    Sydney Day 3

    August 8 in Australia

    We all had a lazy morning and a very leisurely walk around the botanical gardens followed by a late afternoon boat trip to see Manley. You catch a fast boat from circular quay which takes 18 minutes and is basically the commuter ferry. I imagine in the height of the summer it’s bustling little place which boasts the second best beach after Bondi in Sydney!

    Sydney Day 2

    August 7 in Australia

    Today is David’s Birthday and he chose to go to Bondi Beach which we did on the open top bus. It was sunny today and very windy but glad we went....been there , done that and didn’t buy a tee shirt! 😊
    We had an early tea and went to the Opera House in the evening to see Aida, it was an experience not to be missed but not sure that we are converts to Opera just yet 🤔

    Chinesisches Neujahr

    January 29, 2017 in Australia

    Das Chinesisches Neujahr startet am 27.1. und endet am 12.2. In Australien beginnt es sogar 2 Stunden früher als in China.
    Die Reise heute ging über:
    - Chinatown (inklusive Drachentanz)
    - zum Paddy's Market
    - hoch auf den Hügel mit dem Observatorium
    - und endete abends bei den Mondlaternen im Darling Harbour, wo es für jedes der 12 Zeichen des Mondtierkreises eine eigene Installation gab.
    2017 steht übrigens im Zeichen des Hahns.Read more

    Sydney, The Rocks day 1

    March 25 in Australia

    Sitting opposite the ship having the best coffee! Can see the bridge the ship and the opera house. Kids are still whinging and brady has hot chocolate all down his tshirt! 😬 good times 🤣
    I said we would go back to hotel and have a rest and maybe read a book soon since we were up before the sun! Addi’s reply was “yees! I can read the holy bible” 😱
    As we walked back to the markets we passed a musical busker Brady quite loudly said “is that a Xylophone that’s the worlds 2nd worst instrument we said what’s the first? his reply “have you head the bagpipes?” 🤦‍♀️😂Read more

    Goodbye Sydney & Australia!

    June 6, 2016 in Australia

    Onze laatste dag in Sydney en ook Australië zit er bijna op :( Gelukkig was het vandaag redelijk droog en soms zelfs zonnig, dus we hebben alles gedaan wat we graag nog wilden doen. Chinatown, Chinese garden, Botanic garden en nog even kijken bij het Opera house.

    Afgelopen twee dagen stormde het en viel de regen met bakken uit de hemel. Er leek geen einde aan te komen! Wat we toen vooral hebben gedaan is winkelen, naar de bioscoop en nog meer winkelen :) En ook nog een rondleiding met gids door de historische wijk The Rocks. Erg leuk!

    Elianne vliegt morgen naar huis en ik naar de volgende bestemming: L.A.! Het was zo gezellig samen :) Ik ga je heel erg missen!

    The Rocks & Luna Park

    November 23, 2013 in Australia

    Today the weather wasn't perfect so we postponed again Bondi beach (sunny day forecasted for tomorrow) so we took some time to explore The Rocks and Luna Park.

    Really good weather in the morning. There was a huge cruise ship at the International terminal and plenty of tourist filling quickly every corner of Circular Quay.

    We stroll along the water front all the way to Sydney Harbour Bridge where we captured great views of the Opera House. We then visited the weekend market, nothing especial and a bit touristy but enough to keep us busy.

    We spent some time walking around old buildings, including the oldest pub in OZ land. By now Ximena was really impatient so we grabbed the ferry for Luna Park.

    Similar to the one in St Kilda, I felt some especial charm in the place, like looking at something from the past. Definitely different to the theme parks in Gold Coast.

    Of course Ximena, a roller coaster maniac, couldn't resist getting 10 times on the Wild Mouse before a torrential rain started. Fortunately we found some shelter and had some lunch. It rained for about an hour and then clear sky again.

    After several rides, Ximena was getting tired and with some thunderstorm fast approaching we went back to the hotel to have a rest. The storm never reached Sydney so after having dinner we went to Circular Quay to have some photos of the Harbour at night and why not have a cup of coffee. Tomorrow is our last day and weather permitting, we will visit Bondi beach
