    Another flight, this time to Sydney. The airbnb was ok and good for the money, but nothing to rave about. Sydney is a beautiful city and the coastline is amazing. The weather was lovely during our stay and we really made the most of it. We went down to the harbour and caught the ferry to Watson Bay and it was packed with people. Not surprisingly, because the views of the city and beaches are fantastic. While in Sydney we also hired a car and drove up to another city a few hours drive up the coast called Newcastle. We visited Newcastle so we could visit Maddie's cousin Patricia. I must say we were only there a day, but I fell in love with Newcastle. Stunning coastline and being a fairly small city, it had a very relaxed vibe. Would definitely live there. Once back at Sydney we decided to do the one thing I wanted to do most in Australia and that is to visit the Blue Mountains. It was a an hour or so west of Sydney and is absolutely stunning. And there is a slight blue haze across the land, which is created by the leaves on the trees. While in Sydney we also got to meet Patricia's son Liam and also another of my friends Phil and Tegan and their 3 daughters. On our last day we did the Coogee to Bondi Beach walk which was brilliant. We swam on nearly every beach we came to, and nearly got maimed on one of them. At the end we caught the ferry into town and drank beers by the Opera House before hitting a cool beer pub followed by an amazing Indian restaurant then a very funny uber car share home. Sydney gets the thumbs up from us!Read more
