Achieved in Sydney, ALONE!

Travelling alone is one of the things I want to experience before I get married.
Achievement and bragging right para sa akin. 

Last June 2014, I got a job offer from one of the biggest Travel Agencies here in Singapore. Fortunately, I got the pass/ working visa.
So I guess, this calls for a celebration! 
break break break! 
Scoot and Jestar are calling me. 
So I let myself be swayed. 

I immediately thought of visiting my family in Melbourne enroute to Sydney. 
Applied for the visa and got it after 7 days.

Here I come! ALONE!

I was so ecstatic travelling all by myself. Eto na to!
Kaya lang, habang papalapit, natatakot na ako. There’s this mix emotions. Natatakot ako sa mga pwedeng mangyari. Ayaw kong mag isip ng mga nakakatakot pero alam ko sa sarili ko na  naduduwag ako.
Pero ang inisip ko din, 1st world country naman yun. 
I’m not a baby anymore. I’m a grown woman. Kaya ko to!

Ayun oh! bye Singapore for the meantime :)

ang mga supporters ko 
the double decker train. Amazing! 
how it looks inside
Got of the train..
Saw the Opera House and the harbour Bridge
“Ah eto pala yun. Thank you Lord, thank you! . Big smile :)"
It’s still fresh until now and I won’t forget that moment. 

Upon arriving in Sydney, jumped to the train to the city proper. God blessed me with this man I met in the train ticketing area. He handed me his 7 day city pass because he needed to leave the city that day and that card can still be used.
Pass for ferries, buses and trains. Ayos to. Savings :) 

So now, I’m confident to take any bus and trains around the city. Kahit magkaligaw ligaw, I can find my way, for FREE. 
Good start.
(I still bought my train ticket from Airport to Central though at AU$ 17/ pax )

I went to the Central Station to leave my big luggage at the SmarteCarte for 24+8 hours = AU$15+AU4 12 = AU$27. Aray, ansakit. 
But I needed to. I just brought with me my backpack to move easier.

I took the train to Circular Quay, the nearest train station to The Rocks where my hostel is.
Got amazed with their double decker trains.

When I reached Circular Quay, the first thing I saw is the Opera House.
I remember my reaction.

I made it!  ALONE :) 

kailangan talaga ihighlight na mag isa ako. haha
