Day 56 of the Nowhere To Be Project began in the Newtown suburb of Sydney, Australia. The area is easily accessible from downtown Sydney by train and offers a strong hippy vibe. The streets are full of shopping and dining venues with many of the restaurants focusing on vegan food. I fell in love with two boutiques: Social Clothing and Origami Doll. Social Clothing uses donated fabric remnants to create original designs. Their method prevents the fabric from ending up in landfills. I especially loved that the designers and seamstresses are visible in house! Origami Doll offers very unique and kitschy designs that put me in a fun Hello Kitty mood. Be sure to visit Newtown if you find yourself in Sydney!
After Newtown we jumped on the train and headed back to Circular Quay where we enjoyed cocktails at an outdoor bistro at Ivy. Ivy is a large venue with pubs, bistros, video games and a swimming pool. It is a literal oasis in the middle of Sydney and is a must see for sure!
Tomorrow ends our stay in Sydney. It has been a busy five days. We walked from corner to corner, traveling nearly forty miles on foot. We also enjoyed the affordability and efficiency of the public transportation. Sydney’s people and sights help to make it a destination worth visiting.
