It has been forever since I've last written my last travel post. I have no excuses, I may or may nor suck at commitment. However, I have been super busy the past 6 months as I started working for a publishing company and I've been putting 100% of my attention to it. So, AUSTRALIA eh. Australia, Australia, Australia. Where do I even begin? Australia has always been one of the most special places in my life. If you know me, you know how much sentimental value and memories it holds to me.
On the very first day, of course we had to drive through the nothing but godly Great Ocean Drive. From long scenic road trips to dramatic sights. Their secret beaches and their rock formations. Many times during my trip to Australia, I felt so insignificant in front of these sights. In such moments, I would look out to these beautiful creations and remember how delicately created the world can be. They make life problems so much smaller in that very moment, It almost felt like a scene in a movie. I would close my eyes and suddenly the only things that mattered then were the calming rhythmic sounds of the waves crashing and the feeling of the wind sweeping against my hair and skin. It was one of those cliché scenes when the hectic world around the protagonist would slow down as he took a deep breath in and every problem in his life seemed to have found a remedy. Yeah, you will definitely get that feeling there.
And if you are a mountain kind of person, Sydney doesn't shy away from that love of yours. Blue mountains has been such an amazing and crazy experience. I hardly experienced mountains growing up. I stay in a very metropolitan country. That means nature doesn't come easy from where I live. So to reach Sublime Point and really just experience and take in the whole view from a heaven's point of view was simply breathtaking, Breathtaking. Majestic. We watched the sun set behind the mountains and the sky turning into a bluish tint. When blue hour fell upon us, it was when we wrapped up a few shots, got photos of the whole crew and just really experienced the air from over a thousand feet above sea level one last time.
The colors of Australia was one of my biggest motivation to create a whole mood board for my change in style. Which is one of the reasons why I feel so connected to Australia, It is literally the birth place of my creative style. The open range safari in Wallaby was such a beauty. I know the controversies for zoos and animals in enclosure etc. but I always believed safaris were a great stepping stone in finding middle ground. The very next day, we visited a few lesser known nature spots. We kinda had to bear the rain that day but honestly, it was amazing. I would not trade anything in life for the experience I shared with my friends here.
What an end to a journey. The near 2 weeks, 2 states, 5 cities, 878km and 4 friends. What more could I have asked for honestly, my heart was so full. My time there was so fulfilling. So blessed. To more memories in this journey with you guys, I will forever be thankful :)
