A few months ago I showed you some photos of Western Australian artist Pippin Drysdale. When we were back in Perth some weeks ago to see Will's family we had another chance for s sneak peak into Pippin's studio, where she works on the most amazing ceramic pots.
We are packing up our apartment this weekend and the weather is helping us with not feeling too bad being inside all day. It is pouring down this morning. I am secretly hoping that we will be able to going for a swim later on in the afternoon.
Hope you are all having a great weekend,

A few weeks back my friend Rosa and I went for a walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens here in Sydney. It was a warm Winters day and you could smell that Spring was just around the corner. We only live 10 minutes away from the gardnes but I know I will miss having this beautiful oasis close by (a lot).

A few weeks back I showed you some photos of a Sunday walk through the Royal National Park. Such a beautiful park, I could imagine to one day camping there and stay for a whole week to explore the bush and swim in the water there. But for now I will have these photos to treasure the good time I had there. Just a few more weeks until our move. It is slowly getting warmer here in Sydney and you can smell that Summer is just around the corner. We already went for several ocean and bay swims and I have a whole lot of more photos to share with you but I am wondering if I should wait until we are in Germany when the weather gets colder and darker and those photos could be little glimpse of warmth and light for myself, too. I will see. I love how my friends Mel's hair matches to the colour of the Banksia, how wide the bush is, all its colours and different grasses, it is one of the things I will miss!
> I came across this tumblr by David Boyson and really enjoy his photography and adventures!

Hello everyone and thank you so much for your lovely comments here and also on Instagram regarding our move back to Germany.
I am so behind with showing photos. These are some I took earlier this year in May when we got our fruit and vegetables at the Local Harvest Collective .
Hope you are all having a nice weekend.

In a few weeks time will we pack up our apartment here in Sydney, say goodbye to dear family & friends and move to the other side of the world! Again. It has been 4,5 amazing years here in Sydney and I am not sure if I have completely processed yet that this is all happening. While writing this my hair is still drying from my early swim, the sun is shining and there is no cloud at the sky. When you followed this blog in the last years you might have seen how special this place is and how fond we are of it. I really do think that Sydney is one of the best places to live. When we tell people about our decision to move we get very often asked why/really/are you sure?
It really is not easy when you call two places home and when those two places are 16,000km away from each other it is particularly hard to keep in touch and be part of people's life you really care about. We realize that we will always be in the situation to leave people & things we love behind us but at the same time we feel very privileged to call Australia and Germany our home. How lucky are we!? But you know, nothing is forever & it is important to be flexible and be open for new ideas and plans and that is what we are trying to do. We are excited to being back in Europe again and look forward to being closer to family and friends we have only seen a few times since I moved here, to more traveling and me speaking a bit more German. :)

The other Sunday Will, Mel and I drove an hour south to go for a bush walk in the Royal National Park. I have been there years ago and have such fond memories of the park, so I looked forward to going back and enjoying the bush and the water at the end of our walk.
>> I really like these photos on the Smith Journal blog and love the project itself even more
