It is getting Autumn here
Surry Hills

It is getting Autumn here in Australia, which is weird to imagine for a European girl as the temperatures are still so high that it could be easily Summer. And also weird because we had this long and tough Winter this year so is good that it will become Spring when I am back to the Northern Hemisphere next week.

We have been to Sydney and Melbourne last week and it has been great. Two beautiful cities which were so much fun to explore.
I was enjoying the sun, the walks through Sydney and especially enjoyed the houses and fences in Surry Hills which you can tell on the pictures I took..There are so many nice places you could have good food and coffee at, like the Bourke Street Bakery which seems to be an institution in Sydney or Kawa Cafe on Crown Street for a nice relaxed coffee while the afternoon sun is shining.

We also catched up with friends and had an amazing dinner at Din Tai Fung. Their dumplings are incredibly good and it is a must to go when you are in Sydney.

I hope you all are having a great Sunday...I will post a few images from the great time we had in Melbourne in a couple of days.

Bourke St Bakery is one of my favorite places, we get take away coffee and sit over the road on a bench and people watch, always a great line up there, their bread is the best!!! You have picked the right spot, Surry Hills is one of the best suburbs in Sydney.... I just posted about a couple of stores last night in my Weekend finds post.Hope you had a lovely time
