nicolaus and i took a day trip to the blue mountains with my aunt and uncle, lauren and frances. we managed to choose the busiest day of the year and spent about 3 full hours just waiting in lines for tickets and cableways and the steepest train in the world! but it was all such a good time and so, so pretty that it was entirely worth it. plus it's always nice to spend time with family that you don't see enough of! and there's the cutest little town so close to the blue mountains, and we ate at an incredibly delicious cafe with the best view afterwards! it was a lovely, lovely day. lines and all :)
