[Photo Gallery] Hyde Park, Sydney

Travel

I’m crazy about outdoor life. I guess I’ve never been an indoor-kind of person. I prefer natural breeze over chilled aircon air, warm sun-lit grassy yard over cold plush beddings, and kids whopping around cheerfully over those sitting nicely in front of TV.

Jakarta does not have lot of this kind of public spaces. That is why I always feel reluctant to leave home in the morning, just when my front and backyard feels best during the day.

When in Sydney last year, I always passed Hyde Park whenever I want to go. This medium-sized park seems to be strategically located so citizens and passers by are left with sense of longing to spend their time in this park.

Jakartans, you can envy this…
