Ahhh firstly I'm so sorry for the one month hiatus. At first it was due to no wifi, but then I got sick and well, eventually I got lazy...
But anyways!! excuse my excuses, let's get straight to my summer vacation. I went over to Hong Kong first and joined a tour to go to Korea; only we were so unprepared for Korea we spent the first 10 or so days shopping for thermals and winter clothes. Sooo that means I didn't take any photos or do anything "touristy" in HK until after I came back from Korea. So without further adieu ....
Incheon International Airport
I think most of Asia was still in Christmas mode at this point.
Unfortunately the tour began at 8 in the morning, after a 3 hour flight in the middle of the night. I think due to the mumbling and death glares of most travellers, the guide keenly rushed us off to breakfast. At least it was warm, I was having a seriously hard time adjusting to 6°C weather.
Korean ginseng chicken soup (SamGyeTang)
The view outside the restaurant ... I was feeling a little trigger happy with my camera that day.
Day 2 of birthday celebrations takes place at Bondi!! Been living in Sydney my whole but I've only been to Bondi a total of 3 times. At first I really didn't understand why people loved this beach so much; I mean the water wasn't particularly clear and it's always crowded but for some reason coming back this time it truly was beautiful.
I went on a Monday and it was still crazy packed! It was also interesting to find that I didn't hear anyone speaking with an Australian accent; people will either speaking an entirely different language or accented English.
Walked all the way to Tamarama but it was totally worth it.
Hope you have a lovely new year! Happy Celebrations and good luck with the new year resolutions xx
