Sydney – the city of straight talking kids
Sydney is the city that everyone has heard of. Like many other cities Sydney has the architecture, famous landmarks and culture that everyone craves. To compliment this, the city is built around harbours, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Blue Mountains and to top it off, leads out to the famous Bryon Bay beach, renowned for surfing and kite flying.
Sydney has all you need to make it a place you would never leave. But what really finishes this place off for me is its constant energy and vibe from the young residents. Being one myself there is something very exhilarating about seeing straight talking kids (I use this word with a sprinkle of dramatic license). In Sydney these kids are not only one step ahead but the topic they focus on is one of my particular loves, food. Youth Food Movement is a group of 20-30 year olds from all walks of life who are passionate about food. They focus is where there food comes from, who made, how much it costs and the best way to cook it. Yep these guys are clued up on food and are creative on how they share their knowledge. Lately they have run ‘Reel Food Nights’ where they share their knowledge on food through film nights. Complete with Sydney’s own Veggie Patch Van. A food truck that specialises in vegetarian food produced in sustainable ways.
But one I am keen to join is the ‘Ride on Lunch’ event. If you have been following us on Instagram you notice I love to cycle around the cities the tour has visited so I was super excited when I saw this event.
Ride on Lunch is a day of cycling around Sydney to the best markets and food joints followed by a picnic lunch in the park with the goodies purchased on the ride. The ride will serve you up the best knowledge of sustainable food joints in Sydney with a side potion of examples in how easy it is to live more sustainable, finished off with a dollop of site seeing! Sounds like the best way to lunch in the city.
Yep, Sydney you are smooth and sophisticated with an air of sustainability and straight talking kids. Just how I like my cities and one I’d like to stay in.
