Sydney, how I love thee...

Last week I was lucky enough to get in to the city to finally use a gift voucher that I got last year for Endota Spa (I literally used it the day it expired!). I've never been there before and it was really nice. To be honest, I've never been to a day spa that wasn't nice!

I absolutely love the city and this spa was at The Rocks, an absolutely beautiful part of Sydney that I just don't get to spend enough time in. Walking around with a coffee afterwards really made me miss my days of working on Bathurst Street in my early 20s. And then I remembered the travel and I was more than happy to be able to work so close to home now. When I'm not on maternity leave that is!

I took all of these photos on my iPhone. I did have my big camera with me but forgot to grab it out of the car, but the iPhone did the job, it's hard to make Sydney look bad.

  2. I want in! Pamper meeeee! Ha! You deserved it, Kylez. I have no doubt. X

  3. It is hard to make Sydney look bad isn't it!!
    Jealous of your spa day, so very very jealous!!
    You would love the vivid festival when that is on in May.

  4. Those pics bring me back Ky!! You've reminded me I have a voucher to use by May!!! Can't wait to meet you IRL on Saturday...

  5. Great photos Kylie, I bet you felt wonderful for the rest of the day!

  6. I love Sydney too. I want to go back again. I have a voucher I have to use too.

  7. We are heading back to NSW briefly next month and have a day planned in Sydney. Even though I lived there briefly, I have no idea what we should be 'casing' and what might interest my girls.

  8. This is what my kids call "nice Sydney" - the wandering, interesting, touristy side. Unfortunately when I go these days, it's to "stinky Sydney" for work - the train & grey suits side. I've been to Endota Spa in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley and they were both amazing :-)

  9. Your girls are both so adorable :-)

  10. Loved seeing your photos of Sydney, it is an awesome city. I can't wait to go back again one day.

  11. I love your Sydney pics and whoot on the Endota Spa.
    Thanks for linking up, Kylie.

  12. Wow great shots Kylie you got the eye. I love the alleyway shots. I love Sydney too a beautiful and exciting city. I hope you had a fab day.

  13. never been at Sydney but it looks so beautiful as shared by you on your pictures.

  14. Sydney is a wonderful place for all the right reasons. I visited a self storage there and the weather there was lovely, the amenities were plenty and transport was not of any problem as well. overall, my experience there was really pleasant and I would not mind going there again for leisure if I am not visiting the storage facility. It is a place for all members of the family from various age groups.
