A Day With No Plans

June 20, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This morning I woke up and had nothing scheduled on my calendar. For those who know me well, this is an unheard of occurrence. 

It started out with a run up Oxford Street and through Centennial Park. The weather was so agreeable I knew I wanted to stay outdoors, so I decided to sit outside a newly discovered cafe in Surry Hills called Boulanger. What a wonderful decision that turned out to be. I was not the only one to realise this place was a gem because once I ordered the line was out the door!

After indulging my taste buds I figured it was only natural to go on a walk. I may have overdone it because Mapmyrun.com later let me know I walked over 10 miles. Here's where I went:

I was on my way to the Sydney Harbour Bridge when I saw The Rocks was hosting a Foodies Market. I was still full from the cafe, but I did walk around and enjoy the sights and smells.

I continued to the Harbour Bridge and climbed the 200 steps up to Pylon's Lookout. Well worth the $10 entrance fee, the views are beautiful.

Then across the bridge I went. 

Once I got to the other side, I figured I was pretty close to Luna Park and I might as well visit.

My feet started to ache a bit then, but catching the ferry back was going to cost me a few dollars so I dragged my cheap butt back across the bridge. Walking across the bridge cost me to miss the last free shuttle through the city though... so I just kept walking. That is when I remembered it was Friday and Chinatown has a market every Friday evening. I decided to visit a few food stalls and plant myself on a bench to refuel.

I finally made it home and although my feet are sore, it was a beautifully spontaneous day.
