Virgin Blog

Today was a stunningly beautiful warm autumn day in Sydney, 26 degrees and it’s almost mid-May. Of course Bondi just shone.

Great day to be starting this blog.

You could say I’m a Bondi girl…I was born in Bondi, grew up in Bondi and I still live in Bondi. There have been a couple of years here and there, where I lived in nearby suburbs, but even then spent so much of my time in Bondi that I would say I have pretty much been a Bondi local all of my life. My roots are in Bondi and many of my friends and family live here and grew up here so I’ve always had a very strong relationship to this place.

The beach looked so inviting today, not many people on the beach at all and the water was a lovely aqua colour.

I had my heart set on getting into the water for a swim today but ended up having to finish some work up and of course the end of the day arrived way too quick. bugger!!

    Hi Ms Bondi

    I really enjoyed reading your posts about Bondi. My parents lived in Bondi when my brother was born and as children we visited often. I’ve spent the odd day sunning myself on Bondi Beach and enjoyed the famous walk between Bondi and Bronte. I even completed the City to Surf with my own babe in tow, a great experience.

    Thanks for the read.

    Hi Carolyn

    Thanks for sharing some of your Bondi memories. This is what I’m wanting this blog to do – to encourage others to share their personal Bondi memories and experiences, etc.

    Thanks too for flagging two key Bondi features – the beautiful Bondi to Bronte walk and the annual City to Surf event.

    Please keep visiting 🙂

    I couldn’t agree more. I grew up and have lived in or near Bondi all my life, apart from two years near Glebe. I know there are lots of fantastic places to live in Sydney – but for me, getting through those two summers without that lovely sea breeze was a killer!!!!
