Not Blue in the Blue Mountains

Everybody has that one place that they love to go that feels comfortable and relaxing when it’s time for a break. For me, this place is the Blue Mountains. It’s far enough away that the feeling of the busy city is paused, but close enough that we can make the trip back and forth in one day, getting there in time for breakfast.

A relaxing hour and a half drive later listening to music, we drove down the Leura main street and to Zest café for breakfast. Porridge and chai latte for me: it was okay – not incredible but good enough. This was followed by a relaxing walk up and down the street, popping into bookstores, kitchenware shops and another café for a takeaway coffee. Some photos with a pretty mural later, it was time for high tea!

Since the renovation of the Hydro Majestic, it’s always been an incredible place to visit. We sat down to high tea and were quickly served with incredible towers of finger sandwiches, tartlets and scones – my favourite. Accompanied by a lovely cup of tea, there is nothing I’d rather do on a Sunday.

Following this delicious adventure, we wandered around in some antique shops, grabbed a coffee and took a drive following the sunset to a lookout. After almost getting lost on a hilltop, the day came to an end and we drove calmly back into Sydney, eating chocolate and listening to Tchaikovsky.

What a stunning day! There is nothing quite like a spontaneous road trip! Comment down below any spontaneous adventures you’ve taken and we can all share in the excitement!
