Tenth Anniversary in Sydney

We are hav­ing pret­ty awe­some time in Aus­tralia. We came here to cel­e­brate ten years of our love­ly mar­riage.

We spent three splen­did days in Gold Coast most­ly vis­it­ing theme parks. The evening street show per­formed by four guys on Cav­ill Avenue was amaz­ing; we enjoyed it two nights but donat­ed $20 only once. We also vis­it­ed Aus­tralian Fair and Pacif­ic Fair shop­ping malls. Not impressed with Aus­tralian Fair mall, but loved the vast­ness and the seat­ing spaces in the Pacif­ic Fair mall.

We then flew to Syd­ney. Today is day 2 in Syd­ney. The weath­er was great (hot) yes­ter­day and we explored CBD most­ly on foot. After break­fast and great cof­fee at Glo­ria Jeans on the Pitt Street, we walked to the close by Queen Vic­to­ria Build­ing and Pitt Street Mall. Then walked all the way to Chi­na­town. We then got into a tram to Dar­ling Har­bour, had lunch at the water­front mall and crossed the Pry­mont Bridge to vis­it Madame Tus­sauds. In the evening we took train to Cir­cu­lar Quay, enjoyed the night views of Har­bour Bridge and Opera House and had anniver­sary din­ner at Wolfies on the water­front.

Today it rained. We went to Taron­ga Zoo, bought pon­chos, and enjoyed encoun­ters with kan­ga­roos, wal­la­bies and the cutest koalas; the three main ani­mals we want­ed to see. We were not keen to see any ani­mals oth­er than these. I went to the rep­tiles area but did­n’t dare to go past the frogs. I detest rep­tiles, par­tic­u­lar­ly snakes. I love that New Zealand is snake-free.

Tomor­row is our last full day in Syd­ney. We will fly home on the morn­ing of the day after. We are hop­ing to explore Har­bour Bridge and Opera House tomor­row. Weath­er seems to be good. Hope it won’t rain tomor­row.

I loved the cafes and restau­rants in the CBD. I had great cof­fee and piz­za; great food over­all!

Here are few pho­tos.
