Apr 20, 2006 - Sydney

Hallo aus Sydney, wie ihr sicherlich gesehen habt sind wir jetzt in Sydney. Die Tage in Brisbane waren sehr gemuetlich endlich wiedermal ein Bett keine 1 cm dicke Isomatte und dann noch ein 4er Zimmer mit eigenem Fernseher und Kuehlschrank. Trotzdem haben wir dann Brisbane nach einem langem Abschiedsfruehstueck von Marc am 18.04 mit unserem kleinen Mietautochen verlassen. Wie schon erwaehnt hatten wir uns einen Hynday Getz gemietet das war fuer uns drei (Steffi, Evia und ich) billiger als mit dem Bus zu fahren. Der Getz war das billigste...

Apr 15, 2006 - Travel day to Australia

Today was a travel day. We flew three hours from Queenstown, NZ to Sydney, had a four-hour lay over and flew on another three hours to Cairns. Cairns functions as the primary gateway to The Great Barrier Reef but also has the rainforest just out their back door. We got to our rooms at 11:30 pm but, having picked up two hours in transit, it seemed like 1:30 am. Still though, everyone traveled quite well. We'll see how things go tomorrow with a 7:00 am wake up call. We'll be on a boat tomorrow, heading out for snorkeling and diving on The...

Apr 13, 2006 - easy dumb Sydney

After the rigors of northern China, Sydney appears very easy: a London-light with the sun and the sea thrown in for good measure. easy to walk around, easy people. the whole mod-oz "nouvelle cuisine" looked to us to be a bit of hype though. Apres le froid et la grisaille de Pekin, ce fut un pur instant de relaxation que notre arrivee sur Sydney apres dix heures de vols. Une jolie ville super cool meme trop super cool pour moi, on s'y ballade a pied tranquillement, il y a plein de jolis petits quartiers avec des maisonettes un grand ciel...

Apr 13, 2006 - Sydney

I have now gone full circle and ended up back in Sydney. I was a bit down when I booked into the hotel cos I know that once I check out of here, there is only one place I am going. Today, Lisa, my grandaughter and I, climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The climb is very well organised and there is nothing to worry about and the views are sensational.

Apr 12, 2006 - Sydney - 12 avril 2006

Sidney - 12 avril 2006 Nous avons réservé un backpackers au centre ville de Sidney. C'est un grand immeuble dans lequel nous avons une grande chambre avec des lits superposés et une cuisine par étage. La terrasse est sur le toit. Nous aimons nous promener dans la ville, faire les magasins et manger des petites choses. Nous visitons l'opéra - magnifique bâtiment et irons Leïla et moi assister à un ballet issu d'une collaboration entre une troupe aborigène et une troupe blanche australienne. Très bien. Nous ferons une croisière en bâteau pour...

Apr 11, 2006 - The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz

Upon arrival at Sydney airport we were immediately hit with the combination of intense heat and humidity - hottest place we had been so far and we weren't quite ready for it! Thankfully we didn't have to wait long for Ian to pick us up (from the exact spot where Jamie and Ian arrived 7 years ago - only Ian never went home!) and subject us to a welcome "breeze" in his convertible as we zoomed over to his abode in the affluent Neutral bay area. After a quick introduction to his precocious "puppy", Winston, in true Aussie style we were whipped...

Apr 4, 2006 - Australia - Sydney

Well I arrived in Perth and met an Aussie mate who used to live back in Wick. She gave me the big tour of the awesome beaches in Perth and the city, which is a really cool place. Then we had a big barbie in the evening and Michelle got her cousin and a Scottish girl along for the craic. We had a great laugh, a few beers and bigs steaks on the barbie. An ideal introduction to Ossie life! Next day I got the bus south to Dunsborough, a lovely little town where a former sheep shearing mate, Andrew Ingle, now runs a backpackers. I must confess...

Apr 3, 2006 - Day 76 Update - Sydney Australia

We awoke about 5am in Christchurch airport and proceeded to the check in desk where we were informed that there was no records of us for the flight and that we would have to wait until check-in closed to see if there were any spare seats for us!!! Lucky enough there were a few and we boarded the plane and arrived in Sydney at 8am after a 4 hour flight. We checked into a familiar hostel chain that we stayed in while we were in New Zealand. The hostel is located in the city centrte of Sydney, a nice city, its a cross between London and New...

Mar 31, 2006 - Sydney for lunch

Peter dropped us at the airport early and Sean thinks he was very patient with me because we were runing late and then I was having stresses at the traffic. Got through to Sydney city on the train to meet Megan for lunch. It was nice to see her and catch up with her, and Ben on the phone. We walked to see the Opera House and the bridge.

Mar 31, 2006 - SYDNEY - dorms and warehouses

Just arrived at our hostel and are waiting for our beds to be ready - Dans gone one another mission to find some trainers and left me here as I have a kidney infection and feel rubbish! Fun!! On first impressions, Dan said Sydney looks just like home, though I have to disagree. The buildings all have a colonial style, there are loads of warehouses everywhere, the fauna is different obvously and so is the light, which sounds strange but even though its a bit overcast today the light seems a different colour to how it would look at...
