wanderlust.

Ask.   Our Story   

Why we are traveling and what we are learning.

 The iconic Luna Park on the northern shore of Sydney Harbor, Australia. 
Originally Constructed in 1935 the Park, though not much of it dates back to that time, still gives you the feel of an early amusement park with its relatively small venue and classic rides. 
Entry is Free and makes for a lovely sunny day visit on the north shore. Rides are HIGHLY overpriced and there isn’t a lot happening in the park in general but it is still worth a trip to walk around just to say that you did it. You can also indulge in some classic fair food such as “fairy floss” or cotton candy, corn dogs, mini donuts and of course the traditional Aussie Pie. Though I will say I was highly disappointed when I couldn’t find any Pretzels…

"Partner"

I’m not talking about the southern “Howdy Partner” partner, but the “This is my partner” (as in life partner) partner. 

In Australia, regardless of sexuality, it is more common to hear boyfriends and girlfriends, wives and husbands referred to as “Partner”. In my experience in the US, using the word “partner” has always been a flashing red light above my head saying, “I’M GAY!” Yes, there are those few straight couples in the states that refer to their other half as their partner, but it is rare, often slightly awkward, and often times the person using it is old or trying to be classy. 

Now I am not secretive about being a lesbian or about having a great girlfriend, but sometimes I don’t feel like bringing my sexuality into the conversation with the person I am just meeting. The fact that I am in a relationship with a female tends to overshadow the half interested conversation. It’s refreshing to be able to refer to Alissa as my partner out here and not have anyone bat an eyelash. Sure maybe they think I am talking about my boyfriend, and indeed some say things like “Oh, and what does he do?” and in that case I correct them. But sometimes I can say, “I am traveling with my partner” and that can be the end of it! It is amazing! Unfortunately there are still circumstances in the United States where I feel like I have to come out right then to every person who asks anything about my personal life. For all the times I get a normal response, I also get the same amount of uncomfortable silences from the person trying to decide how to best act like they are comfortable with it. It can be exhausting.

On the very edge of Coogee beach if you walk over the cliff edge and down the stairs there is this Awesome little swimming whole. We didn’t actually take a dip but if we were going to this would have been the place to do it.

Tamarama Beach
The Gay beach of Sydney. The beach was a lot smaller then we thought it would be but it had a nice feel about it and some fun waves to play in.

Gordon’s Bay
A Beautiful alternative to the beaches on either side. With jutting rock face to lay on and only a small strip of sand this is a much more secluded way to take a beach day.

Bondi Beach.

The Largest beach on the coastal walk, and probably the most famous. A very popular spot to come on a warm winters day, as it was when we went, as well as the finish line for the world famous City2Surf run that we partook in last month.

Waverley Cemetery

A literally breathtaking cemetery along the coastline that we were privileged to pass on the Bondi to Coogee walk.

The slightly confusing yet highly functional Clovelly Beach. 
The concrete edge of this beach is a great way to go to a beach without having to deal with sand and it also allows you to get to deeper walker more quickly. 
Maybe it was just me but I felt like the people sunbathing on the cement slab looked highly out of place and awkward, but if that is what you want to do then more power to yah. 
If you want to take a break along the Bondi to Coogee walk they have this conveniently placed bench looking out over the beautiful view of concrete slab. >.<

Bondi to Coogee Coastal walk.
A 6km walk along this astonishing coastline. I highly recommend this walk if you are in the Sydney area, it is a great way to see the different beaches along the coast as well as get a little exercise.

Hazy Sydney Skyline. 
Alissa Snapped this photo while we were on a bus up to Watsons bay after we did the Coogee to Bondi Coastal walk. I don&#8217;t know why but I am in love with it.
