Touristy mural shot taken at Blue Mountain!
This is a really really really late post because we went to Sydney last March. My mom wasn’t able to go with us because she had to go on this Europe trip thing as an incentive for work. On one hand it’s great she gets to go to Europe again, but on the other hand she wasn’t able to go with us, so I’m still deciding if it’s a good or bad thing.
Here are the non-city areas we went to. I really like how everything is relaxed in these places, like there’s all the time in the world.
On the way to go sand-boarding!
We also went to a lot of places that had to do with animals. It’s really amazing how well Australia takes care of them and how many institutions they have showcasing them!
Spot the baby joey!
By the way, did you know why koalas and kangaroos are the country’s icons? They’re the only animals native to that country that can’t walk backwards. They want the two animals to symbolize their country, that it always goes forward. Sila na.
We rode a small cruise to go dolphin watching. I’ve never seen them in the wild before!
And of course no one goes to Sydney without going to the Sydney Opera House!
I couldn’t get a good shot with the Opera House! So windy :|
We lived right in Chinatown so food wasn’t a problem. They have this beautiful alley, I really regret not taking better pictures. :(
It was a nice trip, and I’m glad I was able to spend it with my family.
