Bondi Beach Dreaming




I miss the beach. It’s been a while since I’ve allowed myself to be devoured by the sea. My Siargao adventure seems like a lifetime ago; and my best laid plans– going to Busuanga for some bit of exploration was laid to waste by typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng. I can’t really grumble that much over the last part seeing that a lot of my countrymen lost a lot more than my travel plans.

It's not just the beach!

It's not just the beach!

With the currently unpredictable weather here in this country, I am thinking of going somewhere more sunny, somewhere beyond the 7,107 islands of the Philippines. You know, somewhere like Bondi Beach; that very popular beach in the land down under. I’d probably have to apply for an Austrailian visa, but that’s a very small thing to hurdle. Besides, it’s not like I’m gonna apply for a working visa. God knows how difficult getting one of those can be. I’ve heard a lot of heartbreaking stories about applying for those things.

In my case, a simple tourist visa will do just fine.

I’m sure that there are other beaches outside the country that are probably more sunnier or more exotic than Bondi Beach but something about this particular beach appeals to me. Maybe it’s just the things that I’ve read; like how many movies have been made in this beach, or maybe it’s just the simple fact that a few friends who are living in Sydney have offered to shoulder all my expenses when I’m there, saying that all I had to do was show up. That, I have to say, is a very tempting offer.

Cost of Going To Bondi Beach

However, I do have to pay for my transportation expenses though which means that I will have to shell out around US$1,000 (inclusive of taxes) for the round trip fare if I decide to fly via Philippine Airlines. Too bad that Cebu Pacific doesn’t have a flight to Sydney just yet. I’m sure it would be a lot more inexpensive. But I have I do have a lot of time still to come up with that money. I just have to lessen some of my expenses here and there.

Oh well, anyone can dream.

    Anyway, assuming a round, 12-hour clock and 60 minute “race”, note that the faster hand moves at, roughly, 2.79 times the rate of the slower hand.

    Bondi beach is a popular beach in the suburb of Bondi, New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Bondi beach is a surfer's dream. Hot sizzling sun, surf shops, great high sweeping waves. Bondi beach is excellent for any purpose. Especially surfing, sunbaking and beach volleyball.
