​What´s up sweeties! Here we are… We are standing in front of a 65-meter-long building that attracts approximately 8 million visitors every year (plus two from now). The opera is known because of its roofs that looks like a shell. Surprisingly the opera is designed by Jörn Utzon. He is from our neighborhood, Denmark. The building is not so old; the work began in 1958 and the opera house opened in 1973 after 15 years of hard work. It also consists of three parts: the podium, the roof and the interiors. But none of them are giving place to the concert. The concert is placed outside, next to the opera and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The view is amazing. It´s almost nine, the show will start soon. All these lights make us to believe that we are in heaven. The dominating colors are blue and white just like the sky. Here must be thousands of people who are waiting. Everyone is exciting. Here they come, the concert officially began…

After three hours of listening to the best boy band we are on our way back to the hotel. The concert was fascinated. These guys stole everyone´s heart. We took a last selfie with the Opera house and the Harbour bridge behind us. It´s time to say goodbye. Both Frida and I are very thankful for this trip to Australia. We have lots of good memories that we will never forget. We also want to say thank you to the readers that you followed us. Lots of love guys!!

​What´s up sweeties! Today we are in Sydney again. We only have two days here in Australia and Frida and I thought that nothing could be better than going to the Opera house. But why? Well, tonight the Fall out boy will give a concert in the Opera house. I am sure that this last night is going to be amazing so we have to prepare ourselves. Firstly, we will go around in the Opera house a little bit but after… We can´t wait to see the Fall out boy, so don´t go anywhere. We will come with the newest updates about our trip. Lots of love!!

What´s up sweeties! Today Encsi and I were at the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney. The garden is located in the heart of Sydney and is a major botanical garden. The garden in New South Wales opened in 1816 and is the eldest scientific institution in all Australia and one of the furthermost significant historic botanical institution all over the world. Its magnificent location on Sydney harbor and instantaneously adjacent to the Sydney dominant business area, the Sydney opera house and the great public parks of the domain guarantee it is one of the top two most visited attractions. This garden had a zoo once, it was Sydney´s first zoo and operated from 1862 until 1883 in the gardens. 1883 most of the zoo was relocated to Moore park. The garden arrangements a great natural amphitheater, covering 30 hectares, enfolded around and leaning down near the farm cove. The garden is divided into four main areas known as the lower gardens, the palace gardens, the middle gardens and the Bennelong precinct. Surrounded by the four main areas, there are several minor gardens and features big amount of lightly wooded lawn regions. The palm grove center is located approximately between all the four main areas, the palm grove center offers café, bookshop, a restaurant and visitors center. The single utmost distinct landscape in the garden is the extraordinary hand-hewn sandstone seawall. It bends around farm cove from the opera house to Mrs. Macquarie´s point, outlining the harbor from the garden and provides a focal point for joggers, photographers and visitors. I would highly recommend to come and visit the royal botanic garden because you get to experience and see a beautiful place. You get to see beautiful buildings and nature; it will leave you speechless.

Lots of love from Australia!!

​What´s up sweeties! Today Encsi and I were at The Great Barrier Reef. Can you guys believe that we just were at the world´s major coral reef system? Which is composed of above 2 900 individual reefs and the reef´s broadening is over 2 300 kilometers. The area that the barrier reef is up taking is approximately 344 400 . The location of this amazing reef is the coral sea, outside the cost of Queensland. We did a lot of incredible stuff, firstly we went on a helicopter ride over the heart reef, the heart reef is a reef in the great barrier reef which has the shape of a heart. Secondly we parachute over all of the barrier reef, from up above we got an excellent view of not only the reef but also the rainforest and the cost. In the end of the parachute, we landed at the mission beach. It was an amazing experience to see so much of Queensland and it was so much fun! I highly recommend all of you to go visit Queensland and go parachute. Finally, we went diving. We were out diving during the evening and night in addition we got to see a big part of the great barrier reef during our diving trip, moreover, I make no bones about that it was quit cold in the water, it was barely 22 degrees Celsius.

The barrier reef supports a multiplicity of life, in addition several vulnerable or endangered species. Furthermore, some of the species might be endemic to the system. However, the climate is changing, which together with pollution and fishing are the threats that primary threatens the health of the great barrier reef system. Oil spills and tropical cyclones are other threats including shipping accidents. According to the national academy of science a study done by them 2012, since 1985, the reef has lost approximately half of its corals with the loss of two-thirds from 1998.

Now you know why this was important for us to see, it is fading away. Lots of love!!

​What´s up sweeties! Today is 25th April. Frida and I took the train from Sydney to Canberra. I did not have any idea that it takes nearly five hours… After a very early start here we stand in our hotel room and remember the beautiful moments that made our first day so amazing and also emotional. You may not know that today is not a usual day. Today is the ANZAC-day. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The history behind this day goes back to the First World War. In 1914 Australia has been united under the British government for 13 years ago. When the First World War broke out Australia was automatically placed on the entente´s side. The first, bigger invasion started on 25th April when Australian and New Zealand military landed on Gallipoli peninsula (Turkey). After eight months of bloody fight they have lost against Turkey and 25th April became the day when both Australia and New Zealand celebrate the soldiers that sacrificed their lives in the First World War.

As I mentioned we had to wake up early because of the Dawn ceremony that began around five o´clock and everyone started to sing the Australian hymns. The reason why the ceremony began so early, also goes back to the war. One part of the army´s routine was always being prepared before the dawn in case someone or some group will attack the army. This is the reason why the veterans are full-prepared at Dawn ceremony. After the hymns comes the one minute´s silence for every soldiers that died in the war. Lastly the people have a big breakfast together. 25th April is the day when the people can say thank you to the army for sacrificing their lives. Because of them Australians can be here today in a free, democratic country. 25th April is about the Australians that can identify themselves as one nation that always will exist in their hearts. This day is so much about the mateship, sacrifice and the courage. This is the most important thing that we learned today, how to love your nation as much as Australians do. Lots of love from us!!
