Hello Sydney and Blue Mountains
01.03.2012 - 01.03.2013 25 °C
Yes, after almost two years in the nation's capital it is time to say goodbye. As usual, life provides us with even better opportunities. Tommy has accepted a position at the University of New South Wales (campus in Sydney) to educate students in the field of sustainability and to do even more research! So, a few days Sydney per week it is! As there was no way we could live in a city as big (and busy) as Sydney, we bought a house as far away from the city as possible but still within commuting distance, once a week. We ended up in the Blue Mountains which are very touristy and incredibly beautiful. The towns and villages are surrounded by national parks, most of them listed as UNESCO World Heritage area. Nicki is quite excited to live in the mountains again! In our next blog entry we will introduce you to our new home "Lillith" - something else altogether!
For now, enjoy the pictures from our adventures in Canberra and the South East corner of New South Wales over the last 12 months!
