My partner Bruce is at the moment in Sydney, visiting his parents. Unfortunately it's not a holiday. His father is suffering on Parkinson and he had to go to a nursing home because his disease got worse and worse and Bruce's mother was not able to do the care any longer since he really needs care and help 24/7. On the 8th of December he turns also 80, so this makes the trip even more important. I wish I could have gone to my second home Australia too, but it simply was not possible this time, because of the cost of the flight. I love to be in Australia, we spent in 2005 4 months in Sydney and further north in Forster where Bruce's parents live. It is a beautiful little town at the coast, with dream beaches and the lifestyle of a surfers paradise. The images are from Australia, mostly from Sydney, and here from a neighborhood called Newtown, a beautiful place with lots of young people and many, many restaurants, bars and trendy shops.
