Love At First Hop



Sydney is an amazing place to visit with a lot to be explored and discovered. If not for the vast food culture, gardens to explore, countless beautiful beaches, endless shopping, and picturesque views, then the charming accents, beautiful people and kangaroos will surely win your heart. I will never forget the first time I saw the glistening harbor next to the iconic Sydney Opera House. I spent 7 days in this City and found myself wishing I had more time. YES, it’s expensive compared to the United States; but in the end it is worth the long airplane ride to be introduced to this vibrant and refreshing new way of living.

One of the things that stood out about Sydney is that the government enforces priorities that support the people who live there. For example: free healthcare, adequate homeless assistance, affordable Eastern medicine alternatives, gun control, a wide-range of public transportation options, work and life balance support and considerable measures to ensure safety while drinking alcohol. Every country has their issues, but, in my opinion, how and

what a country prioritizes is seen in the spirit, warmth and positive attitudes of the people themselves. The kindness and openness I experienced will stay with me forever.

I had a great time editing this video and reminiscing on the wonderful time I had. It makes me smile and laugh going through the footage A big thank you to the warm souls I met along the way. Our conversations and interactions were the icing on the cake. Truly, it makes traveling alone, feel not alone at all. Thank you to @acrojam Sydney! I had so much fun at your event; and the biggest thank you to the Kangaroos, you won my heart at first HOP!


Much love and thank you for allowing me to share this chapter of my life. Have a wonderful rest of the week. To see more videos, please subscribe to my YouTube channel and blog on my homepage :)
