After a couple of weeks with an amazing workshop journey in Australia and a stop over in Singpore I’m back. so…get prepared for several photo-posts :)
After two never ending flights with the Singapore Airlines…which by the way has the best service ever…we arrived in Sydney in our wonderful apartment right at the Harbour Bridge.We had a wonderful view outside our balcony on the 14th floor
Below the apartment was Luna Park – an amusement park built in 1935 – such an amazing and fun entrance
The first day I was on my own and went with the ferry to Circular Quay where the wonderful opera house is. There is a really great system in System on using the Ferry boats- I enjoyed it so much- it is like having minivactions in a minivacation – lol . The opera was really quite something. I have to say the architecture fully reveals and grabs you when you see it in person.
From there I made my way to the beautiful Botanical Garden and saw soon the cute Flying Foxes …just hanging around in the trees
They are the largest bats in the world, totally harmless and pretty loud – LOL. It is a sound you never forget. Also something you won’t forget is the sight of a huge gigantic spider in a huge gigantic spider web…also just hanging out… (you will read the word huge throughout my posts about Australia probably quite often…everything is BIGGER in Australia)
You have to know that I have a little issue with spiders…funny enough the big one didn’t bug me that much…it is more those mean little ones that you don’t see and can’t keep your eye on that freak me out :) . And the warning to not lean against bushes didn’t help me much in the not freak part :)
I checked out the main shopping street – George Street – , The Rocks and went to the Museum of Contemporary Art which had amazing Mixed Media Installations and had a fab time in very nice weather . I had some daily observations:
The second day in Sydney my husband and I went to several fun markets and had a really good time.
I will post next about junkyards and workshops and over experiences in Australia :)
