From St Kilda Beach, we took the light rail back to the city center, back to the Melbourne Central station where we had stashed our bags in a locker, and took the bus to the airport. We flew from Melbourne to Sydney that day and arrived shortly before dinner. We were picked up at the airport by my sister’s entire family and we had dinner afterwards. It was the first time Fabio met my sister and her family and it was my first time to see them again after five years.

The next day, we decided to take an Uber car from our flat to bring us to Manly Beach. Manly Beach is a great Sydney beach for the whole family. The Manly Scenic Walkway meanders around the harbour foreshore from The Spit Bridge via Dobroyd Head to Manly through some of Sydney Harbour’s most stunning scenery and bushland. It takes about three to four hours to complete.

We could hear loud live music playing from the beach and I convinced Fabio to come check it out. We were lucky enough to watch one of my favorite Australian indie bands perform! I was so happy! Hahaha!
