Travel Blogs from Sydney
After a 14:20 flight (we were fast, apparently we didn't have as much head wind) and an 18 hour time change from LAX I arrived in Sydney at the ungodly hour of 6:30am. I was able to get some intermittent sleep on the plane, so my focus today was to do whatever it takes to beat jetlag (which I would consider quite successful. I went to bed just …
After another night flight with no sleep we arrived bleary eyed at 7am in the glorious sunshine of Australia. We couldn't check in that early though so we dropped the bags off and went for a walk which we are both bad at because we tend to walk for miles at a time without realising.
We walked to the botanic gardens next to the …
G'day from Down Under (the world that is not the duvet)
At last i’ve managed to get a chance to sit and catch up with the blog for those of you, including National security, who like to keep tabs on our movements.
Well here we are in the land of sea, sun and surf- in the middle of winter. John soon discovered even Australia …
So as I was walking to find free Wifi to write this in my mind I drafted my first blog post like this... As much as I hate to admit it, here I am at McDonald's in Bondi Beach solely for the free internet... Luckily, on my way, I came across a place called the Bucket List, so instead of MickeyD's I'm enjoying a glass of Australian riesling and …
So, although the rain is still pouring down, we decided to take a trip to the Blue Mountains today. This is a really beautiful part of Sydney with canyons and green hills.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSpringfield Lodge Sydney
Springfield Lodge is like a diamond in the rough. Walking down the street you will notice far too many hostel accommodations within the area. Springfield lodge looks more like a boutique hotel. It has a highly rated restaurant on the main floor, very chic restaurants and pubs within the block and a high end grocery store directly across the street. The staff are super friendly and accommodating. I arrived before 7am, and they were happy to store my bag and allow me to check in by noon if I needed.
When I checked in the room they gave me the top floor. This is only accessed either via the stairs or taking the elevator to the 3rd and walking an additional flight. My room does not have a view, but they make up for this by providing me with a queen size bed.
Although the bathroom is tiny (super tiny, my knees could hit the wall when I am using the toilet), they provide a lot of hotel amenities, including plenty of towels, room fridge, coffee, kettle, shampoo and conditioner.
They do have laundry and kitchen facilities in the basement which are available during extended office hours.
I would consider this room on par with the size you would find in many European cities with the facilities and amenities of a North American motel for a far reduced price of a Sydney accommodation
