For those of us who associate cold weather and dark nights with the sweet anticipation of Christmas drawing near, winter in Sydney in July can be confusing.
July is the Middle of Winter in Sydney
While July and August are summer in Europe, it can get pretty cold in Sydney and southern parts of Australia. Christmas in July used to seem like a bizarre concept to me, but now it’s making more sense…
Walking up the stairs in my Sydney house-sit, some old copies of Conde Nast Traveller in a stack of magazines caught my eye.
A copy of Conde Nast had prompted my move to Melbourne, Australia almost exactly 3 years ago. For some reason I had a feeling that very edition would be in the pile. I scanned the dates.
Mel is an amazing, fun free spirit from New York who I met when I lived at Bondi beach. I was amazed at her drive and achievements at such a young age. She had three websites and was feeling into becoming a coach in her early twenties! She’s also super spiritual. I once said she has the soul of a 100 year old monk. Oh, and she’s also hilarious!
One of the many things I love about travel is the people you meet. It can be so inspiring hearing people’s stories and seeing their perspectives. So I’m going to share interviews with people I’ve met on my travels who have inspired me in some way, as they may inspire you too!
