I have always loved the beautiful grand old sandstone buildings of the Sydney University, but in spring when the jacarandas are in bloom, they look even more picturesque.

This is Sydney University in Sydney, Australia .. the university I could have gone to … but didn’t (long story).

The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
