Sydney, Australia

How good is Sydney!

We were extremely fortunate for the 48 hours we were in Australia’s largest city.  The weather was perfect, the traffic was non-existent, and Mr and Mrs Bates looked after us in style.

Arriving in a 6am from our overnight flight, we hopped on the 400 bus to Bondi, and after a great breakfast at a small cafe in Randwick, walked down the hill to a friend’s place in Coogee to rest and relax.

That night, Matt and Rach joined us for dinner at Matt’s restaurant, Cafe Sydney.  The view was sensational as we sat on top of Custom’s House and looked out at the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, and we enjoyed some sensational food and a few beers in great company.

The next day was super relaxing, as we wandered around the Eastern suburbs of Sydney, enjoying a walk from Bronte to Bondi and a great pub lunch at Clovelly.

DSC00868We topped off a great couple of days by destroying a huge sirloin steak with Matt and Rach for dinner, and were off to bed knowing that tomorrow would bring a business class flight to Buenos Aires, Argentina via Santiago.  South America, here we come!
