Right to pick up where we left off we had just finished the neighbours tour in melbourne and were about to head to the airport to catch our flight to sydney...
We made it to the bus station to catch the bus to the airport just in time but about 5 mins after we got on the bus it broke down...in the middle of an intersection onto the freeway! Cars coming at us from all directions so we had to have police guards surround us so cars avoided us and then when another bus arrived we were escorted by the police into the other bus...oh we do like a bit of drama :D. Anyhoo we then arrived at the airport with 20 mins to go b4 the plane left and we literally sat down and off we went.
So we arrived in sydney and made our way to our hostel which is really nice in the suburbs but only 5 min metro to the city, really nice chilled place.
So far we have had 2 days in sydney and have done soo much...firstly went up the sydney tower for views over the entire city and it was awesome coz u get to go on a simulator first where it takes u over the whole of australia in about 10 mins! Then in the afternoon we wandered around the city getting our bearings (i swear we walk for miles each day! my feet bloomin hurt). We walked through the botanical gardens to mrs macquires point where u can look back across the harbour for awesome views of the opera house and the bridge..many posed photees were taken :D.
Day 2 in sydney and we caught a ferry to manly and went to manly beach and saw lots of beautiful beach scenery (surfers included :D). Spend most of the day down there today and then came bk to the city and sat outside the opera house chilling in the sun (its now 30c here) and listening to some guy setting up for a concert constantly saying 1..2...yerrr on the microphone lol. Was funny at the time...<)
We are now in sydney till tues or weds next week so will update again and also need to sort out what and how we are going to do things next coz we have nooo ideaa all we know is that we need to be in cairns in 6 weeks time :O
