What do you enjoy best in the country you're in? Any recommendations for travelers going to your new country?
"I have the option to go to over a hundred beaches just within Sydney if there's too many people or the swell is too big for a surf. The quality of food such as beef, lamb, and the fresh produce is just outstanding. And of course, the concept of work-life balance is highly considered and practiced. By the way, did I mention that there are no traffic jams?"
My girlfriend and I love spending the day in nature. Hundreds of national parks to explore. Below are just a few of the destinations we've been to and loved:
Royal National Park
Kuring gai national park
Booderee National park (South Coast)
Thelma and Louise, Neutral bay
When my girlfriend and I are both off from work and feeling lazy to cook, this is the cafe we always go to for breakfast.
Sushi Kaido, Chatswood
Our favorite sushi train close to home. They serve fresh wasabi and the nori sheets they use always have that toasted aroma.
Nilgir's, St. Leonards
Best Indian restaurant, I reckon. Their Thali dishes are great value for money. 3 different viands, rice, roti, papadums, raita, and a dessert for $14. They have a big buffet spread on Sundays as well.
Since my girlfriend is Turkish, every so often we go to Auburn to buy some ingredients that she loves and misses at the same time have lunch at takeaway shops around that area that serve decent Turkish dishes. Of course, I let her order everything and I shut up and eat.
