After 26 months of vagabonding, I can now officially say that I am a Sydney resident! :: cue the gasps ::

I just signed a lease on a 2-bedroom apartment in North Bondi, a quick 5 minute walk from the world-renowned Bondi Beach.

Sydney’s a tricky city to plan your travels for. Thanks to its plentiful waterways, traffic, and one-way streets, getting around Sydney is rarely straight-forward. Throw in the normal weekend track work and bus diversions and, man, it can take ages to get anywhere in Sydney by public transport.

Cronulla might just be Sydney’s most underrated ocean beach. It doesn’t have the glitz of Bondi or the dramatic ferry commute of Manly, but let me tell you what it does have: 6 km of gorgeous, flat, mostly undeveloped sand that you can easily have to yourself if you go far enough out.

I realize that throwing my two cents into the oft-heated and never-settled Sydney vs Melbourne debate is probably a fool’s errand, but what the hell – I’m doing it.

I’ve lived in both cities and thoroughly enjoyed my time in each of them.

As a travel writer, I should be able to write about most anything travel-related. And I’d like to think I can, if the numerous reviews I’ve written of hotels I’ve never visited are any indication of my research skills and general wordsmithery.

I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of living in two of the most fantastic cities in the world: New York and Sydney. While the fast paced, cut throat NYC lifestyle contrasts sharply with the casual beach bum mantra of Sydney, I found myself drawn to certain things that both cities do super well: coffee (NYC / SYD), street art (NYC / SYD), and city views (NYC).

Being the non-committal person I am, I’m not sure yet if I’ll return to Sydney to live later this year. But I do know that whenever my next Sydney stint is, I’ll be spending some quality time in Bondi again.

Manly to Spit Sydney Harbour walk
Australia

After the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk, the Manly to Spit harbour walk is Sydney’s second most popular walking track. It’s nearly twice as long (10km) and lacks a dramatic ocean coastline, but its landscapes and views are much more varied.
