One cannot miss the opportunity explore the gorgeousness of Sydney… specially when you are living there. The coastal walks, beaches and the magnificent mountain range, haven for all the outdoorsy people.
I came across Blackheath while looking for places with snowfall. Since it gets really hot during summers, I usually prefer going for walks and hiking during Sept and Oct when it’s relatively cooler. Took us two hours to complete the hike from Govett’s Lookout to Pulpit Rock. I felt so small and insignificant when compared to the magnificence of nature.
I know keep talking about Spit to Manly Coastal walk. Bushwalking actually, which is an Australian term for hiking. And when you have friends to play along, even better.
Hiking in Blue Mountains was probably the longest hike I ever did – 5 hours. But that’s mostly because we lost the way in the Leura Forest. Well the forest was dense, but we loved it. We crossed many waterfalls, walked along dangerous edges and even got a chance to walk below the Three Sister rock.

It was an amazing experience to see the famous rocks from below. When I look at the picture now I can’t believe I was amidst such dense foliage.
Along with Claire, Parul and Shalini, we have formed an Unconventional Alliance with A to Z co-host Pam Margolis as the ring leader … all set to rock the party
