A true friend will always be with you in good times & bad times #FriendshipGoals

Meet my friend, Lou! No she’s not just a friend, she’s my BFF (Booger Freaking Friend) 😛 We’ve known each other since college (2009), we were best buddies! We have a lots in common like adventures, travel, music and definitely LOL 😂. After graduation, we often see each other (once a year I guess) because of busy work schedule but we still have our communication through internet. Thanks #Facebook 👍🏼 And like me she travel first Australia to visit her relatives and then after a year she already left for good and we never had a chance to see each other to say goodbye. Apparently, It’s a small world after all. We were able to see each other again in Sydney. She lives in Haberfield, a well known village near the city. #richKid By that time, we spent half of our day chatting each other at PAPAS (Italian café)

“Fake it till you make it pose!”

It was my first ever wind battle in my entire life. I know i’m not the only one but the thing is that i wear the wrong clothes that’s why I suffered so much. (I’m wearing thermal,3/4 sleeves and my cardigan 👎🏼) yeah I’m idiot 😅

💡 Check out the weather of your planned destination to know what you’ll be needing.📲

Lunch time!

After our short trail to Blue Mountains, we had our lunch at Canton Palace, A Chinese restaurant in Katoomba. It’s funny because there’s a lot of tourists in the place and 90% of them were Chinese and it’s a long queue before we had our table and the service is totally crazy like we’ve waited for an hour before we had our dish but nevertheless the food taste good!

View from the cable ride

One of the amazing theme park i’ve ever been! Highly recommendable for family and friends 👨👩👧👦 There were four ways to enjoy the view, each way has its different payment but we had the unlimited access 😝

And the first thing we try is the 1️⃣Cableway🚠, it is the biggest cablecar in Australia & can carry up to 84 people 👪👨👩👧👨👩👧👦👨👩👦👦👨👩👧👧👩👩👧👧👩👩👦👦👩👩👧👦👩👩👧👩👩👦👨👨👦👨👨👧👦👨👨👦

Australia
Luckily were just few inside the cable. #perkstoenjoytheview

2️⃣ Walkway, which is the longest boardwalk in the Southern Hemisphere (2.4km) definitely worth the walk, surrounded by tall trees, hearing the whisper of birds, feeling the breeze of the wind & don’t look back until you get there 🚶

Australia
Walking for like 20mins going to the railway 🚶💃

3️⃣ Railway, my favorite! 👍🏼 if you’re into extreme rides, you’ll love this! This Railway is the steepest in the world can turn your stomach for like 52 degrees going up & down 🙅🙌🚇

Australia
It’s our second round, the first one is going up and now we’re going down 👏 we are seated in the first & second row 😎

And Last but not the least is the
4️⃣ Skyway, 270 metres which is the highest cable car in Australia 🚟 Like the Cableway, this will show you the widest view of blue mountains looking down will freak you out!

Despite of the unpleasant weather, we continue our journey and walk from the Opera house to Government House which is open for public but unluckily it was closed for visiting on that day, however we were able to have a glance in the glass door. All of a sudden, the rain pours and we only have one umbrella (we are 5) that’s why we stay for like 15mins waiting for the rain to stop then walk again to the coffee shop nearby.

Let’s see the history!

I didn’t spent much time inside although it’s free, i’m quite bored reading a story and it’s so big & you need like at least 1day to finish that but one thing amazed me is the name of the soldiers who fought on war that was written in the wall alphabetically, it’s a thousands of people and some of them were really young for a battle. Nevertheless, their Museum is great & high tech!
