Sunny Sydney Sojourn

Welcome to the new year!

It has been a while since I last posted so I have included some pics of what I have been up to, firstly starting with our fun Christmas. We had time to catch up with all the family, which for me is what Christmas is all about. Jodie and a friend prepared a wonderful feast for us and it was the first Christmas day in quite a while that I was able to sleep in!

With the hustle and bustle of Christmas over, Roddy and I decided to head to the city for some quiet time, so we booked ourselves into the Sheraton on the Park for a couple of days, which was fantastic.

It might seem a bit strange, staying in the city for a mini holiday, seeing I travel there for work every day,  but it was great to really see our city as a tourist and to take the time to just follow our nose and just wander around. There is just so much to see and do!

We went to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) for lunch, we walked over the harbour bridge, we walked along the foreshore at Kirribilli, roamed around The Rocks, meandered through the Royal Botanical Gardens, had a drink in the 'O' bar at Australia Square, ate at some fantastic restaurants, did some shopping at the sales and walked and walked and walked!!

Sydney is a truly beautiful city, there is so much more we want to do, that we are planning for another 'city mini break'.  It was great to take the time to enjoy the perfect weather in one of the world's most beautiful cities. I can thoroughly recommend taking some time out to get to know Sydney - you won't regret it!

Fresh Watermelon - taste of summer!

Sweet treats called Koeksisters - from South Africa for dessert

I can't believe I have never walked across the bridge before - despite crossing it every day by train on the way to work!
