Sydney – part 1

We spent 2 weeks in sydney, touring round the city, beaching it up, going to the opera house, trying aussie beers at the beerfest and pratting around.

I thought sydney was pretty amazing. the city reminded me a lot of new york, except sydney has such a great harbour and is a lot greener. also, sydney seems a lot more enviromental without being forced and fake.

The architecture of the opera house was cool because it looked amazing from every angle. we decided to go to a show and see the inside. the show was okay – an all-women version of Taming of the Shrew with karaoke. i think seeing an opera would also be amazing.

Staying in Sydney is kind of like being in nyc – very expensive. In an attempt to stay within our budget, we tried out a few different hostels, each one with its own particularities or as lonely planet would put it,
“a lot of character.” This included everything from a reading lamp chained to the wall to a girl dressed as a boy that stole our cheese. one of my ultimate faves was some wasters that rummaged through our garbage searching for latenight snacks.

I took kelly to the beach where home and away is filmed (an aussie soap that heath ledger, danni minogue, isla fisher and guy pearce all made pre-hollywood appearances in). She wasnt impressed, until i made her watch it and she loved it.
kelly – aussie soaps aren’t crap like american ones. but going to that beach still wasn’t very cool.
