It has been a while since we have posted our last blogpost, but we were busy travelling Vietnam the last weeks.
But before we will tell you about our time in Vietnam, we want to give you a summary of our short stopover in Sydney, Australia’s biggest City.
After two and a half months in Asia we felt that is was time for a change and that New Zealand should be our next destination. There weren’t any direct flights and we had to have a stopover in Australia anyway, so we decided to stay a few days in Sydney.
First of all: We love it!
For us, Sydney is one of the most beautiful and worth to live cities we have ever been to. We loved the huge parks, the docks, the costal area between Bondi Beach and Congee Beach and the well-balanced mixture between work and leisure.
We stayed at an Airbnb near Strathfield Station on the west with good connections to the city center. Because of our limited time we had to focus on what we want to see and decided on primary walking through the city center.
We visited Darling Harbor with its restaurants, bars and malls on busy Saturday evening, strolled through the beautiful Botanical Garden with a perfect opera view and enjoyed the stunning views on the Opera House and Harbor Bridge. We also liked “The Rocks”, Sidney’s old town, very much and I had my first “German Brezel” with butter for the first time in two and a half months of travelling.
We also went to famous Bondi Beach, which is easily accessible by bus, but weren’t really impressed. The beach is beautiful, but quite crowded (it was a summer Sunday afternoon, maybe that’s why ). From Bondi Beach we went along the Bondi Congee walk, a beautiful pathway along beaches and cliffs passing more white, sandy beaches and impressive cliffs. We really enjoyed this two hours hike and would totally recommend it!
Two days in Sydney might be enough to see most sights, but we wouldn’t have minded staying there for some more days just to have enough time to enjoy the parks, beaches and checking out the suburbs.
