    The Sydney way of life

    February 28 in Australia

    Um das australische Leben kennenzulernen und erst mal anzukommen (wir sind wieder in westlichen Gefilden), haben wir den Tag am Balmoral Beach 🏝 verbracht (einer der unzähligen Strände in Sydney) – zusammen mit einheimischen Familien und Chefs in ihrer Mittagspause. Nach der obligatorischen Supermarkt-Tour haben wir zuhause mit Kate, Mike und Carter gegessen und gemütlich zusammen gesessen 🍷 und uns von den „Locals“ (wenn man das zu einer Amerikanerin und einem Neuseeländer sagen kann) Tipps für die nächste Zeit geben lassen!Read more

    Sydney

    November 24, 2017 in Australia

    The original plan was to head to Newcastle after Port Macquarie however we couldn't find anywhere to stay so we headed straight down to Sydney instead. It turns out the reason for this is because there is a big rally car racing event going on this weekend. The Greyhound bus times out of Port Macquarie are really pants so the alarm went off at 3:15am in order for us to catch the 5am bus. It's around 5 and a half hours to Sydney but both of us dozed most of the way so it didn't feel that long. As we drove into Sydney, we caught our first glimpse of the Opera House which was pretty cool.

    The Greyhound dropped us off at the central station so we grabbed ourselves some Opal cards (Sydneys equivalent of the Oyster card) and jumped on a bus back over the Harbour Bridge to the North of Sydney where our Airbnb is. We are staying with a lovely couple called Dennis and Diana. Dennis is from Germany and Diana is from Argentina.

    Despite it it only being midday, we had already been up for 9 hours and the hanger was setting in, so we walked to Woolworths to grab some bits for lunch. I then lay down for a power nap and before I knew it, it was 2:40pm. Not wanting to waste the day, we headed to Chinaman's Beach which Dennis recommended, to catch the last of the sun. It's a cute little beach, away from the hustle and bustle of tourists however due to the wind, we had a repeat of our Byron Bay experience. After 5 minutes and everything being completely covered in sand, we gave up on the beach and decided to lie down in a grassy park just behind the beach instead.

    After 2 nights of burgers, I fancied something a bit healthier for dinner so I cooked up some wholesome fish and vegetables which was really nice. We then sat out in the garden with Diana, Dennis and Dennis' cousin Kim.

    Playdate in Mosman

    December 30, 2016 in Australia

    While kids went wild at beach and over Lego, Niall and I digged into some old fotoalbums. Realising that we havent changed a bit since the times when we were using street directories to find our way through Sydney Harbour.

    Seal Show

    October 16, 2017 in Australia

    I found it entertaining that nearly all of the "performers" in the show were California Sea Lions. We traveled how far just to see ones we can travel 45 minutes to see on the coast?

    Still, it was a rather entertaining show and they did get to do some cool tricks.

    Bird Show

    October 16, 2017 in Australia

    This was a great show. Many birds trained to fly through the audience, very close. Saw some hawks, an eagle, parrots, and cockatiels. The long-beaked guy here was the warm up act for the show. These birds are everywhere- scavengers, like pigeons.
    The back drop for the show was pretty amazing as you can see here behind us. Kinda surreal to be sitting here looking at this seen, IN PERSON.

    Heading back to Sydney

    October 16, 2017 in Australia

    A lot of walking today. Brenda's feet are doing ok, but they sure have had a lot of steps put on them over the last couple of days.

    We took the sky rail down to catch the ferry and had a quick jaunt back to Sydney.

    Sydney Tag 3

    April 19, 2017 in Australia

    Heute haben wir uns also mal wieder aufgerafft uns längerfristig aus dem Haus zu begeben. Der Morgen war insofern spannend, als dass wir auf die Drillinge aufgepasst haben, während Lauren die Große in den Kindergarten gebracht hat. War nur eine halbe Stunde, aber trotzdem aufregend...keine Ahnung wie man das jeden Tag aushält mit den Dreien! Gott sei Dank gibt es Kinderfernsehen :-)
    Anschließend sind wir in den Taronga Zoo gefahren, der wohl schönstgelegene Zoo der Welt mit unbezahlbarem Blick über die City. Leider auch extrem voll, weil ja Osterferien sind, aber das Wetter spielt immerhin mit...nach einem kurzen Wolkenbruch - wobei wir feststellen, dass wir weder Jacken noch Schirme mitführen - kommt dann doch die Sonne raus. Leider verlieren wir Felix' Fjällräven-Cap, vielleicht wurde es aber auch entwendet, als wir bei der Bird Show den Buggy draußen lassen mussten.
    Abends treffen wir Jessie zum Dinner in Crows Nest: schön, dass das geklappt hat, da ja leider irgendwie alle arbeiten müssen und wir wegen der Kinder auch nicht endlos flexibel sind. Wie immer ist die Zeit zu kurz, aber zurück bei Chris und Lauren wird es immerhin noch ein ein lustiger, später Abend!
