Settling In

Arrived safely in Sydney yesterday and I am now starting to settle in. I moved in with Nicole in her apartment in Bondi Junction, Google map of the area. It's a nice apartment that we share with a woman called Prya. We will most likely get our own place in a couple of months but for now we are happy here.

Our balcony.

I am pretty jet lagged ( I'm getting old! ) so we took it easy today and just went for a walk to get to know the area. It's very different from Malmö/Sweden of course. The layout and style of Sydney so far reminds more of San Francisco than of European cities. Lots of villas and tiny parks.

Here are some photos from our walk from Bondi Junction, via Tamarama to Bondi Beach and back Bondi Junction again. With plenty of stops for coffee, food, more coffee, donuts and lots of acting-like-teenagers-in-love.  
View from top of Tamarama Park.

I didn't even know that this was a problem.

View of the park from the bottom. When we win the lottery we are going to get the blue house.

Across the Street from Tamarama Park is Tamarama beach which is tiny and full of waves and rocks. Not the safest beach in Australia but that didn't stop the surfers and boogie boarders from having fun.

The coast line was much more impressive than I had expected it to be. 

Two happy duffers enjoying the winter sun. Even though it's winter it's still almost 20 degrees in the sun. 

Nice rock formation.

Vietnamese fresh spring rolls and Hanoi Curry in the Bondi Beach area. The Bondi area seems to be packed with restaurants and bars. And it's only a 2 km walk from our house which is nice.
