We apologize for not updating our travel blog lately, but we've been a little busy with this thing called life. Anyways, we are back again, here sitting in front of a computer, trying to grasp the past seven months of our journey, and trying to find some words to put it down here. We try to be realistic, but it's just impossible, because we are in the middle of a dream. And we never want to wake up again.
Not to undermine Australia, but initially it wasn't on our destination list. First, and obviously the most important was the money factor, and second, the country is so big, probably Australia deserve at least a year itself to do justice, and spending time and energy just to put the "tip of your toe" on the water didn't sum up in our calculations. Nevertheless there are things that are more important than mountains, beaches and deserts: connection between souls.
Being in the same time zone and not visit one of the people who inspired us through his talent and passion, probably would give us bad karma on the journey, so we did meet again. One year ago, in a room filled with strangers, Glen Edwards told us a story about his life, and it instantly shook us and made us re-think about ourselves. There was something special in that room, that day, that made us somehow all connected through our individual struggles and vulnerabilities. Glen was gracious enough to host us, and it felt like home. Living in one of the coolest cities on this planet generated no complaint from us. To complete the Sydney experience, we also got to meet again with one of the photographers that really influenced us in many ways during our beginnings: Jonas Peterson. Inspiring was an understatement.
We've all seen the Opera House from pictures, but the experience of being present on a sunny afternoon and watching the day go by, added a bit of mysticism, and it couldn't started better the first days our journey. It gave us the confirmation that no matter where we would go, we would find home.

Our Sydney experience highlights:
* Finding a seat on the Opera House Bar and watching the sunset with the view of the Opera House and Harbor Bridge.
* Metro is really convenient, but walking around the city definitely gave us a closer look of how it feels to live in Sydney.
* Finding our new favorite ice-cream shop, and afternoon walks around the neighboorhood.
* Connecting with our friends and new talented photographers
