    Sydneys Skyline bei Nacht

    July 24, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Unsere Zeit in Sydney ist leider schon wieder vorbei aber wir haben unseren letzten Abend sehr gemütlich verbracht. Zum Sonnenuntergang sind wir über die Harbour Bridge gelaufen und hatten schon von dort aus eine wunderschöne Sicht auf das Sydney Opera House und die Skyline von Sydney. Auf der anderen Seite angekommen haben wir es uns in einem kleinen Park mit Picknick gemütlich gemacht und die Aussicht genossen. Danach sind wir noch ein Stück am Ufer entlangspaziert bis es dann zu Fuß wieder zurück auf die andere Seite ging.
    Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit hier in Sydney und sind unserer Gastfamilie sehr dankbar für die kostenlose Unterkunft und Verpflegung! So viel Gastfreundlichkeit wie in den letzten 12 Monaten haben wir wohl noch nie erlebt.

    Sydney - Luna Park, Harbour Bridge 2

    May 4 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Nachdem ich die Harbour Bridge ausgiebig von allen Seiten fotografiert habe 😉, bin ich wieder über die Brücke zurück. Die Brücke verbindet die Stadtteile Sydney Nord und The Rocks miteinander.
    The Rocks ist ein historisches Stadtviertel und der älteste Stadtteil von Sydney. Hier sehen die Gebäude auch noch schön "alt" aus - ein schöner Kontrast zu den Wolkenkratzern.Read more

    Final Day in Sydney

    October 30, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Although Kelly was up early for a 7:30 breakfast meeting, I got a much needed sleep in. Kelly even brought me some breakfast up to the room.
    This mornings Companion program was The Rocks Walking Tour. The Rocks is a historical area very near our hotel which is actually the area where Sydney was first inhabited by the Europeans. Many of the first people who arrived here were actually convicts from England. At the time England had no room, so they were sent to Australia. The convicts were sentenced to work at developing Sydney into a colony. With hard work, their sentence was pardoned or reduced and then many contributed to the development of the city as architects, woodworkers, developers of the banking system, as well as other areas of expertise. Today, if one can trace their ancestry back to the First Fleet of convicts, it is quite prestigious. However, back in the day it was not. Our tour ended with lunch at Sydney’s oldest hotel - The Lord Nelson. Quite a drawn out lunch, but with a bunch of women, there was plenty of conversation. I sat with people from Cypress, Dubai, Auckland, and Charlotte, NC.

    The Praxity conference concluded with a fun night beach party. We all were to dress on Aussie beach wear. We took the ferry across the harbour to an amusement park where we had drinks, dinner and a dance. One interesting that they do here for organized dinners is “ alternate drop”. They have 2 appetizers ( which they call entrees) and 2 main courses and they alternate drop the servings around the table. The same goes for the main course. So you end up trading with your neighbor if you don’t like what you were given.

    Harbour Bridge und Luna Park bei Nacht

    March 14, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    Nach dem Abendessen bin ich dann mit zwei Freunden nochmal los auf und über die Harbour Bridge. Die ganze Stadt leuchtet und vom Luna Park hat man ein richtiges Postkartenmotiv mit dem Opernhaus unter der Brücke.

    Luna Park with the kids

    April 12, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    The kids got dropped off at our fancy spot then we head to Luna Park. Its a small amusement park right on the water with views of Harbour bridge. I thought the rides would be dinky but it would be fun to hang with kids. To my amazement I quite enjoyed almost all of the rides and had an absolute blast with them.

    We head out and had some lunch then came home. Tom and I went to get groceries fir dinner and cook some tacos for the family. Great evening and what a great time with Dov and the family. Wish we lived closer!
