Manly Beach, Sydney :)

Sailing boat in Manly bay in Sydney Australia

Manly Beach in Sydney is the first Aussie beach I have ever been to :) it has been a pretty epic moment for me and I will always consider Manly as “my” Australian beach. When I was there it was (supposed to be) winter but the weather was warm and lovely and feeling more similar to a European spring than a real winter … nature is beautiful down under !Enjoy :) xx
