Zoos are one of the most amazing places on earth, and they make you realize how you're actually not that amazing and cool because so many of the animals that live on this earth are absolutely gorgeous!
I think Amal and I both fell in love with a zoo situated in Sydney called Taronga Zoo. To get there, you have to ride a ferry for about 15-20 minutes so that part is already quite exciting. The place is well maintained, and the animal enclosures look cozy and approachable. I initially really wanted to go to see the koalas but I got so much more than I asked for because all the animals were amazing. I fell in love with an animal I had never heard of before called the fennec fox, an adorable cute little fox with long pointy ears. It was sleeping at the time we got to its enclosure but you can see Amal below posing between it's ears :)
Anyway, if you happen to go to Sydney for some holidays, please make some time to go to this wonderful zoo.

Talking about zoos, there's a movie I saw recently that I have fallen in love with called "We Bought A Zoo" by Cameron Crowe. Check out the trailer and go find the DVD!


I know I've been extremely lucky this year to be able to travel twice already and it's practically still the beginning of 2012. I've been desperately wanting to pay a visit to Adri & Sissy in Sydney since they moved there, more so because I've never been to Australia so when Air Asia announced they finally fly to Sydney (and also because Adri & Sissy are hoping to move soon), I thought it's now or never. Though I will be repaying the plane tickets probably till sometime in 2013, it was all worth it!!!
Sydney is an amazing city with happy, healthy people. The weather was so nice when we were there, sometimes warm, sometimes breezy. We ate a lot of nice food, had some picnics here and there, visited some museums and best of all (I think Amal and my favorite destination), we went to Taronga Zoo. I'll do a special post on that because it is quite an amazing place. 
The photos below are just a few pics I took when we were there...
