Uplift Universe Challenge....too late T.T

I came back to Germany one week ago. The vacation was amazing even if I became terribly sick the last two days. ^^
I was very busy the last week...! Anyways unfortunately I didn't find time to finish my Uplift Universe Alien Relation Challenge on CGSociety. Here are some of my concept sketches I did for the challenge.
The goal was to show the relationship between aliens and Humans.

Taronga Zoo

We went to the Taronga Zoo on Saturday. It's an amazing zoo but unfortunately we arrived a little late that we had only 3 hours to walk around and we missed a couple of animals. But the weather was great and we had really close looks at the animals.
Picture time! ^^

And another great view to the beautiful Sydney skyline.

Later that evening we went to a birthday party of a friend of manuel's. We had a great time. Today is Sunday and since we were pretty exhausted from all the trips we've done during the week, we decided to stay at home doing nothing. Mimi cooked super delicious dinner (as usual) and we watched a weird but funny movie called 'The Heartbreak Kid' afterwards. Off to bed...

Garie Beach

Times flies like an's friday already and Manuel and I went on a day trip to the Royal National Park. We drove down to the Garie Beach. This was definitely the best beach I've seen since I came here. Have a look at the pictures!

We walked up the hill and had a fantastic view from the top!

Jenolan Caves

After stopping by at Pulpit Rock we continued our tour to the Jenolan Caves. It was an one hour drive and it was very exiting to drive on the very tight winding road down to the caves.

We did a 1.5 hours guided tour through the Lucas Cave. This cave contains the highest and largest chambers of the Jenolan Caves.
The scale of the chambers were incredible.


The most photographed feature of the Lucas Cave seems to be the Broken Column...and I just took a picture to raise the quote... ^^

It was an awesome 2 days trip and we are pretty tired now....
(_ _ )zzZ


The weather was perfect! Blue sky and we finally rent a car for a week and drove straight to the Blue Mountains. The car is pretty comfortable. It's a hyundai but I had to get used to driving on the left side of the road....everything is mirrored and changing gears with the left hand is quiet difficult. And when I turn...I always turn on the wipers first! ^^;

We parked our car in Blackheath and went for a pretty long and exhausting walk from Govetts Leap Lookout to Evans Lookout and all the way back. Other than in the city it was very cold up in the mountains. Thank god that we took some warm clothes with us. In the night the temperature was even below zero.

The air was fresh and view was overwhelming. Since we wanted to continue our tour to the Jenolan Caves, we decided to stay over night in Blackheath in a motel. And damn it! My room was so cold....I suffered through the night T.T

The next morning we drove to the Pulpit Rock Lookout which was the most spectacular one of the three we have seen.

and here are two of my favorite pictures I took on our way.
