Where I’ve been, Sydney, what to do, when you have only four days

Sydney operaHere it is: part 10. I’m a bit proud of myself for blogging ten days in a row. And I want to finish my 10-Days-Special on Australia with a wrap up on Sydney as there is so much to do. There is definitively more to do than what I list, but let’s say you have four days in Sydney and the weather is nice, what should you do? Here are my favourite: Continue reading

Where I’ve been, Coastal Walk, Sydney, Australia, 2007

Bondi Beach, SydneySo, there are only two more posts left in the 10-Days-Special on Australia and this is the first of them: I want to tell you about the beauty of Sydney’s beaches and walks: the Coastal Walk from Bondi to Coogee Beach in Southern Sydney.

The walk starts at Bondi Beach. Now many people name it the beach to go when in Sydney. It’s a surfer’s beach, Continue reading

Where I’ve been: Blue Mountains, Australia, 2007

Part 8 of the 10-Days-Special on Australia is on the Blue Mountains, a mountainous region in New South Wales, Australia. It borders on Sydney’s metropolitan area, its foothills starting approximately 50 kilometres from the city, easily reached by train which makes it a great day trip from Sydney.

After about an hour ride, you’ll reach Katoomba, Continue reading

Where I’ve been: Sydney harbour, Australia, 2007

A ferry in Sydney HarbourSo this is already part seven? Time is just running, I guess. And while still having a cold, I feel that much better today, I might even go out for some food shopping… But first of all here is a part on Sydney again, this time on the harbour area and  ferries, one of the best things in Sydney as part of my 10-Days-Special on Australia.

Where I’ve been: Botanic Garden, Sydney, Australia, 2007

Royal Botanic Garden, SydneyPart 4 of my 10-Days-Special on Australia is concerned with Sydney again: One thing you shouldn’t miss in Sydney is a stroll around the Royal Botanic Garden and the Domain, a park that borders with the Royal Botanic Garden. This area is conveniently located east of the CBD and ends infront of the opera and borders Wooloomooloo harbour’s western side. Continue reading

Where I’ve been, The Rocks, Sydney, Australia, 2007

Part 3 of the 10-Days-Special on Australia will be on another part of Sydney: The Rocks. I’ve been there many times and took several people sightseeing when they came and visited. If you only have a few days in Sydney you should spend at least half a day at The Rocks, preferably on the weekend. You could either spend half of the day shopping in the CBD, walking through the Botanic Garden or taking a guided tour in the opera. Or you head to the other side, to Darling Harbour and the explore that part. But maybe you just start with the Rocks and see what the day brings. Continue reading

Have a drink, mate! The 7 best places I partied at.

Partying is something I don’t do so often, but on Saturday I went out. Of course it is hard to say which city or place is best for partying as not only location is important but far more important are things like mood, time and especially company. Taking all that into account I made a list of the seven best places I ever partied at. Continue reading
