We arrived in Sydney after an 8 hour night flight from Hong Kong, very tired as did not sleep, but once we landed and Matt met us at the airport, we were so excited that we were here. The weather has been scorching! We came back to Matt's apartment, which is really nice, he cooked us some breakfast and we got our head's down for a few hours.
We then went to the 'Opera Bar', which overlooks the bridge and the opera house. The view is something that we could not describe and of course it's funny how the beers always taste nicer in the hot weather, and of course the amazing scenery added to the experience. Being with Matt he made us drink lots so we are feeling slightly merry now!! And totally shattered.
We then went to a restaurant overlooking Darling Harbour, and had the biggest rack of ribs ever, the diet is not going well!!
What a great start to our first day in Sydney, we love this place!!! Off to bed now.
Oh yeah we can only download a few photos as its taking us too long (ie 5 hours to download 30 + photos) and we don't wish to miss any second of our amazing trip, so apologies, but at least you now wont get bored of seeing our ugly mugs!!! And we will tell you all about it when we are home.
Hello everyone! a quick update before we go out for a meal at the sky tower restaurant over looking the city. Today, the weather has been like England - well not that bad! still in shorts and t-shirts but cloudy...We went on the sydney seaplane today which flew over sydney opera house/bridge, and the Home and Away beach and many more places, was excellent, but do wish we had not had so much to drink last night!!
We then got the ferry over to Manly, which was excellent and did some shopping, we've got to send some bits home tomorrow as our excess is over already and we've only done 3 countries!!
Been great catching up with Matt and his friends, but we need a good night sleep as we are feeling a bit tired!!
Hope your all ok
