There are a lot of reason why I’d like to travel to Sydney but there is only one that is important: surfing. It’s something I’ve always wanted to learn, how to properly ride the waves in one of the most beautiful cities, and actually stay on my board. Sydney is Australia’s oldest and definitely most diverse cities. It is also known around the world for its waves and clean beaches.

If you travel to Sydney you’ll see quite quickly that its a haven city for people who love the outdoors. This city has embraced physical activities to the max. There is a huge network of bike trails, jogging paths, you can sail, surf, laze on the beaches all afternoon or take walks along the shore. This city is filled with culture: sights to be seen, foods to taste and a life that really is as good as it gets. For a long time Sydney was that unreachable destination that everyone wanted to visit but not so many wanted to because of the long-haul flights across continents and oceans (and the price to go along with it). This is all changing. We still have to travel the same distance but you can find some really great cheap flights to Sydney these days.

Finding a surf camp is extremely easy. You just have to walk down to the beach or look up a board-rental place and you’d be able to pick up some lessons as well. If surfing is a little scary, try boogie boarding instead, or at least to start out (this is going to be me!).

Reading some reviews on-line, it seems that there’s more than a few other good spots outside of Sydney that can easily be reached by car. Manly for example and the whole north Sydney region. I think its a great idea to just rent a car and stay at the beach as long as you like, exploring the coast at your own pace. Compare car rental deals in Sydney to find the best one; rent with some friends and take a picnic lunch.

I’m sure there’s lot of other things to see in Sydney, have any recommendations? Otherwise, see you at Bondi!
