I arrive back home to Sydney after a long flight delay from Melbourne, the flight itself was only 1hr 20 mins we were delayed at Melbourne for 1 half hours and then when we landed we were not allowed off plane for a further 1 and half hours! and to top it off - the car rental company that I hired my Tassie car from has charged my credit card $1000 as I had a stone chip....I'm fuming!
Anyway, exciting stuff - Jane arrive at 21.00 tomorrow! woooo - I spend the day planning our east coast trip, last minute as usual. I gather a few leaflets on the Whitsundays and Fraser Island as our trip is based around them.
I soon realize as much as I like to come back to Sydney, I want to leave again to go explore - we fly to Cairns on Saturday, so just have to do the sights with Jane
We set off the next day for Manly beach on the ferry with my Frenchie friend Alex who I had a great laugh with in Melbourne. It was a lovely sunny day, Jane snaps away at the opera house and the bridge - what a tourist...ha ha. We have a good day, which included a fish and chip lunch (not England's standard, but very good) and we stroll through the Botanical gardens when we get back, Jane sees the Bats and goes wild! I guess they are as common as pigeons here! We try to go to a salsa night and get refused as we didn't have ID on us!! its never been a problem for me here before, so I was annoyed! instead we go to a bar and see some live music which included a samba band, so a good compromise!
The next day we go to Bondi with Alex again, and have a good time on the beach and a bit of a shop, we meet Emma and Jo, Jo has been here about 3 weeks now, Jo and Pete are planning to stay here 2 or 3 or 4 years - they haven't decided yet! It was really nice catching up, and we had a nice meal. So that's Sydney ticked off the list for Jane, and my tick is around the 20th maybe....
