Travel Diary: Sydney Part 1

After our 9 day long cruise, we arrived back to Sydney, Australia on December 8th. We arrived in the morning and my boyfriend, my dad and I got up at 5 am to watch the arrival from up on deck. Arriving at Sydney by ship while the sun rises is not something you do every…

Travel Diary: At Sea Part 2

When we sailed away from Lifou, we had two days at sea before we got back to Australia. I was almost as bad at taking photos during these days at sea as I was on the first two days of this cruise. One morning though, I decided to go on a little photography stroll. I…

Travel Diary: Lifou

Let’s go back to my cruise around the Pacific Ocean which I went on in December! My mom scolded me last week for “uploading rainy Stockholm photos” when she wanted to see more photos from our trip, haha! So on behalf of my mother, here is our fourth and last stop of the cruise –…

Travel Diary: Nouméa

Travel Diary: At Sea

After less than 24 hours in Sydney, it was time for us to head out at sea! We were going on a cruise with Royal Caribbean on the ship Radiance of the Seas to the islands Vanuatu and New Caledonia. It’s quite far between Sydney and Noumea, which were our first stop in New Caledonia,…
