After an hour check-in i was informed my plane had been delayed for 24hours due to the thunderstorms you are having in london! Git a transfer onto a thai international plane though, and i welcomed the three aussies i got sat next to that informed me of everything i should do and see in sydney! Met Clare and alexa at the airport it was so nice to see them. They idn't recognise me said i'd become the traveller with my tan, platted hair and fisherman pants!! haha. After checking into our hotel we ook a walk down to the beautiful sydney opera house and harbour bridge, words can not describ them and pictures certainly don't do them justice. We watched the sunset whilst indulging in some fish and chips the perfect evening! 28th Sept - This morning we sorted out our bus passes for travelling up the east coast, after a sneaky starbucks we headed to the harbour bridge once again and climbed the pylon, it was amazing still tempted to climb the bridge itself! Next stop was the sydney tower 250m high with 360 degree views yet another amzing site! So much so that i ran up a stationary 150 step escalator! Tonight we dressed up and headed for a classy dinner at the eastbank resturant followed by a drink at the opera bar! 29th Sept - Took the boat from circular quay to manly beach - was lovely but the sunshine could have made an appearance and the seaguls a disappearance! especially as one decided to relieve himself on me! - nice!!!
