SYDNEY 2017 

My lovely husband Robby Sinclair plays drums for Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker), and the band was scheduled to play three sold out nights at the Sydney Opera House for the Vivid Festival. Needless to say, I couldn't miss that – I had always dreamt of seeing a show at this mythical venue, so when Robby told me he was playing there with Nick, it was sort of a no brainer. Anyhow, this was my first time in Sydney and I fell in love with the city straight out of the airport. My dear sister Aurélia, who lives in New Zealand, came to meet us there for a long weekend. Below are a few polaroids of the last hang with the Nick Murphy crew, and a few 'candid' family shots. But most importantly, here is the list of my favorite places in Sydney:
