    Well the journey to Sydney was not as bad as I expected.
    It was helped by a stop over in Dubai at Maz and Sue's apartment.
    The second leg was a 14 hour flight, but was ok especially with the usual
    good Emirates service. When we landed in Sydney, the taxi I'd booked online
    was waiting for us.
    Ours was the last flight in so our bags came quite quickly, and we where in
    the hotel by about 10pm.
    We decided to go straight to bed as we were all very tired.
    The hotel was ok not brilliant but I've been in a lot worse.
    The next morning we had breakfast then headed off to pick up the open top
    bus tour that I'd also booked online.
    We did both the city route and the Bondi beach route, so we got quite a
    good look at Sydney, which I may add, is quite a nice city.
    After the bus tour we headed for some food and decided to try a pub type
    restaurant not for from the port area.
    Sheila, Sue and I had fish and chips while Maz had burger and chips, along
    with two drinks each, and the bill came to just under 200 Australian
    So nice as Sydney is, it's bloody expensive.
