A Short Visit to Cloud Break

If you would like to stay away a few days from your busy routine, I suggest taking some time off away from the city:  simply going to the country, watching the clouds, or feeling the sea breezes. People are more interested in the beaches than the bushes in Australia. It is true that there are many beautiful beaches (think of Manly and Bondi) where you can take a...

Jenolan Caves are located about 60km drive south of Katoomba.  Katoomba is one of the beautiful towns in Blue Mountains in the west of the city of Sydney and a place you can take a break. But we could not believe it took almost 45 minutes meandering through the winding roads on an average speed of 40kph. The entrance of Jenolan Caves is gorgeous.  There are 11 show...
