I did a lot of walking in Sydney which is fine because I think it’s the best way to see a new city but I was not expecting so many hills. I could have been back home in San Francisco for all I knew and I’m pretty sure my thighs had never felt so rock hard at the end of a trip. Thankfully, the famous Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach walk was pretty flat.
There were some rocks and stair wells to climb and the duration is about 2 and 1/2 hours if you take the time to stop and take pictures, like Sasha and I did, but it wasn’t that hard of a walk. How anyone could just zip through it is beyond me when there is so much natural beauty around you.
It didn’t hurt that the day we went on the walk was pretty much one of the sunniest and warmest days in Sydney during my trip and this was in late fall mind you. It was actually warm enough to sunbathe along with the sparse beach-goers but I didn’t come prepared.
Even so, I still enjoyed the incredibly blue water, the sound of the waves crashing, the warm sun, and the smell of fresh air. When Sasha and I finally, and happily, made it to Coogee Beach we had a much deserved lunch at the Coogee Bay Hotel because honestly, I just work out to break even.
