In an odd way, Laneway is the first true music festival I've been to. I went to Live 8 in Philly and various concerts, but not a festival in the Woodstock kind of way. And while Laneway wasn't in a...

I'm looking for places to post international travel stories - advice, experiences, all of it. Anyone have any suggestions? Or anyone they could put me in touch with?

Much appreciated!

Wow, I'm just awful at using social media for anything other than self-promotion now, aren't I? Well, anyway, go over to the article and tell me what you think! SEOs, you too. If I'm completely off my rocker, just put me in my place. :)

I'm sorry, but there is nothing other than a 5-star option for Messina. Especially the original Messina. While I'm not a fan of all their specials, usually there's at least one 'hit' for me. Especially if alcohol is involved. The gelato is always creamy and the flavours fantastic. Nothing really to complain about, expect the small thing that I have to remember to have cash on hand to come here. Which I rarely carry. Other than that, always amazing.

My friend and I came here on a Saturday morning (relatively early) and it was still quite busy, so first off that was a relatively good sign. Cozy space - and not to the point where we were bumping elbows with the tables around us, which is a nice change for Surry. They follow in the Brewtown tradition and don't disappoint, for sure. I'm always a fan of a good bircher and they deliver. Simple, good food done well is hard to do badly and Gnome definitely doesn't.

I have yet to actually dine in at Sushi Yachiyo, as it's been booked out every time I go. I've gotten takeaway instead, and I have to say, it's been an amazing choice. A few weeks ago they had a ribs special where they were smoked for like 3 days or something ridiculous, and the meat was falling off the bone. Legitimately some of the best food regardless of cuisine I've had in Sydney yet. Also have to thank the lovely staff who recommended it to me. Must-go.

For a cafe, this place is very large. Felt like a bit more of a hotel-esque run joint than something a bit more personal. The food was good, though - I got the bircher museli and a chai latte. There was a lot of fruit, which I liked. Maybe it was because this place is in Double Bay, or the time I was there, but there were a lot of older families and couples, which I don't mind, but for the brunch culture vulture in me was a bit odd. Overall good experience, but wouldn't go out of my way to go again.

The greens has a great atmosphere, even when the weather is crappy out and you can't take advantage of the lawn bowling. It does require membership within 5k, so...be ready for that if you weren't aware. Good beer selection and choice of share plates, plus the space for large groups of people if you'd like to have a bunch of people there for any particular event. It's a bit out of the way - not really close to any trains (equidistant from N Syd and Waverton), but if you're on the North side anyway, it's a good bet for a nice pint with friends.

Sky Terrace is a place you go to once for the awe-factor. Great views, but limited seating. Food is okay, but there was little variety; same with the wines. The nature of everything being 'pop up', I guess. We did break out the life size Jenga towards the end of the night, which was fun. If I remember correctly, last call was quite early, and they were ushering everyone out by about 10:30PM, which for some, is when the night is just getting started. Like I said, not a bad place to go and experience once, but not somewhere I would go any more frequently than that.

This was another one of those places I've been to where I've wondered if what we ordered is what we would actually get. The service the day my friend and I were there seemed quite...scattered. I wasn't overly impressed with the food and the area seemed a bit cramped inside with all the tables, though part of that might have been because my friend and I were in a middle table so it was difficult to really feel like we had 'space'.
