Sydney

May 30, 2013 by 2sorefeet

End of April we found ourselves on a plane to Sydney thinking “where did 5 months go?” Our time in Asia had come to an end in equal parts sadness and excitement. Not alone were we leaving behind our good friends Bianca & Matt, with whom we had passed a great week in Bali but also we were leaving a continent which we had fallen in love with. On the other hand we were on route to South America via Australia (for 4 days) to have a whole new experience at the other side of the world!

Arriving in Sydney was a weird experience! Locals were white, people obeyed traffic lights & the streets were not littered with plastic bags and rubbish! 4 days is not a lot of time, but we still managed to visit the “must see” attractions. Completely aware that it is an enormous cliché but the truth is: a ‘round the world’ trip is just not complete without a picture of us in front of the Sydney Opera house. So here you go folks:

Probably the most horrible photo ever, but that's what you get for asking a Chinese tourist.

Marie et son dagobert! :D

A quick trip out to Bondi beach proved what I had heard many times before… it is full of Irish people, which gives the impression you are in Spanish Point (my favourite beach in Ireland) on a really hot day, which unfortunately does not happen all too frequently. But apart from that, the beach itself is beautiful.

One of the best things about our brief visit here was that I got the meet up with one of my friends from Ireland. A nice night out in Newtown, one of the bohemian neighbourhoods of the city showed us a different side to the town. It was great seeing Laura again and meeting Kris, we had a great time with you. Thanks guys!

And then it was time to say goodbye and go to the airport again. . . South America here we come!!!

Adios Amigos!
