I'm off to Sydney in 2 days! Whoop! Having my first ever girlie weekend with one of my old best friends from when we lived in Melbourne 10 years ago! I am beyond excited!
I adore Sydney - this will be my 3 rd trip 3 years in a row ow. It is made even more exciting that Kristy has lived there too, so I am looking forward to seeing the real Sydney if you like!
I have only ever been in the CBD area. We are staying at Rushcutters Bay which is just on the outskirts of the CBD. I love seeing new parts of big cities.
I am even feeling confident about catching the train from the airport ( it is amazing - come on Auckland! So incredible that you can be n the city within 15-20 minutes or so!) , swapping at Central Station and then jumping on the Bondi line. I have never been to Bondi Beach.
I think we' ll have dinner somewhere late Friday night, Saturday catch a ferry over to Manly ( new for me too and have been told about gorgeous shops there) and also maybe Gap in the city and the Australian Museum ( I have never walked through the Botancial Gardens and up past the State Library to the Australian Museum).
And Mardi Gras is on too - the biggest Mardi Gras in the world apparently !
And a wool shop - I know where one is - my fist ever visit to an Aussie wool shop! I wasn't into knitting when we lived in Melbourne sadly.
Love big cities! Can't wait! Any other good ideas for things to see? I'd love to go to IKEA too but think we might run it of time!
I am sure the husband will cope. :)
