CIUDAD: Bondi from where I stand

Bondi beachIt’s a new year! And it starts with sunshine and warmth in the South of the world.  We thought we’d start this year with some inspiration for your travels. Our homes, our cities are some of the best in the world.  Here’s a spot for your 2016 Bucket list:

“Bondi Beach is one of Australia’s most famous beaches and well-known worldwide. It has probably featured on more postcards and more television shows and films than any other in Australia.

Each year tens of thousands of people, from backpackers to billionaires, take to the golden sands of this wide, one-kilometre long city beach expanse to walk, jog, or just soak up the sun. Being only 10 kilometres from the city centre, Bondi Beach is one of Sydney’s busiest beaches. There’s a host of events held here all year round from community art shows to city to surf running marathons”.
