I'm a bit in love.
I know it's hard to believe, and I probably shouldn't be on a trip of this nature, but I can't help it.
You can't fail to be in this city. It has to be one of the most romantic placesI have ever been to, and the only person I have to share it with is Dan. (I say onnly mainly because there is no romantic feeling there - not because he is terrible company).
Paris has nothing on this place - move over Venice - and Prague? Prague Shmarbe. With the sun shining on everything, and the immaculate streets, and the beautiful gardens, and the over friendly people, and the glisteing wate, and yes, even the beaches. Everything oozes a romantacism I have never felt anywhere else, and it's amazing.
Watching the sun set over the harbour just inspires the poet in me to write something to sum up the feeling at the time, but maybe because of my lack of talent, I couldn't quite manage it. Or maybe it's because there is no way to explain how it makes you feel - you just have to feel it.
I would have very much enjoyed having a pretty girl to share it with and experience it together - Dan wouldn't evengive me the hug I so desired!
Yesterday we had explored the boatincal gardens, so today we spent the day doing as much exploring as we could - took a ferry from the harbour to Manly Beach and wandered around there for a bit, and then went make and made our way to the Aquarium at Darling harbour.
We were proper tourists for the day!
Being here for just the last couple of days has been lovely - for all the reasons mentioned above - but has felt a bit more of a holiday, and less like an adventure. That though, is not a complaint. We have loved every second of being here, and wouldn't have missed it, especially knowing what we know now, but I know I at least am looking forward to more exploration, and venturing to do things slightly different - not the type of things you might do somewhere else.
I daresay had we spent more time here we would have done those things, but we aren't, so we didn't. But we have had time to sufficiently recover from India now, the recuperation in this city means we can fully appreciate our next stop.
