Do you think hostels are just for kids?
When you think about Sydney, what do you picture? The beautiful harbour and the famous opera house? The fantastic zoos and unique animals? Or do you just picture price tags, dollar signs, and credit cards? While Sydney may be one of the most expensive places in the world, but there's no need to spend a fortune on accommodations.
No need, of course, if you're willing to stay at a hostel! It's a challenge we were eager to take on at Sydney's BIG hostel on Elizabeth Street.
Australian Sweet Treats to Savour
Tim Tams and travel? Yes please! These are the best desserts in Australia for travelers to try.
TurnipseedTravel is thrilled to welcome back Jo from Frugal First Class Travel for a second guest post. Her first contribution, Beyond Bondi Beach: An Insider's Guide to Sydney, gave us a behind-the-scenes look at this iconic city. Now Jo helps us explore a topic dear to my heart....
AUSTRALIAN SWEET TREATS TO SAVOUR
Anyone who reads Turnipseed Travel regularly will know Vanessa has a sweet tooth. I doubt she’s met a brownie she didn't like. Now down here in Australia, we don’t have a strong brownie culture, so to stop Vanessa going into withdrawals I’ve come up with a list of true Aussie delights to tempt her taste buds. As always, I’m conscious of her coffeecan budget, so everything I've chosen won’t break the budget. Oh, and by the way, they are all easily found in supermarkets, cafes or bakeries (except the Haigh’s chocs, which are well worth the trip!)
Jo from Frugal First Class Travel shows us what the locals love in Sydney
Vanessa is visiting Sydney later this year on her Around the World trip and I’m keen to show her my adopted city has much to offer beyond the well worn tourist path.
Sydney is notoriously expensive (even for those of us who live here), and I know she’s on a coffee can budget, so I’ve found Vanessa a range of great activities that won’t break the budget. I’m recommending activities and locations that are all easily reached by public transport (using a mixture of buses, ferries and trains) and that can be enjoyed regardless of your budget.
