Bits & Pieces | Autumn in the city

Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year! The yellow leaves, bright wintry days, and time spent outside crunching through the leaves are some of my favourite memories, so happily, this autumn has been one of finding little moments like that. So, here’s autumn’s bits and pieces.

First yellow tree of the season back in late September, it was so bright and vivid.

A solo trip to the park that my family lovingly refer to as the ‘hill park’, it’s based beside a major road going into the city but has beautiful ponds, hills and views of the city skyline.

My friend Rowena and I have made a tradition of walking in the countryside every week for an hour or two. It’s such a nice break from the city and we have been finding lots of new places to explore. One sunny day in October, we packed lunch with us, and sat a top a hillside to eat it while taking in the views.

St Pauls from the roof of One New Change – such a cool perspective of the city – a great place to go if you want a (free!) view from up high – just take the lift in the middle of the shopping centre to the top level!
