Nerd Travels // Atura Blacktown Sydney

Growing up in a city, even the interior of this lobby and hotel room gave me goosebumps. As soon as I stepped foot into my room, I thought the fluffy clouds brought me to New York City. Swing TV, king size bed, modern furnishings and Malin & Goetz products were too much to handle. The kitchen was impeccable as well :) Equipped with all sort of appliances you could think of. Okay, not an air fryer or 5 tiered oven but yeah you know the drill.

Since I was in Sydney for a business trip, post working hours were pretty much spent in the room watching movies or at the gym working out. Waking up to the ray of sunshine from the window was undeniably wonderful. Need I mention the coffee machine where I gracefully brew a cup of Americano whilst running my morning routine? Yeap. Heavenly. Check out

Nerd Travels // Food In Sydney // Grano

On our final day in Sydney, it rained so heavily [apparently it was the heaviest rain in Sydney, in 13 years time] and surrounding temperature dropped to a 9. Despite the horrible weather, we managed to grab some good food at Grano before catching a flight to Gold Coast. Since Grano was a stone's throw away, we decided to walk there and it's hilarious because wind was so strong I could barely move! Come on, you know my figure...Anyways, we went for 3 appetizers without a main course and what not. These are what we had for lunch:

~ Salsiccia Con Antipasti Per Due [Italian sausage with Italian small goods for two]

~ Piaito Fritto Per Due [Fried platter for two]

~ Zuppa Di Manzo Con Verdure [Beef soup with vegetables]

Zuppa Di Manzo Con Verdure and Will & Co's cappuccino was definitely a stand-out. Tiny little doughnut looking pasta soaked in hot beef broth with chunks and chunks of vegetables. I tell you, it was brilliant. Who could resist a bowl of hot soup in the bad weather eh? We were actually lucky enough because Zuppa Di Manzo wasn't a permanent dish, just a soup of the day kinda thing. I personally didn't enjoy the 2 other appetizers too much because the flavor was too salty for my palettes. If you are a fan of savory, salty and heavily seasoned food, I bet you would love them : ) Pickled olives, smelly cheese, smoked salami and crispy seafood. I guess everyone is a fan except for me, the party pooper. Hahaha!

Have a nice day <3
