If you read this blog often enough, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Sydney's Northern Beaches. This short stretch of golden sand beaches and salt water lagoons stole my heart six years ago and I’ve remained here ever since.
Occasional traffic snarls, barefoot bogans and the high cost of living aside, it’s a remarkable little corner of New South Wales offering outstanding natural beauty and idyllic beachside living less than ten kilometres from Australia’s largest city and I'm privileged to call it my home.
So pack your bags, order some travel money, and stock up on the sunscreen because I’m taking you, the reader, on a whirlwind tour of my favourite spots in this beautiful environment that I call home.

I’ve written a guest post for a series called I Love My Neighbourhood on the site of Edna Zhou, an American expat currently living in Paris. Edna describes herself as a serial expat travelling the world by living in a different city every year and her blog is proving to be a hit amongst both the expat and Paris community.
In I Love My Neighbourhood, Edna asks expats from across the globe to share the joys of the local life they’ve found in their corner of the world so I was more than happy to oblige.
If you like the sound of exquisite espresso coffee served less than two streets back from the water or if a tour around the picturesque beach village of Avalon takes your fancy, head on over to I Love My Neighbourhood: Sydney’s Northern Beaches right now and enjoy a unique taste of Australian beachside living from the comfort of your very own home.
