Ellie’s Travel Diary

Location: Australia

MapSo yesterday we went to Sydney Bridge and the Opera House.....

It was amazing! The opera House is really impressive and we have booked to see a ballet there on Thursday evening before we leave Sydney. The Bridge was ok (frankly, to me it was just a bridge, big whoop!)

We had lunch in a pub called The Glenmore, which had a roof terrace with amazing views, which would have been better had the Germans not parked their super cruise liner right in the way! All i have to say, is "two world wars and one world cup"!

We then made it back to where we are staying and had a wander around Chinatown and Pitt Street.

Today we were going to have a picnic in the Botanical Gardens but the weather is really poo again so that had to be cancelled. Instead we took a walk (may i add a 4 hour one at that !) around most of Sydney. We came across an area called Kings Cross which provided me with my first ever sighting of a transvestite hooker! Not a good look!

Not sure what we will be doing tomorrow and i think the weather is still meant to be a bit rubbish but if it is ok then we are doing a costal walk from Bondi Beach to Bronte beach......brown girl in the sun tr la la la!
