So excited today to share this post. I’m so filled with energy and an exciting experience that has boosted my days ever since we did it. But before I get to it let’s just get to the basics. Let’s kick off this week on a positive note!

It’s easy:

  • Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
  • Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.
  • Share this post and invite your followers as well.

So before I share why I’m so excited for the coming week let’s do another happy dance. As you know I love my happy dances and so I decided to just keep doing it 😉

Another round just because it’s so much fun. I promise it won’t take long as I have dinner cooking at the moment and will need to get to it in a second… Keep dancing if you like. It’s always a good thing to dance.

And when you are done, here is what I can’t wait to share with you today!

“Today I crossed off a bucket list item. For some reason I thought I would not do it. Because I’m a little scared of heights. But I did it. And not only that but I did it with my family. With my super adventurous husband, with my equally adventurous son and with my super courageous daughter who is as scared of heights as I am but was brave enough to be head of the group (not just us). Not only am I proud of myself but I am so so proud of her. And I’m full of happiness because of the feeling this gave to me. We did the Bridge Climb in Sydney! We conquered Sydney Harbor Bridge! We had most likely the best weather conditions ever and the views are just stunning. If you ever get there, do it! And you know what: If you are scared of heights: Do it anyway. When you are back on the ground you will be filled with excitement and happiness. So it’s well worth it… Funny fact by the way: The flags on top of the bridge are replaced every 5 months due to the beating they get…”

 

BridgeClimb Sydney Flags Morning

Bridge

It’s one of the things I’m planning on doing this year: The Bridge Climb of Sydney’s Harbor Bridge. The view from up there must be stunning! I know it will be a bit of a thrill for me as I have my slight issues with heights. But as long as I can put my feet on steady ground I’m fine.

The bridge connects Sydney’s CBD with the North Shore. It’s one of the icons of Sydney, a must see in a sense. And also something you sort of can’t just not see. As I have mentioned, you have the option to do a bridge climb of the Sydney Harbor Bridge, where they take you on top of it, where the flags are. While I’m fine to do it at any time, I think a sunset climb would be the most amazing thing. Here is to planning a new adventure 😉

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 27 – Architecture

Coming from Europe I’m used to stunning architecture, old buildings and heaps of history involved. Australia is a fairly young country in regards to it’s history. And still some architecture reflects the old European style. I guess they needed a little bit of home over here. But there is one special building over here that has nothing to do with the history of the European settlers.

One of the most stunning buildings in my books in Australia, or even in the world, in my books is the Sydney Opera House (find some facts here). I can’t get enough of the building and each time I’m there I feel like it looks different. It’s the different light on the roof of the stunning creation. For sure a must see for visitors.

Sydney Opera House – Did You Know…

play with light morning

… That the architect of Sydney Opera House, Jørn Utzon never saw his finished masterpiece in real life?

He was a relatively unknown 38 year old Dane until January 29, 1957 when his entry, scheme number 218, was announced winner of the ‘International competition for a national opera house at Bennelong Point, Sydney’. With his vision the City of Sydney was to become an international city.

Connect

It is so easy to connect with people nowadays. There are plenty of opportunities. Email, mobile phone, social network, you name it. Still I feel people are no longer really connected or not as connected as they used to be years ago, when a phone call was still a proper phone call, not text messages and a letter was the one thing you’ve waited the most for. Maybe because it got so easy to stay connected we don’t connect on a deep level any longer…

Second Chances? WTF!!!

“The gunman had a history of crime

Monis, 50, is no stranger to the NSW police or the judiciary.

He first came to attention of police when he penned poisonous letters to the family of dead Australian soldiers seven years ago.

Last year he was charged with being an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife, a mother of two.

Most recently, he was charged with more than 50 allegations of indecent and sexual assault relating to time allegedly spent as a self-proclaimed “spiritual healer” who dealt with black magic at a premises in western Sydney more than a decade ago.

It is understood Monday’s incident followed an unsuccessful, last-ditch attempt on Friday to have the case heard in the High Court” The Age

There is not a lot out there that makes me boil over. But there is so much of it in this little bit of text I copied out of the news today.
