TRAVEL MANTRA

Always go

TRAVEL RITUAL

Seek out a local bar—it’s the best way to meet people, hear stories and discover off-beat recommendations

I LOVE TRAVELING BECAUSE…

I live for the feeling of being in motion

What made you decide on this destination?

I have a long standing love affair with Sydney…the beautiful beaches and coastline paired with proximity to such a global city is a rare combination.

 

How did this trip come together?

I traveled to Sydney to shoot a super fun project at Pier One Sydney, an Autograph Hotels property located right on the harbor with incredible views of the bridge and opera house. Check out the full film.

 

Best form of transportation?

Take a water-taxi or Manly ferry for the incredible bridge and harbor views.

 

Highlights and favorite things?

The Bondi to Bronte walk, always. I love the view over Bondi Icebergs—watching brave swimmers tackle the crashing waves. Also the opera house views—how the light falls across the segment like structure at different times during the day.

Under the radar must-see or do?

Visit Parlor in Bondi, one of my favorite spots for breakfast and coffee.

 

Craziest memory?

My husband and I road tripped from Queensland to Sydney and it rained the entire way. We camped too—think lots of card games and red wine under a tarpaulin. As we pulled into Sydney the sun appeared and it all seemed worth it!

 

3 words that sum up your experience.

Shimmering. Vibrant. Beautiful

 

Looking back, what do you miss the most?

Swimming in the ocean each day.

 

Travel Advice

Sydney offers an incredible mix of beach living and city life—make sure to explore the beaches (Bondi, Bronte etc) but also the Rocks, Surry Hills and Paddington. Also check out newly opened Barangaroo Park.

 

Where to next?

A road trip through the American South West, a week long horseback pack trip through Victoria’s Snowy Mountains and hopefully India. I’m yet to visit and have always dreamed of going!
