Blue mountains, part 2.

finally I’m done editing all of the photos we took in Katoomba and the mountains. IMG_7984-2we had two days left.IMG_7787 IMG_7775 IMG_7769we continued bushwalking searching for waterfallsIMG_7791 IMG_7797 IMG_7792every now and then, we bumped into breathtaking views and some brick bridgesIMG_7799 IMG_7806we also hid in the bush for a bit, because jess’ head looked a bit like a flowerIMG_7807 IMG_7815 IMG_7812 IMG_7810after about two hours of walking, we reached katoomba falls and a bench. sat down and had some chocolate and talked about everything we’d seen IMG_7827next morning we went up at 5.30 to go for a morning swim. jess’ dad drove us a bit outside town to a place I can’t remember the name of. jess said there was another waterfall there, where we could jump in.IMG_7839IMG_7849 IMG_7841first we went up to a point where you could spot the waterfall from aboveIMG_7865IMG_8022 IMG_8037once going down to the falls, we found a rock pool in the middle of itIMG_7991-3IMG_7990-2so we went inIMG_7965 IMG_7966it was freezing cold I’ll tell yaIMG_7970 IMG_7971 IMG_7972but once you couldn’t feel your body anymore it was alrightIMG_7980 IMG_7981 IMG_7982IMG_7882IMG_7875the sun had fully risen when we needed to get dry so we sat down and waited for a while. tourists came and wondered why we were sitting half naked in the middle of the bush and we didn’t really know what to sayIMG_8039 IMG_8042the signs said that the charles darwin walk would lead us back to the cityIMG_8049 IMG_8050this was so far my favorite walk because it was filled with cute little wooden paths and bridges and riversIMG_8058 IMG_8065 IMG_8063it was a bit longer then we had expected though, and took us 1,5 hours to walk. we were pretty hungry once we got to the cafésIMG_8077IMG_8084time was only 12.30 when we got back to the house which was unreal since I felt like I had lived my entire life that morning. anyway we were super tired from waking up early and after the waterfall dip so we stayed at home for a whileIMG_8081 IMG_8079jess showed me her dads studio and promised to teach me a bit about paintingIMG_8076dreamy roomIMG_8093IMG_8085 IMG_8089 IMG_8090we painted a bit outside where we could find a good light. after that we got even more tired and went back to bed to watch tv-seriesIMG_8092 IMG_8091ida filled up the diary and read ”Thinking fast and slow” which is a book filled with theories about the brain and all of the things and systems we have troubles understandingIMG_8094 IMG_8095that night I made creamy mushroom pasta with asparagus and zucchini IMG_8103 IMG_8104jess also found malibou, coconut cream and some pineapple juice and made us pina coladas. dunno where the luck came fromIMG_8107 IMG_8110we spent the night on the veranda, mainly discussing sweden in comparison to australia. we discussed the aboriginal culture and history and jess told us more about the segregation and racism ongoing in this country. once I’ve gained enough information and knowledge about this area, I will try my best to make a proper post about it. it’s a fascinating and scary story that everybody, a specially in australia should be aware of.

and that was the end of the blue mountains. once again, we went up early next morning to catch the train back to newi. made a quick stop in sydney on the way to go to an arts exhibition by brett whitely but I will tell more about that later.

Free popcorn this way.

imageyesterday morning ida and I woke up and got ready to drive for a couple of hours outside town were we would spend the night bar tending. I really felt like getting outside town and we haven’t seen the countryside in ages imagethe party was themes cirkus and therefore I looked like a combo of a fish and lady gagaimagewe stopped on the way to have lunch and a breezeimagewe arrived to the party. people were wearing sparkles and rainbow colors and there was kids everywhere wellwe found our bunk room and got ready. for a while I felt like I was a kid on camp imagefrom 4 till late we served reds and whites and sparkling and cocktails and juices form a tiny table that was surrounded by people and dogs and other animalswell2 the most important job was prob to pack the candyimageI had a tiny bit of hope that 40 year old people would stop partying after 12 sometime since we wanted to sleep in the bunk beds and get up early for adventures but no. they kept goinimagewe danced the night away thought so it was alright in the endimagewoke up like this today and got scared. ida and I drove back and had coffee on the road.

There’s a cirkus.

imagewoke up close to these people in our tiny bed. we attended a 21st yesterday and the night was hilarious and weird and very long. now, me and ida are getting in a car to drive two hours outside newcastle. all night we’re gonna be bar tending at a 40th themed cirkus. I am very excited at the same time as I’m scared. we got 30 mins to figure out what to wear and the wardrobe is messy. at the same time, this coffee tastes amazing and the day is just about to start and the sky is blue and there is an ocean next to us that we might be able to reach for a swim just before taking of.

wish these gals luck.

If you ever see a horse, please catch it for me.
