Hyams Beach: The Whitest Sand in the World

Australia has a fast-paced setting, just like what I always say in my book reviews (Haha!πŸ˜‚). If you will not try to cope up and adjust with the people’s way of life here, you will get stuck and find yourself being rattled and left behind. Due to the hustle and bustle of our university life, my friends and I decided to go to the beach after our clinical placement was over. We have searched for beaches near the Australian Capital Territory, so that it will be just a 3 to 4 hours drive. Because of a recommendation and never-ending google searching, we have chosen Hyam’s beach near Jervis bay to be our destination. According to Wikipedia and The Guinness Book of World Records (UNIVERSITY life taught me how important it is to reference someone else’s ideas, lol) Hyams Beach has the whitest and finest sand in the world. Of course, to see is to believe!😳😎
First, let me share our expenses:

Petrol : $70 (Round trip, Baby! Approximately 400 km)

Food (which includes our lunch, drinks, and massive junk-foods) : $60

Vodka : $20

Total: $150 / 5 = $30/each person

See! Very affordable, especially if you will not convert in to Philippine peso. Hehe πŸ™ˆπŸ™ŠπŸ˜

Next, I’ll share with you how our itinerary went. We left ACT at 5:30 am and arrived at New South Wales around 8:30am. It was a very boring, odd, and a bit scary journey because we took the fastest route which is full of forests and rock formations.πŸ˜­πŸ™ˆπŸ™Š

And when we finally arrived there, it was all worth it! The place is so serene and beautiful. The sand is white as snow and the consistency is like the famous delicacy in our country (Philippines) which is polvoron. I am not exaggerating, it is, indeed, perfect. The travel time is definitely worth it. Plus, the weather was very kind to us!😝 It was not too hot so we were able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view.😍

Here are some of our pictures:

We took off at around 2:00 in the afternoon and arrived here at ACT around 5:00pm.😊

If you will ask me if I want to come back? The answer is YES! Absolutely!πŸ’œ

Lake Ginninderra

Hello! I am so so so back from the dead! ItΒ has been a while! My husband and I recently moved in here in Canberra (Australian Capital Territory) because I will be taking up a conversion program for nurses at the University of Canberra for a year (may the odds be ever in my favor, LOL). Anyway, our housemates are very kind enough to spare us a little of their time and accompanied us around the area.

First, we went to Lake Ginninderra.

Lake Ginnindera is a man-made lake located at the Ginninderra Creek. It is home to a large number of wildlife like the black swans, ducks, rakalis and moorhens. Yiheee! There’s a black swan beside me! hihi ^_^v

The lake side has a lot of benches where one can sit, eat or read! Oh yes! I did it. But if it’s winter, well, you have to be very flexible because it’s freezing! O_o.

From now on, this place will be our home. Hopefully, in God’s perfect time, we can bring the kids with us here and we will live happily ever after. haha! Forgive me, I miss my gummy bears terribly and blogging is my only outlet aside from book photography and reading. Okay, ’til my next entry, loves.
xoxo,
