I’m indulging my love of art — sculpture in particular — with a visit to Sydney to see Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi.
This involved a five am start to catch my flight, which was surprisingly not full and I had a whole row of seats to stretch out in.
I’m staying in a new hotel, in a part of town I’ve never been to before. So far, so awesome.
One of the cool things about The Collectionist is that all the rooms are designed by local artists — and they are all different. The other cool thing is that you get to choose your room. I had a choice of three and picked The Santa Rosa Suite. I’ll give you a peep inside tomorrow.
I’m not sure if it’s a legacy of my recent cold, or a sign that I’m getting old, but the last time I came to Sculpture by the Sea three years ago, I headed straight from checking in to Bondi Beach and walked the sculpture trail to the end at Tamarama Beach (and then walked back).
Today, I felt too tired to face the 12km bus trip to Bondi, let alone a 3km (return) walk around the exhibition, so I’m saving my energy for tomorrow.
Instead I’ve been exploring the neighbourhood and back towards the CBD, where I found dinner at Fishbowl.

I will update the blogroll with links to your posts whenever I am able to, but I may be a little slower than usual.
