What a day! I woke up at the crack of dawn to try Parkrun in Sydney. I am not a morning person, and it was already way too warm for me (after all, I am British too!). That said, I needed to stick to my training plan -more about this in another post. In London, Parkrun (a 5k run) always started at 9 am. I found out that in Sydney, it’s 7 or 8am. Bummer.

I took the Tube to St Peters, and of course I got lost. Long story short: suddenly I was in a parallel universe. It was May Lane and continued on Caroline Lane, and, as far as I could understand it, it was an outdoor gallery featuring an array of work. Some looked legal, but many looked, well, a bit improvised. All were stunning. I felt like I was in a comic strip. I was literally walking in my very own comic strip.

It was a bit surreal. I wandered around the empty streets. It wasn’t for the faint hearted.

My head hurt a bit. There was just too much to look at:


I managed to run (it wasn’t an easy Parkrun. A bit too hilly for me…), but I couldn’t take the street art out of my head.


As you know, I am a sucker for street art. I lived in the 13th district territory, and at the time it was the territory of the legendary Miss Tic:

It’s the small things that matter, and this made my day. I can’t way to find other gems!
