Homie of the Day: Amy

Today Farrell is hooking us up with a little interview she did with one of her best friend’s, and Albert’s sister, Amy.  Though Farrell met Amy and Albert when they were in college in Colorado, their family is originally from Australia, and now Amy lives there.  Miss you guys!  -Lauren

How long have you been in Sydney?  And what brought you here?

Just over 2 years!  I transferred to my company’s Sydney office, but coming back to Australia was something I had always planned for myself at some stage.

What is your idea of the perfect Sydney day?

A tough question…but I would start out in the suburb of Kirribilli for breakfast, and then walk over the Harbour Bridge. From there, I would head to the beach – probably either Bronte or Bondi- to meet some friends for a morning swim. I would then head to Rose Bay for a paddle board on Sydney Harbour. As the sun goes down, it would be time to head to the pub or RSL for a few ciders, before continuing the night at some of my favourites spots in Paddington or Surry Hills.

Where is your favorite place to eat?  Favorite thing to eat?

Seafood anything, and in any format.  Also Australian baked goods, meat pies and sausage rolls. In summertime, I could live on a box of mangoes.

What makes Sydney different from other big cities?

The beach culture is incredible considering how close you are to the CBD, and life revolves around the beaches. Even after two years, there are so many I have yet to explore!

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I have checked a few places off the list already this year, but would like to make it to western Europe very soon. I have many friends from England and Ireland, and would love to go practice my French in Paris as well.
