Our Trip to Sydney, Australia

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Sydney, Australia.  We had always wanted to visit Australia but as you probably already know, it's very very far from Los Angeles. :)
      I was given the amazing opportunity to go on a work trip to Sydney in the beginning of March and we decided to take advantage of it.  My husband came along and got to play for a few days while I was working, and then we stayed an extra 5 days for sightseeing and fun.  I am currently in a semi jet-lagged stupor, but wanted to give you a quick taste of what we saw. This will be followed up by a more involved blog post when I feel that my ability to construct sentences returns.
    Sydney is an incredibly picturesque city. So picturesque that I took 850 pictures while we were there. Isn't digital photography great? I can't imagine how much that would have cost in film and developing fees about 15 years ago.

I took an immense amount of pictures of the Opera House. 

Pictures during the day...

pictures at night...


...and pictures while sitting on the steps

I also took pictures of beautiful churches...

beautiful scenery...

...and beautiful and delicious food.

Pictures on boats...

pictures on beaches...

and pictures in parks. 


I can't wait to tell you more about our trip and the great tour we took to the Blue Mountains.   It was a 10 hour tour so you can imagine how many pictures I took that day.  :) I'll be back to share more soon.

Wow! Beautiful picture-teasers!
My sister & BIL lived in Australia for over 10 years & I was able to visit them several times. while I only saw the Sydney airport, I will agree that Australia is very photogenic! (They lived on an island near-ish to Brisbane.)

I'm looking forward to reading & seeing more about your trip soon....

Sydney looks wonderful! I loved seeing the pics. By the way, I love pretzels.
