Sydney Harbour and the Opera House

Sydney Opera House

One of the great thing about blogging is that you make friends online from all over the world, and in Sydney, I had the pleasure of finally meeting Vivienne, who blogs about fashion at Vivalaviv and her partner and street fashion photographer Kent.  Before my Sydney trip, I had been too stressed to manage anything else than just packing my suitcase, but Vivienne had seen on Instagram, that I was in Sydney so she got in touch, and it didn’t take more than a couple of messages back and forth, before we had arranged to meet the very same day.

We started with coffee and chai latte at a café in the Queen Victoria Building, and then we went for a walk to Sydney Opera House. The building was designed by the Danish architect Jørn Utzon, so being Danish, I might be biased, but in my opinion it is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. When I was a kid, the cereal boxes in Denmark used to have these stickers with animals but apparently also opera houses, because my first memory of the Sydney Opera House is from one of those stickers. I put the sticker on the chair in my room, and I would look at it and fantasize about how life would be down in that magic country, where the sun is shining on Christmas Eve and Santa would wear flip-flops and Bermuda shorts.

The Opera House was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007 and after seeing Sydney Opera House IRL, I’m even more intrigued by how gorgeous this building is, and even though I took enough photos to fill my Instagram feed with Sydney Opera House pictures for a year or two, none of them really managed to capture the true awesomeness of this place.
