Blue Mountain Trip


A de-stressed overnight trip after the Boxing day, off we went to Wenthworth Falls (Blue Mountain), approximately 2 hours drive from Sydney. Weather was not great around Christmas, temperature dropped to 10 degrees mark even though it was summer. We were in shorts and cardigan, seriously under equipped in terms of clothing. It was very foggy (felt like I was in Harry Potter movie or some sort) around afternoon to night time, rainy, windy and everyone slept with their electric blanket on. Summer ... ??

Few places we visited:

Wayzgoose Cafe @ Leura
