he is like why not make a trip back home and get to meet everyone - here by everyone I mean everyone! Parents, friends, fellow other people and some more. The weather surprisingly was warmer than I had imagined, and being a well planned traveler I had anticipated it to be more pleasant that what Mumbai is normally. Of course surprises are good - but when you randomly see an unexpected hail storm in the middle of 'summer' it's a delightful surprise. We visited the hunter valley, blue mountains, Sydney Opera House, the rocks, and all the touristy places in and around Sydney. But the best was getting to live like a local, to live like you know the place and wander around fearlessly.
