Watching the Stars in Byron Bay, Australia

Hello from Sydney, Australia!

I am finally staying in a hostel that has free internet access so I am now able to upload something. The past few weeks have been amazing, though I am really sad that I have to go back home quite soon. However, I travelled the whole East Coast from Cairns to Sydney and experienced some amazing things and saw beautiful places as Byron Bay.


We rented a station wagon from Brisbane to Sydney and stayed on a campground in Byron, where we met some awesome Australian guys who showed us the town and spend two days with us. One night we drove up to the famous lighthouse and watched the sunset, which was really beautiful.
Next to the lighthouse there is a path that leads to the easternmost point of the mainland of Australia in Cape Byron.


This post is probably more about the pictures than the text, but to be honest, I think I am better at taking pictures than at writing.
However, I love how these pictures turned out, since some of them have that old camera look I really like. I had to turn up the ISO which created this look, it was just too dark for my lens out there!
I loved running around, watching the ocean and listening to all the animals around us.
It may sound very cliché but watching the ocean really calms me down and I could spend hours doing it. (I think I will miss this a lot when I am back home…)


Speaking of going home, I am still not quite sure what will happen to this blog after I have published all my travel posts, do not worry – I still have loads of things up my sleeve!
I will go to University in October and I do not get paid to travel so I will probably continue using this blog for photography and personal things, as well as for occasional travel posts. By the way, I have a “project“ going on which has something to do with the United States, but I do not want to go into detail, since nothing is fixed yet.
However, I guess I will just use this blog as my creative space, maybe also for writing and arts or even for university and book stuff. I like the idea of having a creative space where I can express myself. That is what blogs are for, right?


Even though it breaks my heart that my amazing journey is almost over, I am so excited for the upcoming months, I have so many plans, dreams and wishes and I also like the thought of spending some months with my family before I will move out.
Additionally, my friend and I are already planning our next Australia and New Zealand trip, we want to do the Great Ocean Road, visit Melbourne and do the Kiwi Experience in New Zealand.
I am sure I will write some additional posts about my other travel plans. I am simply obsessed with planning…


However, I hope you enjoyed these pictures, especially the last one. After we had returned from the lighthouse, I laid down next to our tent and watched the stars until one in the morning, it was so beautiful! To be honest, my camera managed to photograph even more stars than I actually saw which is so magical! I love to watch the stars, it is so thrilling to think about all the things we do not know about the universe…

Greetings from a happy Sophie!

  1. Die Bilder sind alle so so wunderschön! Wahnsinnig tolle Farben und Byron Bay ist natürlich auch so so fotogen 😀
    Echt schade und wahnsinn, wie schnell die Zeit vergeht! Aber mir geht es ähnlich wie dir, das Planen und Träumen und die Vrofreude sind fast genauso schön wie das eigentlich Reisen selbst 😀 Ich liebe das auch total!
    Hoffentlich klappt das mit deinen USA Plänen! 🙂 Ich drück die Daumen 🙂
    Und genieß deine restliche Zeit ❤

      Vorfreude ist die beste Freude!!! Ich freue mich schon so auf deine Berichte aus Australien 😊❤️
      Ich hoffe auch, werde es so im April erfahren 😊
      Dankeschön ❤️

  2. Same here. It may sound cliche but be watching the ocean especially on sunset makes me calm. I just love the view, you captured it surreal and beautiful. Counting stars at night is somehow childish but it’s a good thing to do too. Australia is a must visit but before you could enter the country you must have a visa with you. Anyhow, just in case you need a travel visa you may apply it here Surely, I will visit Byron Bay for my next visit.
