We were up and gone at around 8:45am and headed toward the Jewish Museum in Darlinghurst. Despite it being a 30 minute walk from where we were staying, it probably took us closer to 40-50 minutes to find it. You never realise how much you rely on your phone for directions until you’re in a different country and you no longer have any data to check.
By the time we got there I was pretty darn hungry and my feet were very sore and blistered so we stopped in the only place we could find that was open for breakfast called Una’s. It’s and Austrian/Swiss themed cafe. I had high hopes for this place. It was kind of adorable with its cute little pictures everywhere and all the chairs had little folk art flowers painted all over them. Sadly the waitress was kind of grumpy and the food was average at best. We still had a fun time chatting and taking pictures of each other and the interesting Austrian lemonade James bought.
After our breakfast we went into the Jewish Museum. As Christians we find all the Jewish history so interesting. Plus James and I have a love for museums. We can spend hours and hours in them looking at everything! This was no different. We were there for about 3 and a half hours just pouring over all of the history. It was great!
After that we tried to catch a bus back to the hostel but we could not work out when busses were coming or where they were going so we ended up just walking back. I was pretty tired when we got back so we just chilled in our room for a while.
Later that afternoon we headed out to the Westfield mall to check it out. It’s pretty big. We don’t have big malls in New Zealand so in comparison to what I’ve been in before it was HUGE. It was like 6 storeys! And it was almost entirely clothes and shoes. They had a full floor dedicated to luxury clothes then the next floor was just designer clothes. I honestly didn’t know there was a difference.
After wandering around for a while and realising we couldn’t afford anything there we headed up to the fifth floor which is just a huge food court. Yes that’s right. A floor dedicated to food. Way more my style. It was around 6pm so we got some dinner.
Yep, burgers again. We love us some burgers! I honestly believe James would love to eat some sort of sandwich/burger every day. It’s his favourite food.
We also got some parmesan and truffle oil fries. Oh man, they were good!
After that we headed back to our room. And that’s about it for Day 2.
I’ve decided to include Day 3 in this blog post because it was quite a lot less interesting for me.
The whole purpose of this trip was for James to go to the Liverpool vs Sydney football game. It was his birthday present from me. His best friend who is actually originally from the Liverpool area flew over the night before to watch it with him. The tickets were pretty expensive so I decided not to go. Football isn’t really my thing anyway. They had a really great time but it meant I was alone for almost the whole day. I went out for a wander and a little bit of a shop. I got myself a gorgeous whole foods recipe book for an absolute steal! The store it was in was closing down so everything was only $6! That’s a $20+ off so I was pretty happy about it!
I also bought some adorable little colouring in cards that have Psalms written on them. My goal is to try and memorize them and when I do I can colour it in as a reward. I’m excited about it.I had Italian food for dinner that night. Honestly I feel like I’m talking about the food I ate a lot in these blog posts. There’s no hiding how much I love great food!
That about sums up days 2 and 3. Come back soon to hear all about the rest of our trip away!
