Explore Sydney, Australia in 24 Hours

Our ANZ Trip last 2017 was our first long-haul flight ever and we were supposed to spend at least two (2) full days in Sydney, Australia if only we have double checked our flight schedule --we thought our flight was the day after but it was the night before! To make the long story short, we had to rebook our flight ASAP (goodbye hard-earned money) AND endure the 6-8 hour layover at Malaysia as a consequence. But hey, 24 hours in Sydney (not to mention in a tighter budget!) is still possible and you too can visit the following all in a day's worth.

1. Featherdale Wildlife Park - I specifically wanted to touch a Koala bear and spot a Kangaroo and Wallaby in Sydney and I know I will be happy and solved. Period. The original plan was to visit the Taronga Zoo but according to our research, the zoo requires ferry ride (tickets at Circular Q) and will probably need to allocate one (1) full day to explore because it's BIG and quite pricey too at AUD 52.5 or about Php 2,100 per person. So, we headed to Featherdale Wildlife Park instead early in the morning around 9 am and commuted via bus for an hour one way. 

We actually have no clue where exactly is the park located but you can always inform the bus driver to prompt you if it's time to go down Featherdale. Luckily, there were a lot of tourists in our bus at that time and we knew we've arrived at our destination soon as everyone else went down the bus. You should be able to see this big sign (see picture below) and just go straight the ticketing booth inside. 

Ticket for 1 adult is AUD 32.00 but we got additional discount because of a coupon I found inside a tourist booklet (TIP!!!) so we only paid AUD 25.6 or Php 1,024 per person. Children ages 3-15 is only AUD 17 and you can also have family discounts see price list here.

Australia and New Zealand 2017 DIY Travel Video

Sharing our epic 13-day trip to Australia and New Zealand DIY travel video!

This is my favorite video (so far) because my Fiancé leveled up his video editing techniques :) from the user friendly GoPro Video maker now to Adobe Premier Pro where he learned the software in a day (naks!).

We also used a combination of GoPro Hero Black 3+, Apple iPhone 7 and Samsung Note 5 cellphone to achieve cinematic shots because GoPro videos does not have a zoom feature. 

Anyway, please watch our DIY video here, ENJOY! >> click here <<

How to Apply for a New Zealand Tourist Visa Online for Filipinos

I mentioned in my previous blog that my fiancé and I went on an epic 13 day Australia-New Zealand adventure and to date, it is one of the most memorable trip. I got my Australian visa in a week thanks to its super efficient online services but New Zealand is much faster as I got my MULTIPLE TOURIST VISA in just 3 days.

Here are steps on how to apply for a New Zealand Tourist Visa Online for Filipinos:

1) Go to the New Zealand Website  and create a RealMe Account

In the upper right hand corner of the website, click Login and click create a RealMe Account. RealMe is a secure online ID that allows you to login to a wide range of New Zealand Government services using just one username and password. All notifications and grant visa letters will be sent through this portal so always make a habit to check your account for updates.

Once you have your RealMe Account, you can create, update, or save your application until you are ready for submission and payment.
